Lucasfilm Animation is developing an animated series to look at the lighter side of Ewoks, Storm Troopers and Gungans and it has enlisted the aid of "Robot Chicken" creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, as well as "Daily Show" writer Brendan Hay.
Does this mean we'll get treated to story lines involving Darth Vader's backed-up toilet? Or Admiral Ackbar and wife fussing over a dinner party for Mon Mothma?
Sometimes you should simply sit back and say, "I created a iconic series of movies that told a morality play in a galaxy far, far away." I mean, there were moments when I questioned Lucas' judgment, like the ending of - what was it, the 5th movie? - when Harrison Ford was standing there looking quite ill at ease among happy, singing Ewoks. I mean, keep some dignity, and even George realized it when he locked away in a vault forever the 1978 Star Wars holiday special.
But funny as in "ha-ha" animation for Star Wars? Shoot, why not look for depth by having Scooby Doo and those crazy kids in their Mystery Machine join forces with Luke and company, as they battle 'droid zombies, only to remove the mask of one when they capture it to find out it was Yoda all that time .
