It's like.... no one gives a crap anymore. Let's just make fun of what we've got and go with it.
Well that was obnoxious.
It's Robot Chicken Star Wars just not as funny. Literally half of the voices are Seth MacFarlene and Seth Green. On top of that the overly cartoony animation (large heads, small bodies) just makes me cringe. Lucas always talks of how they can't film the Underworld live action movie because of money issues. To me it seems like because they're more focused making this crap.
Sigh. But my kids will love it.
I enjoyed the original Robot Chicken Star Wars 1 and 2 as well as the Family Guy stuff, but this looks like an extremely dumbed down Clone Wars cartoon.
I will agree it's a perfect title, because it's quite a major detour for sure...
Talk about diluting a brand ...
Wow...that rock just keeps sinking further....
Not for me, I dont enjoy shows like it. Saying that, I have no problem with Lucas A) letting the franchise live (Most of the youth I talk to knows SW trough the prequels, and they dont enjoy the old ones more), and B) making SW based stuff aimed at young children. I have no problem at all with the LEGO stuff either. Its not a big leap from that to this.
The stuff I love with the OT, cant be made today -by anyone. I prefer if the franchise lives, not just being some old films, us old nerds look back at with nostagia though.

So that's not indie/fan made?
I don;t have sound here at work, so I couldn't hear the dialog. Going just on visuals though, I'm not that much a fan of the Clone Wars, and this is just worse visually.
I am open to other interpretation and the Lego stuff is actually well done with a good sense of humor that appeals to a fairly general audience for Lego and Star Wars fans alike.
It looks like a 2nd rate Spaceballs. The Lego stuff is amusing and a show done in a more mature way like the new 1313 game wouldn't be bad but this was horrid.
I guessing this "Trailer" is most of the decent footage from the whatever longer version. I was bored and appalled by this one, so I'm not going to bother to seek out the larger version.
Is this thing real or just a test to see if there is enough interest to go ahead with a season?
Sent from my Etch-A-Sketch
Just watched it again. It isn't so much the low quality or the direction that irks me. It's the overwhelming sense that everyone at LucasFilm is done with Star Wars as a serious franchise. Is there no one at Lucasfilm that wants to just tell an awesome Star Wars story that doesn't depend on parody or that a**hole Anakin?
I kinda liked it. I dunno why...lol.... People take Star Wars so damn seriously. The original Trilogy will always be therefor us. Star Wars just isn't like that anymore. It's something that just ins't taken seriously anymore by the majority. This is poking fun at itself and I think it's kinda funny.
Man, what bitter fan rage. I think this looks like great fun. Sorry you guys don't think so but I welcome this.
I'm not even a huge Star Wars fan anymore I just found it obnoxious and poorly done. I like the OT but I also like the later games and EU stuff that I grew up reading.
