In the space of just a few years, Angry Birds has gone from being a beloved mobile game to an entire universe of entertainment that spans an astonishing range of media. From animation to publishing and even an upcoming feature film, the Angry Birds experience is becoming even more diverse and dynamic.

Featuring interviews with the key players at Rovio - the Finnish company behind the game - Angry Birds: Hatching a Universe tells the make-or-break story of its initial success and the continued innovation that has led to unforgettable collaborations with institutions such as NASA, and the creation of ground-breaking games like Angry Birds Space.
