The Angry Birds Have (Boring) Names Now


One of the inevitabilities of our favorite frustrated fowl is that they would have to become more individualized when adapted into more storybook formats. Still, I can’t help but be disappointed.

Red, Bomb and the Blues are fine…descriptive and non-contradictory. But Matilda? Chuck? Terence?

Considering the birds were created in Scandinavia Finland (which is commonly mistaken for Scandinavia but isn’t), I was hoping for Katya, Oystein and Fjurkkelbjerggenhooferloogin. I guess I was just a dreamer.

The new cartoon, featuring the new names, debuts March 17th, which is also St. Patrick’s Day, and super appropriate, since it’s a day when green gluttons behave the most badly. Video trailer after the jump.
