New Angry Birds Star Wars teaser features the Millennium Falcon

Star Wars is popular — that's about as simple as you could put it. So it's no wonder that companies and brands are licensing the movie franchise in order to boost sales. Microsoft did it with their Xbox 360 and Motorola with their DROID 2. Rovio has now joined in on the fun and released another teaser trailer for Angry Birds Star Wars that will surely whet your appetite.

The teaser features a short snippet from A New Hope where Han Solo explains to Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi that his Millennium Falcon "made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs." Then, we see an Angry Birds version of the Millenium Falcon which looks to be having a little trouble getting up to light speed, but with the help of a familiar slingshot, the ship eventually gets there.

Obviously, George Lucas failed to realize that a parsec is actually a unit of distance and not time (equal to 3.26 light years or approximately 19.2 trillion miles). We're not sure if Rovio noticed Lucas' mistake, but they seemed to just run with it anyway. Sadly, the teaser trailer is all the info we have so far.

However, it could mean the Millennium Falcon will play a critical role in the gameplay, and the slingshot on the back of the ship may suggest that we could soon find ourselves launching angry birds off of the ship's deck, but we'll mostly just have to wait until the game's release on November 8 to find out.
