"Inside Robot Chicken: Star Wars"

Posted By Mike on May 15, 2007

From Starwars.com:

"When Adult Swim's "Robot Chicken" decides to jump to Hyperspace with the upcoming release of Robot Chicken: Star Wars fans can look forward to seeing their favorite characters and movie moments satirized and tweaked as the show's creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich only know how.

The creative duo first met when Senreich, who was still an editor at ToyFare magazine, asked Green for an interview about his custom-made dolls he made for the cast of his show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." "The next thing you know we were buddy-buddy sending each other toys back and forth through the mail that we couldn't find," Senreich says. "And it was right around the time all the Star Wars prequels were coming out. The toy market was hitting big and we were geeking out."

The two forged a strong friendship and ended up brainstorming the idea of creating a TV show that would feature various action figures in comedic situations. Soon after "Robot Chicken" was hatched. Satirizing everything from G.I. Joe to Stretch Armstrong, the show uses impressive custom-built sets and special toy sculpts. However, toys aren't the only targets; celebs and political figures such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ryan Seacrest and Fidel Castro are often thrown in for a laugh. And while the show likes to parody popular franchises, both Senreich and Green have no intention of mocking any fan base. In fact, the two are avid movie and comic book fans, of Star Wars in particular.

Robot Chicken: Star Wars, which premieres on June 17, 2007 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, combines action figures in humorous situations, which Green and Senreich hope the fans enjoy. "We wanted to turn the Star Wars universe on its side and try to figure out a new take on it." Senreich says. "But we also try to make jokes that would appeal to people even if they'd never seen Star Wars."
