Finnish game maker Rovio made a big bet on The Angry Birds Movie, and it seems to have paid off.
“We have started planning the sequel to The Angry Birds Movie,” Rovio chief executive Kati Levoranta said in a press release earlier this week. No other details were offered by the company.
The Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly-directed film has earned $347 million globally since its release last spring, making it the fifth-highest worldwide-grossing animated feature in 2016 to date. Rovio Entertainment reported that even before the profits from the film had been accounted for, the company was profitable in the first half of 2016 with 76.4 million Euro in revenue during that period.
