Lucasfilm says it will explore the comic aspects of that "galaxy far, far away'' as it playfully and irreverently confronts the saga's characters and mythology.
Part of the creative team is Seth Green, who helped hatch the popular "Robot Chicken.'' He promises the new show will answer the question, "What do these Star Wars characters do when they're not overthrowing Empires?''
If George Lucas can stay away from direct creative control over the project, this has a shot at being funny. Robot Chicken's take on Star Wars is downright hilarious.
