"You too can join the dark side with Robot Chicken: Star Wars!
[adult swim] have turned the Star Wars universe on its head and given the legendary struggle between intergalactic good vs. evil a unique make-over in this extended episode which is jam-packed with unforgettable moments parodying all 6 films.
Robot Chicken: Star Wars boasts an all-star voice cast including Star Wars creator himself, George Lucas plus Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane, Breckin Meyer, Donald Faison, Hulk Hogan and James Van Der Beek.
The story begins not long ago, in a galaxy not far enough away where we see Emperor Palpatine receive a reverse charge call from the Dark Lord announcing the destruction of the Death Star, watch the droids have trouble getting through airport security and see Admiral Akbar selling out in an advert for his own breakfast cereal. If that wasn't enough to wet your appetite, George Lucas gets saved from a mob of nerds at a Star Wars convention, Luke and the Emperor settle things with a 'yo mama' fight and there's even a new unforgettable addition to the Star Wars franchise with 'Empire on Ice'...and that's just a snippet of the 35 sketches featured!"
"Created in the old-school stop-motion animation style, fast-paced satire are the hallmarks of this eclectic show created by Seth Green and Matt Senreich (with the blessing of George Lucas).
Highlights include the 'Yo Momma' fight between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine's collect call from Darth Vader, George Lucas at a Star Wars Convention and the grand finale of the Empire on Ice!
You might be wondering where you have heard this movie before. 'Robot Chicken Star Wars' gets a mention at the end of Family Guys 'Blue Harvest' by Chris (voiced by Seth Green)."
