The Force is strong with "Robot Chicken."
Fresh off of an Emmy nomination for the " Star Wars" episode of "Robot Chicken," Adult Swim has announced that it will go forward with a sequel, appropriately titled "Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II."
"We're thrilled to get to make 'Episode II;' it doesn't even seem real--getting to make Star Wars twice!" says co-creater Seth Green, who also won an Annie Award for directing the first special.. "We're so excited and bursting with joy."
"With this second special, we knew we had to do something a bit different, something more," adds co-creator Matt Senreich. "With that in mind, we decided to focus on the bounty hunters a bit and explore their stories. It's a geek-fest for us all."
"Episode II" will feature the returning voice talents of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, Ahmed Best as Jar Jar Binks, Seth MacFarlane as Emperor Palpatine, Breckin Meyer as Admiral Ackbar and Boba Fett, Conan O'Brien as Zuckuss and Donald Faison. Comedian Andy Richter will also join the voice talent.
The first "Robot Chicken: Star Wars" special was released Tuesday, July 22 on DVD. The sequel will premiere on Nov. 16.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
