Take control of your favourite-feathered Jedi’s, or join the pork side for the very first time.

Rovio has launched the second in the Angry Birds Star Wars franchise, with a new line of characters and story lines from Star Wars Episodes I-III.

Players can now choose whether they'll follow the feathered force, or join the pork side and play as either the birds or pigs.

Also, Rovio's partnership with Hasbro has brought our favourite characters into the real world with telepods – combining physical and digital gameplay allowing players to transport actual Angry Birds figures into the mobile and tablet versions of the game.

Jami Laes, EVP games at Rovio Entertainment, said: “We have taken the gameplay to a whole new level, giving our fans the option to play as both the birds and the pigs. We are also excited to introduce the amazing new telepods from Hasbro.

“For the first time ever our new characters will not only appear in future game updates, but also on store shelves. We’ve heavily invested in the longevity of the franchise and have great updates already lined up for the coming months.”

In addition to the characters from the first game, memorable characters such as Anakin Skywalker, Jango Fett and Darth Maul will be making an appearance with a list of new abilities and attack methods.

The app is available now for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 8.

Check out the trailer below.
