"Cute and bubbly!" "If not me, then who?" These feathers are made for shining and that's just what they'll do. Don't try to steal my limelight but i'm happy to share the stage with you. If you enjoy popping pigs, that is.

Stella, the Pink Bird is a bird that first appears in the Angry Birds Seasons episode Back to School, released on August 16. She is the second to be a playable female, after the White Bird (third if one counts Jewel from Angry Birds Rio), and the first new playable bird to be female that wasn't part of the original Flock (the next is Silver).
- Name: Stella
- Known Aliases: Pink Bird, Bubble Bird
- Group Affiliation: The Flock
- Best Friends: Luca, Poppy, Willow, Dahlia, Gale (Former)
- Voiced By: Heljä Heikkinen, Kate McKinnon (The Angry Birds Movie)
Stella is a pink round bird with three pink plume feathers on top of her head, blue eyes with eyelashes and a short yellow beak. The color of her breast is light pink and has three black feathers at her back.
In the film version, Stella appears as a pink anthropomorphic Galah and is identical to her game counterpart but with minor changes. Her pink feathers on top of her head are now five instead of three and the tip of her feather top are dark pink. She also has a long orange feet and has pink arms similar to Red's (though she is surprisingly taller).
As Stella likes to blows bubbles, she may be a young member of The Flock. She shows signs of being childish, but also very cunning, as she quickly thwarts the pigs' plans before they can launch them. She gets enraged easily, but is very happy when not. It was revealed in the Angry Birds Hatching a Universe and other media that she is a teenager. She is sometimes stubborn and unruly, and hates being told what to do.
In Angry Birds Stella and Angry Birds Stella (Animated Series), she is much older, around the age of a teenager. She is shown to have a extremely caring nature, and can instantly forgive anyone for their past wrongs to her. She tries her best to keep other birds happy and stays an optimist. Her heart is loyal and will fight for her friends and even at times, her enemies.
From the Angry Birds Official Website:
Stella's the star of the show and the bird all the others look up to. She may look cute and cuddly, but don't be fooled - if you push her too far, she'll soon reveal her blazing-hot temper! that's just how she rolls, sweet on the outside, and fierce on the inside.
She's a keen adventurer and is always on the look out for fun, which emans she can get borde and grumpy if there's nothing to do. She's also extremely ambitious, and loves taking on tough challenges - but this means that she bites off more than she can chew...
She's an amazing parkour athlete - cheetah fast and awesomely acrobatic.
In the movie version, Stella has many friends in Bird Island including Bomb as seen in the international theatrical trailer which she tries to surprise Bomb along with her friends in his birthday but due to Bomb's personality for being blown when he got shocked and surprised he exploded her house as he apologizes to her and her friends for the accident he made. Stella also speaks in a strong valley girl accent.
Main article: Angry Birds Seasons
Stella first made her debut in Angry Birds Seasons' Back to School. She then joins the rest of the Flock to assist them in preventing the pigs from once again stealing the eggs. She later helps them recover the eggs in Haunted Hogs and Winter Wonderham, now appearing in many levels, but not all.
This area is in need of expansion
Stella appears to be a mother figure to Luca. She forces him to take baths and keeps him away from Gale, as Stella thinks she is dangerous. Luca also cares about Stella, as when she gains a phobia of flying, Luca tricks her into using her hangglider to save him. Stella forgets her phobia and jumps off the tree with her hangglider to save Luca, showing that she would do anything for his safety.
Poppy is one of Stella's best friends. While they fight often they clearly care for each other. Stella loves to jam with Poppy and her other friends, but she gets annoyed when Poppy gets a little too carried away while playing the drums. Poppy and Stella are seen laughing with each other in promo pictures for the game, showing their enjoyment of each other's company.
Stella and Willow are known to live on Bird Island before the pigs invaded the island, but not much is known about them before their departure to Golden Island.
Stella and Willow are good friends and when Stella is scared of flying Willow is the first to come up with a plan to help her feel better. Willow enjoy's Stella's company and lets her paint alongside her in Own The Sky.
Stella and Dahlia are good friends, but Dahlia often scolds Stella for her actions. Dahlia expects no nonsense out of Stella and is annoyed when she interrupts her during Dahlia's expirements. Nonetheless Dahlia looks to Stella as a daughter figure and partakes in helping her overcome her fear of flight.
Stella used to be best friends with Gale. In the Angry Birds Stella gameplay trailer, a photograph is seen with both Stella and Gale. Unfortunately, the two went separate ways when Gale discovered a crown that put her in command of the pigs. She jumps into an active volcano in order to save Gale from death; and is heartbroken with the loss of her.
When Gale is found alive Stella immediately welcomes her back, forgiving her for leaving the group for the fame from the pigs. She looks after and cares for Gale until she gets better. They then play the song from Rock On! and Gale sings along, showing that they have history of jamming together. Stella is disappointed when Gale instantly goes back to her old ways. In You Asked for It, Stella and Gale reconciled their friendship when she turned her into gold with the golden egg.
Stella, at first, dislikes the minion pigs due to them destroying the vegetation in Golden Island for Gale. She beats many of them in defense.
Although Stella has had rocky history with the pigs, because of her caring nature she lets some pigs sleep in her house. The pigs take advantage and she gets annoyed, but still stands up for them even when the rest of her friends protest.
Due to Stella being a teenager she doesn't like being told what to do, and since Red is the leader, since it's his job to be the boss.Although, they can get along sometimes, because in Stella POP they seem to be having fun
Stella is physically weak against all material, as flinging her three times cannot shatter a single Wood block when shot consecutively.
As her second ability, Stella is more useful. She can ricochet off of 1 surface and then crash to the next, causing a small explosion.
Like the Black Bird, the Orange Bird, and the Ice Bird, Stella's ability is activated when the screen is tapped, or after a couple of seconds after striking an object. When activated, Stella will surround herself in a bubble, which will expand after a few seconds. Any blocks or pigs within the bubble's range will trapped in either pink, green, or blue bubbles. All of the bubbles will then rise towards the sky. After a few seconds, the bubbles will pop, sending everything that was caught crashing down. The bubbles cannot protect any blocks or pigs they capture.
However, the bubble has a small range. The bubble also cannot lift blocks that are secured in a structure, and thus, Stella will not be effective against heavily fortified structures. The bubble also cannot enclose and trap items.
Stella now has the ability to ricochet off a surface and crash into another. The second bounce causes a mini-explosion, so it is suggested Stella ricochet off a weaker surface and then crash into a stronger, more fortified one.
Stella is seen using martial arts to beat up pigs in mid-air when it was slingshot and it was different than both her original counterpart and the Stella series.

Advantages and Disadvantages
Pink Bird has less power than the Red Bird, aside when using her ability. She cannot destroy neither glass, wood, or stone without flinging her several times. Although she will damage glass, she is not good against any three unless her ability is used. Her bubbles can easily lift objects unless they are under several heavy bricks, like wood or stone. If that occurs, then most likely nothing will change in the level.
Stella's mini-explosion on her second impact makes her a very useful character. However, once made impact without using her ability she is weak. It is suggested the first structure she bounces off of is a weak unsupported structure or an explosive object, as her first bounce is not as affective as her second impact.

|Abilities||Shoots 3 bubbles in quick succession|
|First Appearance||Angry Birds Transformers|
|Species||Galah Robot Bird|
Don't let her pink colour scheme distract you - Arcee is a fearsome warrior and an excellent shot. She leaves it to the clumsy Deceptihogs to blast away wildly - her skill is picking out the exact block that will bring a tower down. And if she happens to look good on the battlefield that's just a bonus! After all, not everyone can pull off pink combat armour. Believe me, I've tried!
Arcee has always been a fierce fighter, and teaming up with Stella has just added to her headstrong, driven nature.
Every TRANSFORMERS character has their reason for battling the EggBots, but Arcee is thinking about the bigger picture... She figures that if the EggBots succeed in turning Piggy Island into metal they'll be free to turn their attention to other islands, and that's not happening on her watch!
Arcee's weapon is designed to bring down piggy towers with carefully placed precision shots. Blocks that she hits are shoved backwards, meaning she can easily bring down towers that other characters struggle with.
The downside is that her shots do very little damage to armored enemies, so anything that can't be knocked down will give her trouble. Best to use her high speed to outrun danger!

Remember how the EggBots created Nemesis Prime to battle the TRANSFORMERS characters but he rebelled against them? Turns out EggBots don't learn too well because they tried it again!
Designed to be a sinister version of Arcee, the only flaw in the EggBot's plan is that they're idiots. Stella and Arcee are as heroic as Red and Optimus Prime, so of course Airachnid immediately joined the battle to save Piggy Island!
Airachnid may have joined the Autobird / Deceptihog alliance, but she still has a little of the EggBot's mischievous personality. Add that to her stealth skills and creepy colour scheme and you've got one scary warrior! Brr!
Airachnid roams Piggy Island as a lone warrior, causing trouble for the EggBots by knocking down towers, poking pigs and searching for the Eggspark. But what will she do if she finds it?
Airachnid's weapon follows the same principles as Arcee's, just more extreme! Bring down towers by knocking away the right blocks, but don't expect to destroy tough enemies.
Instead, use Airachnid's speed to transform, not only out-running threats, but also causing enemies to shoot too far ahead. Once they've fired at where they expect her to be, transform to slow down and watch the shots fly by!
(Even though Airachnid is stared by Stella, she is actually a Deceptihog)

- In the trailer, Stella is shown to use a bubble wand to produce the bubbles, however this wand is nowhere in the game itself.
- In the Angry Birds: Hatching a Universe book, it is revealed Stella went through many changes in development, she was once considered having a blue color. She also resembled many anime characters and the Powerpuff Girls, as said in the book.
- Stella's plush also reveals she once was a much more temperate shade of pink, while currently she is a light shade of pink.
- Stella is the first bird to be confirmed female at her release. Although Matilda is female, she was never actually confirmed to be when the game was released.
- Stella has the most sprite changes/costumes. Her prototype plush shows a rather different sprite (see image gallery). Her sprite in Angry Birds Seasons was different from the prototype. Afterwards, in her release in Angry Birds Original she had a few minor adjustments. In Angry Birds Rio, her sprite was exclusively changed just for the "Rio 2" segment. In Angry Birds Stella, her sprite was changed to a much more cartoon-ish look. In Stella Toons her sprite is different from her actual Angry Birds Animation style. Lastly, there are more than 9 different designs for her in the Angry Birds: Hatching a Universe book.
- Stella's birthday is on January 17th.
- Stella is the first Angry Bird to sport an actual eye color other than black (light blue).
- Stella, along with Matilda and Hal, are the only three birds that don't have a Space counterpart.
- The name "Stella" means "star". This may be a clue to her own series, the Angry Birds Stella series, as she stars or she is the main character of the said series, the "star" translation is revealed in the Angry Birds Stella Interactive Annual 2015.
- She is one of the only bird to have a consistent soundtrack. It can be heard though the beginning of the episode The Storm, A Fork In A Friendship and Pop The Top in Angry Birds POP!. Her soundtrack can be heard here and another version of the soundtrack can be heard here .
- Stella in The Angry Birds Movie uses her Pink Flash ability from the Angry Birds: Stella Slingshot. She does not have her bubble wand ability.
