Revenge of the Sith

Someone should tell George Lucas that April Fool’s Day was last week.

In a so-crazy-it-just-might-work move, the Star Wars creator has teamed his animation department with the creators of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken, Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, to launch a comedy set in his Galaxy Far, Far Away.

Green said in a statement:

“The ‘Star Wars’ universe is so dense and rich; it’s crazy to think that there aren’t normal, mundane everyday problems in a world so well-defined. And it’s even crazier to think of what those problems might be, since it’s all set in a galaxy far, far away. What do these characters do when they’re not overthrowing Empires?”

It’s not really that surprising, after two all-Star Wars episodes of both Robot Chicken and Family Guy. But with The Clone Wars under way on Cartoon Network and a live-action series in pre-production, has Lucas finally gone overboard and risked total saturation?

I have a bad feeling that the critics are once again going to have the last laugh.

Simpsons writer Brendan Hay is reportedly on board for the project, but no network has signed on yet.
