Angry Birds Mystery Island introduces three new Hatchling characters – “Mia”, “Rosie” and “Buddy” – as well as a FX piggy named “Hamylton”.

“We’re excited to partner with Amazon to add a new chapter to the Hatchlings’ story in Angry Birds Mystery Island,” commented Hanna Valkeapää-Nokkala, Head of Brand Licensing at Rovio. “I’m sure fans of the Hatchlings will be eager to see them in their own series, and this is the first time they’ve spoken.”
“Working with such a dream team and cast has been the highlight of my career. Together, we’re curating a series filled with comedy, emotion, and binge-worthy mysteries, filled with laughable moments,” said showrunner and head writer and executive producer Eric Rogers said.
“It’s exciting to expand the world of Angry Birds with adorable new characters and a multi-layered story that speaks equally to kids and their hearts,” said Veronica Pickett, Head of Original Series for Amazon Kids+. “
“Angry Birds have captivated people of all ages and become a global phenomenon with the debut of their first game, and their cultural influence has remained steadfast,” said Melissa, head of animation at Amazon Studios. Wolfe said. “We’re excited about the opportunity to expand the world of the Hatchlings into a family series so our global customers can enjoy even more stories about these beloved birds.”
Titmouse’s Chris Prynoski (The Legend of Vox Machina), Shannon Prynoski (Fairfax), Antonio Canobbio (Arlo the Crocodile Boy) and Ben Kalina (Harriet the Spy) will executive produce alongside showrunner Eric Rogers .
