Star Wars.
The most revered franchise in movie history. $141.8 quadrillion worldwide gross. Seven billion fans, spanning the entire globe. The pinnacle of cinema.

Robot Chicken.
A rinky-dink cable show where toys crash into each other and fall down. College students sometimes glance at it in between keg stands and laugh beer through their noses.

Together at last!
Witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational half-hour special, as the nerds behind Adult Swim's stop-motion trainwreck thoroughly violate the Star Wars universe! Wow. If someone wasn't fired for this, it's like a freaking miracle.

"...a rapid-fire barrage of gags that includes George Lucas and Mark Hamill among its expansive vocal cast.  Brian Lowry, Variety

Editor's Note
The warped minds at Adult Swim's ROBOT CHICKEN take their demented sensibility to the holy grail of sci-fi epics, STAR WARS, in this hilarious special. Jaws will drop as Luke Skywalker and Emperor Palpatine trade "yo mama" jokes, George W. Bush and Abraham Lincoln battle it out with lightsabers, and Darth Vader sobs on the telephone. But the show really hits its stride when riffing on the franchise's supporting characters, including bug-eyed Admiral Akbar (promoting a delicious breakfast cereal), the rowdy barflies at the Mos Eisley Cantina (a couple of architects out for a tragic after-work drink), and of course Jar Jar Binks (thank you). As usual, a cast of celebrities lend their voices to the animated antics--including Hulk Hogan, Conan O'Brien, and James Van Der Beek--with even George Lucas getting in on the action for his flannel-clad counterpart.

Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "The hit rate is strong, particularly when focusing on more random members of the series..." 09/01/2008 p.163

Variety 9 of 10
Self-proclaimed "Star Wars" geeks, the producers of "Robot Chicken" deliver a big wet kiss to the film series' fans (including those who yanked out hair follicles throughout the second trilogy) with this clever animated special -- a rapid-fire barrage of gags that includes George Lucas and Mark Hamill among its expansive vocal cast. Combined with an upcoming "Family Guy" that will also parody Lucas' space odyssey, this spoofery adds to a growing cottage industry of tie-ins that, in many respects, are more satisfying than the source material's recent chapters...The major disclaimer here is that anybody who isn't well-versed in "Star Wars" mythology will find themselves scratching their heads, but those who can quote dialogue like "I have a bad feeling about this" will find plenty to smile about -- and a few places to laugh out loud...Inasmuch as Lucas has often seemed humorless about "Star Wars'" creative shortcomings under his stewardship, it's also nice to see the filmmaker/mogul join in the fun. Yet even in this lightweight diversion resides a lesson highlighted by Cartoon Network's animated "Clone Wars" shorts -- namely, that Lucas' fantasy has frequently sailed the smoothest when he takes a back seat and leaves the starship piloting to someone else. - Brian Lowry
