From another galaxy, also not far enough away comes the follow-up to the hugely successful Robot Chicken: Star Wars! Featuring all new sketches which parody the Star Wars series originally created by George Lucas including Princess Leia hilariously mocking Luke Skywalker for missing Ben Kenobi, whom he met the day before, while her entire family and planet has been destroyed and the Ewoks being killed by falling debris of the second exploding Death Star! Star Wars will probably never be the same agin!

The amazing thing about Robot Chicken is that the writers keep coming up with material which hasn’t been covered before. This is especially true with their Star Wars Episode 2. Even though the films have been around for 3 decades, the sketches which they present here are so fresh. The mood, style, sounds and overall feel of each scene is one of authenticity; the details are so accurate, right down to the theme music.

Ever wondered what Luke Skywalker might have thought when Darth Vader offers him a chance to join the dark side? Well, Robot Chicken’s writers certainly wondered, they came up with a wonderful sketch where Luke imagines all the things that could happen if he and Darth were to have a father/son relationship; going fishing together, learning to ride and even entering a father/son breakdancing competition and bust some moves on the dancefloor!

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Robot Chicken as this is the third time I’ve featured the show on this site and Star Wars Episode 2 has only strengthened my enthusiasm for the show. There’s another great sketch, right at the beginning where my favourite character, the Nerd (of course!) fantasies about what would be the greaest scene in the history of everything and it involves Princess Leia tearing off her clothes and seduces Boba Fett after he massacres the Ewoks. The Ewoks don’t fare to well in the Robot Chicken universe!
