It looks like Robot Chicken isn't the only popular TV show to have an upcoming Star Wars special.

Family Guy 1-hour Star Wars special

this episode rocked. so many funny sketches in it. My favorites was Ponda Baba's side of the whole cantina story.
Ponda:"I like your hairstyle!"
Evazan: he doesn't like you!
Ponda: what?? i didn't say that!
XD

also when it was revealed that the "power converters" were a group of strippers at a strip club called the "Toshi Station" LOL

I missed about half of Robot Chicken's Star Wars Special. :(

I thought the sketch with Jar-Jar playing the Ani fanboy routine with Darth Vader was hilarious. Vader ends up flushing Jar-Jar out the airlock only to have Jar-Jar return as a Force ghost when Vader is going to bed. He just can't get rid of him! :lol:

They didn't advertised here on Brazil anyway, I was hoping they would show here but I guess they are not going to... :(

I was excited until I remembered that "Star Wars" and "Special" should never appear in the same title...

Er... what the hay, this looks great. :haw:

I missed it as well. Though, they didn't air it on the channel that Robot Chicken is on up here where I live.

EDIT: You can watch the Robot Chicken Star Wars special here (http://www.starwars.com/video/view/000510.html)!

At least I can watch it online. I'll probably do that tonight.

HAHAHA! That was f***ing great!

"What'll it be pal." "MARTINI!"

"I guess we'll have to eat this boring oatmeal-" "IT'S A TRAP!"

Those both had me laughing my fat ass off :lol:

Won't work right here...
I have a ADSL but it wouldn't load fast enough, it just starts then stops...
Anyone knows of somewhere else I could watch?

Amazing!

The opening with the Emperor on the Phone, along with the Jar Jar bit and Ponda Baba's back story were probably my favorites. Not to mention the George Lucas fanboy routine :D

Wow that was great.

Lorden Darkblade
06-19-2007, 01:25 PM
Finally I watched it!!!
Awesome!! I really liked. The "your mother" part with Luke and the Emperor was awesome too.
In fact I liked all the parts that had the Emperor!

My only question is...what took them so long?!

Lorden Darkblade
06-23-2007, 11:23 AM
I guess it's not easy to make these episodes..
Dunno, it looks so perfect that I think it's hard to make this type of animation. And they still have to come up with a "story" for it. ;)
I could be wrong though.

stop motion animation takes a damn long time. you have to set everything in order, take the picture, then move it slightly, and take it again. i don't remember the exact number, but like a whooolle lotta those pictures would eventually equal to 1 second of footage. that's why each Robot Chicken ep is only 10 min long. i believe they said they spend 13 weeks on this special.

MrWally

Well regular video is what, 28? 30 Frames per second? Something like that. And clearly this isn't that many but it's gonna be almost 20 if not more. So that's 20 photographs for each SECOND of footage. That's pretty intense.
