Rovio Entertainment has selected the Vancouver-based Sony Pictures Imageworks ("Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs," "Hotel Transylvania") as the animators for the movie based on its immensely popular "Angry Birds" video game franchise.
Rovio's CEO Mikael Hed says: "It was very important for Rovio to find the perfect partner – in style, talent and location – to bring the Angry Birds movie to life, and Sony Pictures Imageworks in Vancouver made that decision easy."
British Columbia premier Christy Clark says: "Angry Birds is a worldwide phenomenon, and its creators want its movie adaptation done right. And to do it right, Rovio and Sony Pictures Imageworks have shown their faith in Vancouver – and that will lead to more opportunities and more jobs. »
