South American studio collective Los Amigos produces first season of 1-minute episodes featuring the young Angry Birds flock - Red, Bomb, Chuck, Stella and Silver – inspired by the ‘Angry Birds Dream Blast’ mobile game.
Rovio Entertainment has released the first season of Angry Birds Bubble Trouble, a bite-sized 3D-animated series where the young Angry Birds flock – Red, Bomb, Chuck, Stella and Silver – let their imaginations “go wild” in their bubble garden. They play games and solve problems together, while getting into all kinds of trouble.
Season 1 (20 x 1-minute episodes) has premiered exclusively on Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, with wider distribution planned at a later date.
Inspired by the world of the Angry Birds Dream Blast mobile game, the series has been produced in partnership with South American collective Los Amigos, made up of Hype (Brazil), PunkRobot (Chile) and Red Animation Studios (Peru).
According to Rovio Entertainment CMO, Ville Heijari, “The production team have done a fantastic job in creating a world that’s playful, lighthearted and in keeping with the Angry Birds Dream Blast universe. We’re delighted to reveal this series with Amazon, but to make this all happen I want to give a particular shout-out to the Los Amigos team, who were able to deliver despite these challenging last few months of lockdown.”
“Kids around the world love playing Angry Birds games, and we’re excited to bring the Angry Birds Bubble Trouble series to our Amazon FreeTime Unlimited customers,” said Dan Nord, director, Amazon Kids & Family. “FreeTime Unlimited gives kids access to premium books, shows, movies, and games that kids love alongside customizable parental controls that give parents peace of mind. We can’t wait for families to watch Red and friends in all new adventures with Amazon FreeTime Unlimited on iOS, Android, and FireOS.”
This latest release continues Rovio’s strategy of delivering original content, both through distribution deals and via its own Angry Birds YouTube channel, which has racked up over 4 million subscribers and 5 billion content views to date. Aside from the series’ release on Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, Rovio Entertainment’s animated and video content has reached a wide audience on a host of streaming services including Netflix, where a long-form series, Angry Birds: Summer Madness, is planned for release in 2021.
