Star Wars purists, turn away now. Rovio has announced that the next incarnation of its all-conquering Angry Birds series, due for release on November 8, will be Star Wars-themed.

Angry Birds Star Wars will see those chirpy egg collectors transform into colourful avian versions of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo to do battle with Darth Vader across Tatooine and various other locations.

Even John Williams's score has been given a cutesy adaptation. Is nothing sacred? No. Nothing.
