Netflix continues to have a leg up on its streaming competition in terms of original content. The platform continues to pump out original films, shows, and documentaries, seemingly on a weekly basis. As first reported The Wrap, Netflix is developing a new animated series based on the wildly popular Angry Birds franchise.
Angry Birds: Summer Madness will reportedly release 40 episodes in early 2021. Additionally, each episode will feature a runtime of roughly 11 minutes. The streaming service released an official logline along with the initial report.
“Angry Birds: Summer Madness sees much-loved birds Red, Bomb and Chuck, as well as a cast of brand new feathered friends, as tween birds at summer camp under the questionable guidance of their counselor Mighty Eagle. Explosive antics, improbable pranks and crazy summertime adventures see the birds pushing boundaries and breaking all the rules while fending off the brash and obnoxious Pigs on the other side of the lake, who seem hell-bent on causing as much mayhem as possible!”
Angry Birds began as an addictive puzzle video game app released by Rovio in 2009. Over the last several years, the franchise spawned feature-length films The Angry Birds Movie and its sequel The Angry Birds Movie 2. The films featured a stellar voice cast including Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Kate McKinnon, Bill Hader, and Peter Dinklage. Moreover, the films have grossed over $507 million worldwide.
