In an attempt to give new life to its Angry Birds line, Rovio announced a deal with Lego to make an Angry Birds line of building blocks.

According to Reuters, Rovio announced the deal to “revive its ailing licensing business based on the popular mobile game.” The news org reports that Rovio’s earnings fell 73 percent last year due to a drop in licensing on Angry Birds-related merchandise.

The Lego building blocks will be out with the Angry Birds movie in 2016. The film, in 3D, looks promising with SNL alums and funny people Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph, and Game of Throne‘s Peter Dinklage lending voice talents.
