Arrives At Cartoon Network!!

I am – Hercules!!
Actor-writer-director Seth Green has concocted “Robot Chicken: Star Wars,” a 30-minute stop-motion animated Cartoon Network special which mocks scenes from the movie franchise. It premieres tonight on The Cartoon Network. Green made it in collaboration with LucasFilm. He got George Lucas to play himself and Mark Hamill to play Luke Skywalker. Others lending their voices to the project include Conan O'Brien, Robert Smigel, Malcolm McDowell, Hulk Hogan, James Van Der Beek, Donald Faison, Abraham Benrubi and Joey Fatone. Learn how Green and Lucas got together here. Variety says:
... in many respects … more satisfying than the source material's recent chapters. … even in this lightweight diversion resides a lesson highlighted by Cartoon Network's animated "Clone Wars" shorts -- namely, that Lucas' fantasy has frequently sailed the smoothest when he takes a back seat and leaves the starship piloting to someone else. …
The Chicago Tribune says:
Anyone with a deep fondness for George Lucas’ “Star Wars” films should not miss Sunday’s episode of “Robot Chicken”…
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says:
… Even if you are not a total "Star Wars" fanatic, you will laugh hard at this special. I mean, milk- spraying-out-of-your-nostrils hard. …
