Prime Video and Amazon Kids+ have partnered with Rovio to develop a new Angry Birds series.
The show – titled Angry Birds Mystery Island – comes from Futurama writer Eric Rogers and animation studio Titmouse.
Angry Birds Mystery Island introduces three new Hatchling characters – Mia, Rosie and Buddy – and a foreign-exchange piglet named Hamylton. The group are mistakenly catapulted onto an uncharted island and, in order to make it back home, they need to unlock the mysteries of the island together.

Mystery Island is the first Angry Birds series created with Amazon and will be available exclusively through Prime Video and Amazon Kids+.
