Lucas OK’s STAR WARS comedy from ROBOT CHICKEN team


Spawned from the success, both with fans and critics, of the Star Wars-themed Robot Chicken episodes comes word that Lucas is giving the go-ahead for the team behind the successful Cartoon Network show to help create a new animated series.  Here’s what actor/mind behind Robot Chicken Seth Green had to say about the new show:

The Star Wars universe is so dense and rich; it’s crazy to think that there aren’t normal, mundane everyday problems in a world so well-defined. And it’s even crazier to think of what those problems might be, since it’s all set in a galaxy far, far away.  What do these characters do when they’re not overthrowing Empires?

I really don’t know what to think about this.  I think it is a very good sign that Lucas and his people are teaming with other creators who have produced some really cool stuff utilizing the Star Wars universe.  It would be lame if they just decided to do their own comedy show and pretty much rip off the jokes made by others.  I guess time will tell.  No word yet on what network the show will be on.
