‘Angry Birds Movie’ Sequel in the Works at Rovio

A sequel to “The Angry Birds Movie” is in the works at Finland-based Rovio Entertainment Ltd., maker of the “Angry Birds” mobile game.

“Angry Birds” grossed a solid $347 million worldwide, including $107 million domestically, since its release in May. Rovio CEO Kati Levoranta made the disclosure as part of the company’s earnings report.

“With the excellent performance of our games portfolio and the fantastic movie, the Angry Birds brand is flying high and we are seeing positive EBIT and cash flow development, while fulfilling our mission to create world class entertainment,” Levoranta said. “We currently have several exciting new games and other projects in development, including new IP, and we have started planning the sequel to ‘The Angry Birds Movie.’”

Rovio gave no further details about the sequel. It noted that “The Angry Birds Movie” was released digitally in selected Asian markets and North America on July 29 and went to No. 1 on iTunes, followed by DVD and Blu-ray releases on Aug. 16. The in-home release of the film in other countries and territories continues to roll out in the weeks ahead, with most of Europe seeing the in-home release in September.

The animated movie, distributed by Sony, won the opening weekend in North America with $38.2 million on May 20-22, topping the third weekend of “Captain America: Civil War.”

“Angry Birds,” which carries a $73 million budget, generated an A+ CinemaScore among the core under 25 audience. The film, directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis,  is set on an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – except for Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis), speedy Chuck (Josh Gad) and Bomb (Danny McBride).
