I am a fan of Robot chicken. My wife considers each 15 minute show a waste of 15 minutes that she will never get back. But I am a guy and love the toys and the spoofs that are being created.
Apparently George Lucas and Mark Hamill are fans of the show as well. Robot Chicken was created by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich. They take old toys and dolls and clay and make stop motion skits. Usually they involve some of our well known and best loved icons form the 70s and 80s.
There was a great skit about Darth Vader calling Emperor Palpatine about the destruction of the Death Star. This skit caught George Lucas’ eye and he is going to work with the guys for a 30 minute Star Wars spoof episode. Mark Hamill will be voicing Luke Skywalker.
The show will air at 10:00pm on June 17th on Cartoon Network. You can reaed more about the show and Lucas’ involvement on Yahoo News.
