From the creators of Robot Chicken
comes Star Wars Robot Chicken that is a parody of George Lucas'
acclaim Star Wars series and actually even got the thumbs up by
Lucasfilms. From dance to song and even George W. Bush as a Jedi,
this parody of the Star Wars franchise is easily one of the most
entertaining things that I have seen in a long time.
For those unaware of the Robot Chicken
series, the creators use a variety of action figures and also
customized action figures to create a variety of skits and parodies
through stop motion video. The Star Wars Robot Chicken episode
follows a 56-page script that took months to create and was actually
shown at Lucas Ranch before its release.
My favourite moment of the DVD is a
Star Wars fan who dresses as a Tantan for a convention and stumbles
upon George Lucas who is actually played by George himself and when
a room full of fans start chasing him, the fan gracefully asks this
Oscar Winning director to climb onboard. Needless to say, it was the
greatest moment of his life!
Whether it's the Admiral Ackbar cereal
commercial or Jar Jar annoying the "hell" out of Darth Vader through
his "Ani" comments, this is definitely one for the Star Wars fans.
It's witty, it's adult and best of all, it's funny from start to
Although the main feature is rather
short (just under 25 minutes), the disc virtually contains a
plethora of highly entertaining extras that are almost as good as
the feature itself. Seth Green (Austin Powers) is joined by a
variety of writers and actors to truly make a unique parody of the
Star Wars franchise that we could happily recommend to all.
