This Angry Bird Balloon in the 89th edition of the Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade is part of the promotion for The Angry Birds Movie which is scheduled to be released in summer 2016 on May 20.
Angry Birds is known to over 3 billion fans as the hero of the blockbuster “Angry Birds” mobile game franchise by Rovio Entertainment.
“Angry Birds is a worldwide phenomenon and we are thrilled to have Red join the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon line-up this year, taking his place among some of the world’s most popular and recognizable characters,” said Amy Kule, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “With his trademark angry look, but lovable personality, Red will protect his precious egg as he takes flight down the streets of Manhattan and into the hearts of millions of spectators lining the Parade route and tens of millions more watching from homes across the country.”
“We’re delighted to confirm our participation in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade,” said Gaetano Mastropasqua, President of Americas, Rovio Entertainment. “The partnership kick-starts the promotional campaign for the highly anticipated Angry Birds movie and underpins our long-term commitment to Angry Birds, a world leading entertainment franchise with gaming at its heart.”
