Robot Chicken Strikes Back

Robot Chicken, the animated series created by Seth Green, is one of the funniest cartoons on television. Some sketches on the Adult Swim show rival Family Guy for incomprehensible brilliance.

The best episode is the Robot Chicken: Star Wars parody special. So we’re well excited that Green has announced plans for a sequel.

Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II is a go. The cable network is moving ahead with a sequel that will premiere Nov. 16.

Many members of the voice cast from the first special, including original Star Wars actors Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams — reprising their roles as Princess Leia and Lando Calrissian, respectively — are back. Also returning are Seth MacFarlane as Emperor Palpatine, Conan O’Brien as Zuckuss, Breckin Meyer as Admiral Ackbar and Boba Fett, and Ahmed Best as Jar Jar Binks. As for the creative direction in the sequel, “we decided to focus on the bounty hunters a bit and explore their stories,” “Robot Chicken” co-creator Matt Senreich said. “It’s a geek-fest for us all.”
