Robot Chicken Star Wars

It would take Seth "Oz" Green to make George "Bastard" Lucas seem semi-likeable again. From Yahoo!:

"George Lucas and Mark Hamill will reunite for "Robot Chicken: Star Wars," a 30-minute stop-motion animation special for Adult Swim, Comedy Central's late-night programming block.

The special spoofs key scenes and favorite characters from the "Star Wars" universe. It was done in collaboration with Lucas' production company Lucasfilm. Lucas, the creator of the "Star Wars" franchise, will voice a cartoon version of himself, and Hamill will resurrect Luke Skywalker.

The special, set to premiere at 10 p.m. on June 17, comes from "Robot Chicken" creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich... Like just about every child in 1977, Green saw the first "Star Wars" movie.

"It informed my whole creative sensibility, and the 'Star Wars' toys I played with in my childhood inspired my imagination," Green said. "I've always wanted to be a part of a 'Star Wars' project, and I got to make one." And he got to direct Lucas.

"It was really exciting," Green said. "He was very shy but very playful.""

I love how, in that final quote by Green, he makes it sound like he and Lucas made sweet, sweet Wookie love.

Man I'm a dork.
