Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Robot Chicken's finest half hour is more savvy than Spaceballs, more inside than Family Guy: Blue Harvest, and funnier, even, than The Star Wars Holiday Special. This Very Special Episode of Comedy Central's stop-motion animated series parodies and goofs on all things Star Wars, from a disgruntled Empire janitor to an ad for Admiral Ackbar Cereal ("Your tongues can't repel flavor of that magnitude"). Twenty three minutes goes by like the jump to hyperspace with such priceless bits as the collect phone call to Emperor Palpatine from Darth Vadar to inform him of the Death Star's destruction, awkward morning-after pillow talk between Luke and Leia ("That was so wrong"), and George Bush's newfound Jedi powers. Co-creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich and company immerse viewers in the Robot Chicken universe with generous bonus features, including storyboarded deleted scenes (with self-deprecating commentary), behind the scenes footage of animation meetings, and alternate audio takes. Good sport George Lucas, who gave his blessing to this episode, boldly goes where William Shatner went before by voicing himself in a Star Wars convention sketch that concludes with a Lucas-worshiping geek telling his son that meeting his idol was the best day of his life. What about his son's birth? "Not even close," dad replies. But you don't have to have that kind of devotion to Star Wars to be amused by this weather forecast for Cloud City: "Cloudy, followed by clouds." --Donald Liebenson.

Product Description

This DVD includes the animated special plus 60 minutes of special features. Vocal talent is provided by George Lucas, Conan O'Brien, Seth MacFarlane, Hulk Hogan, James Van Der Beek, Donald Faison, Brecklin Meyer, and Joey Fatone.

Format:DVD
I watched this DVD today and laughed as much or more as the first time I saw this show on Adult Swim. This DVD has a number of features to recommend it:
- Two hours of extra features, including deleted scenes, commentary, animation meeting, panel presentations, alternate audio and more.
- Terrific presentation of the original show. It even sounds as though the music to dialogue level has been adjusted on the "Empire On Ice" sketch so that the hilarious lyrics to the songs are much more audible and clear than they were when originally shown on TV.

At less than $10, this DVD is absolutely worth it. A great entertainment value for the price. Even the blurbs on the back of the DVD case are entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars + Robot Chicken = Hilarious fun July 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Anyone who's watched Robot Chicken knows that creator Seth Green and his crew are big time Star Wars geeks, which makes this marriage of Star Wars and Robot Chicken all the more sensible. Robot Chicken: Star Wars is a half-hour special of shorts and skits that pay wonderful, hilarious homage to the phenomenon that is Star Wars, by poking fun at characters and memorable scenes from entire series. The visual gags and blink-and-you'll-miss-them moments are incredibly funny, and the voice talent assembled (including Green, Seth MacFarlane, Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamil, Ahmed "Jar-Jar Binks" Best, Donald Faison, Hulk Hogan, Malcolm McDowell, Joey Fatone, Breckin Meyer, Conan O'Brien, James Van Der Beek, and even George Lucas himself in a hilarious bit) is great as well. There are some old bits from the previous two seasons of the series included here (such as President Dub-ya's lightsaber battle with Abe Lincoln) among the newly shot footage, with the only real downside of this special being that it ends. However, this DVD release is still worth picking up thanks to the assortment of extras included, which feature interviews, trailers, and discussions of how the whole thing came together. All in all, Robot Chicken: Star Wars is a sheer blast, and even if you're only a fan of one or the other, you'll surely enjoy this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Read before judgeing why I rate it so low November 4, 2010
Format:DVD
I've given this 2 stars not due to the fact that the episode is not funny, i do love Robot Chicken and think the Star Wars parodies are terrific. It's the fact that this DVD is only 1 episode long, and then contains a bunch of bonus features you will watch once, and probably never again. I find it hard to give higher ratings to a 20 min long feature and a heap of useless extras. Hopefully Robot Chicken will release all 3 Star Wars specials on the one disc and do away with the filler stuff, and release a decent DVD, because just as I start to get into these things, the end credits roll and I feel disappointed that it's not a feature length movie, nor at least an hour of material.

I guess now for the price of it, it's not so bad, but when it first came out it was about as expensive as buying a whole season of RC, and makes me wonder why this episode just wasn't included in a RC season as well. It just feels like a cheaply made DVD to earn a bit of cash on the side for RC, so hopefully as I said, they will combine the 3 some day for the one DVD and make something worth purchasing instead of having to keep swapping over 3 discs to watch 20 min long episodes that could all be contained on the one. For the contents on this disc, i'd expect to see such things in a free promo disc or a newspaper giveaway, or maybe even given away with a happy meal, but as something sold world wide, it's hardly worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars "That's no moon, that's yo momma!" February 22, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me qualify this by saying I've yet to get my copy of this DVD so I cannot comment on any extras, if there even are any.

The review is purely for the content, about 30 Robot Chicken shorts that will leave hard core Star Wars fans rolling in the aisles.

I give this 5 stars only for the Star Wars fan, because the price of admission here is a bit steep for a DVD clocking in at just under half an hour and one that has already aired the Cartoon Network. Casual viewers think of this as a 3 star product, best rented before deciding to buy. And it is certainly not for children.

But for the fan, the price is right and it is a must own for your collection, nestled securely next to your copy of Blue Harvest. The quality of these sketches are much more consistent than the normal hit or miss affair we've come to expect from Robot Chicken. They were done for the fans, and that simple fact shines through in all of the gags and inside jokes. Heck, creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich even got George Lucas to play himself at a Star Wars convention -- a la William Shatner on SNL long ago. Other notable voice talent includes Mark Hamill, Hulk Hogan, Seth Green & Seth MacFarlane, Malcolm McDowell and Conan O'Brien.

If you have seen it already, there is no reason for me to go into details.
If you HAVEN'T seen it and are a rabbid Star Wars fan, then I would not dream of spoiling any of the surprises. As the altered opening sequence shows, was this was created with special affection just for you.
Enjoy!

The original RBC Star Wars but probably not the funniest. The Darth Sidious skit on the phone with Vader is my favorite. "What the hell is an aluminium falcon?"

This disk is very short on laughs and content. A lot of the sketches are barely 10 seconds long. I kept waiting for the payoff...and then the scene was over. Read more

I enjoy Robot Chicken, and the Star Wars spoofs are no exception. They are very funny, well written, and oddly cleaner than some regular episodes of Robot Chicken. Read more

Is Robot Chicken Star Wars OK for younger kids?
NO. Absolutely NOT appropriate for an 8-year old. A 16-year old, yes. There's reasons they only put this stuff on after 10 p.m. Language, adult situations, scatalogical humor, violence, sexual references, etc. etc. etc.

Extras
Heck, not even $15. Target (and other places) have it for just under $10.

And I do think it's definitely worth the price. I thought there was just going to be one commentary, maybe two at most. But no, there's SEVEN audio commentaries all with different people, a sketch-by-sketch video... Read More
