Watch Luke and Leia in Angry Birds: Star Wars First Gameplay Trailer

The two heroes are battling pigs masquerading as Stormtroopers and AT-ATs

The development team at Rovio shows gamers the first glimpse of gameplay for the upcoming Angry Birds: Star Wars, with a trailer that focuses on Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia as they will appear in the spin-off from the very popular series.

The short clip shows the two heroes of the movie series as birds who proceed to battle pigs that take the forms of AT-AT walkers and Stormtroopers.

The soundtrack is also unmistakably drawn from the Star Wars series and features the song from the Cantina sequence.

The full Angry Birds: Star Wars will include more heroes and villains from the franchise but will otherwise stick close to the gameplay mechanics of the original game.

Angry Birds: Star Wars will be launched on November 8 and fans can get it on Windows 8 powered PCs through the OS store, on iOS and Android device and on the Kindle tablet from Amazon.
