Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, the creators of Robot Chicken, are taking their toys out the box for the third installment of the Robot Chicken Star Wars series. The critically acclaimed Robot Chicken saga premieres 19 December 2010 with an hour long special parodying the dark side of the universe. Through the show’s signature stop motion animation and crafty pop culture wit, Episode III recounts the untold experiences of four galactic bad guys: Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Gary the Stormtrooper. As the special flips around the universe each villainous tale intertwines and connects throughout all six Star Wars films.

Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III features Zac Efron as Anakin Skywalker, Anthony Daniels (from the original Star Wars films) as C3PO, Robot Chicken virgins Mike Henry (The Cleveland Show) and Donald Glover (Community), plus returning voices Ahmed Best as Jar Jar Binks and Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian. Additional voices include: Green, Senreich, Seth MacFarlane, Breckin Meyer, Zeb Wells, Rachael Leigh Cook, Tom Kane and more.

If you are not up to date with Star Wars fear not! Between crooked depictions of a cocky bounty hunter and a frustrated patriarch Stormtrooper, you don’t have to be a sci-fi/Star Wars geek to let some laughs slip. Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III premieres 19 December, 2010 at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.

Last year, I spent the coldest winter in Philadelphia’s recorded history waiting for my dog to do her business somewhere on the thick layers of snow while tuning in to the Hotflush UK Youtube channel on my iPhone.  Later on, the fantastic ambient dubstep label dropped pivotal albums by Mount Kimbie and Scuba. January 2011 looks off to a good start with new signee Sepalcure’s Fleur EP. As this video promises, it’s going to be another winter wonderland.
