"Robot Chicken" Takes on "Star Wars"

"Robot Chicken" Takes on "Star Wars"

George Lucas usually isn't one for letting people make fun of his beloved Star Wars franchise, but this Sunday marks an exception. The guys of "Robot Chicken," the Adult Swim show that uses stop-motion animation and action figures to poke fun at pop culture, convinced Lucas to lend his material (and his voice) to a special "Robot Chicken" take on Star Wars.

Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamill is among the other celebrities lending their voices to the special, which will air at the top of every hour from 10 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday. USA Today has the details on how Lucas came to give the special his blessing, while MTV talked with creator Seth Green about making sure he and "Family Guy" (which will do its own take on Star Wars in the fall) weren't making fun of the same things.

I'm not sure if I'm a big enough Star Wars geek to get all the jokes, but I'll definitely give it a shot. Of the details that have come out about the episode so far, I'm most excited for the Ice Capades send-up called Emperor on Ice. To watch a trailer for the special,

It was good, i didnt like that they used clips i had already seen on previous robot chickens, like the emperor/vader phone call and Admiral Akbars cereal, my favorite part was the two giant asteroid monsters ordering pizza

catarina- After George saw their segment with Palpatine getting the call from Darth Vader about the Death Star, he fell in love and asked them to do the whole project.
