Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III Heads Home for the Holiday (+ Stills)
We’ve got 8 stills from the upcoming Adult Swim special hour-long event: Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III. The episode will debut on Sunday, December 19, 2010, on Cartoon Network.
The hour-long special features the vocal talents of Zac Efron (Anakin Skywalker), Rachael Leigh Cook (Padmé), Donald Glover (Mace Windu) and Mike Henry (Wedge Antilles), with Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams and Ahmed Best reprising their famous roles as C-3PO, Lando Calrissian and the infamous Jar Jar Binks.
Yes, Jar Jar Binks is back. Let’s hope he gets killed once and for all. Or, even better, kill Jar Jar Binks about twenty times and bring him back each time for another unmerciful death as if it were a Wu Tang Clan torture intermission (check out the “Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers” and you’ll know what I’m taking about). Anything less and the viewers will have to incite a whole new separatist rebellion.
About Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III
Control of the Star Wars franchise has fallen back into the hands of the toy-obsessed, madcap parody junkies at the Emmy-winning Robot Chicken. That’s right, it’s Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III, a retelling of the sci-fi saga, from Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi, through the eyes of four key characters, offering hilarious insights into what happened just off screen. See Chewbacca (Seth Green) introduce Han Solo to his family; the Emperor (Seth MacFarlane) struggle with the administrative headaches of running a ruthless, intergalactic regime, with no one to count on but his bungling right-hand man Darth Vader (Abe Benrubi). Watch Gary the Stormtrooper (Donald Faison) take his first joy ride on a speederbike, while Boba Fett (Breckin Meyer) settles into his new digs, inside the belly of the Sarlacc monster.
