Rovio is reportedly working on an Angry Birds – Star Wars tie-up game, which will bring with it a bunch of Angry Birds Star Wars toys.

The company posted a teaser image on Tumblr on Friday, featuring one of its irate winged beasts wearing Jedi robes and holding a lightsaber.

There's no news yet on what format the game will take but Luke Skywalker will be cast as Red Bird in this set-up, says Fast Company.

A bunch of merchandise is set to hit shelves at a special event at Toys 'R' Us in New York's Times Square on Monday morning, including action figures and a re-imagined version of the board game Jenga.

"As casual games grow as a category and mobile devices grow as an interface, it's going to become moreimportant for us in the future,” says Paul Southern, vice president of licensing and consumer products marketing at Lucasfilm.

"Our partnership with Rovio helped us to understand a little bit more about how they achieved that success."

Initially, the Angry Birds Star Wars game was set to arrive on October 28.
