Trivia

The original song "Lapti Nek" (played by the infamous Cantina Band from Star Wars VI) could not be located for use in the Robot Chicken Star Wars III. Composer and Songwriter Shawn Patterson was asked to recreate the entire original song for the show. Vocalist Sammy Allen ("Everything Is Awesome" from The Lego Movie) sang the alien language vocals. The final version was met with approval from George Lucas. See more »

Easily the best one in the series....

Seth Green and Chris McKay started Robot Chicken back in 2005 and have been growing ever since. If you've never seen it, I recommend you check it out. It's stop-motion animation at it's crudest and most often funniest.

I don't really need to go over plot details or tell you guys the story, it's Robot Chicken for crap's sake. They take action figures and put them in the craziest positions and make them say the most outlandish things. Some segments last as long as three or four minutes, others a mere 10 seconds. The frenzied style in which Seth and Chris shoot these mini-videos is part of what makes Robot Chicken fun. They can tell a joke, get a laugh and then quick-cut to a completely different scene with different results.

All of them are silly and sophomoric, but damned if they're not also hilarious. Episode I is more thrown together than Episodes II and III, because it doesn't have a "wraparound" story. I liked having that central "theme" in Episodes II and III, because it gave us a nice running gag that we could keep coming back to. Episode II had the Emperor putting an ad in the penny saver for hiring a hit-man and Episode III was the Emperor looking back on his life and wondering how he came to be in the situation he was in. There's a brilliant part in Episode III that has the Emperor trying to use the elevator and his comment is priceless when he finds the elevator full of whatever the hell Admiral Ackbar is and his ride up the escalator is even more funny.

Seth and Chris even go above and beyond by getting some of the original participants of Star Wars to lend their voices to their parody. It helps if you've seen all the movies, but it's not necessary. You'll certainly get a bigger kick out of knowing what they're parodying. One of the only thing that bugged me about the series is how it jumps from making fun of Phantom Menace and then back again to Return of the Jedi. At least when Family Guy parodied Return of the Jedi, it stayed on Return of the Jedi. They didn't bounce back and forth, I only wish Robot Chicken used that same formula, but I still laughed all the same. More reviews at www.soveryterry.com Final Grade: B+ (for all three episodes)
