Not as random, not as funny
on August 3, 2011
One thing I loved about the first two Star Wars Robot Chicken discs was how random they were. At one moment you're seeing stuff that happened behind the scenes at the Cantina, the next you're at a Star Wars convention with George Lucas. With Star Wars Robot Chicken III, there is (almost) a narrative here. It (roughly) follows the chronological story of Star Wars from I to VI with an emphasis on the life on the Emperor.
It's not bad, it's just less of what I like about Star Wars Robot Chicken discs. The Emperor is one of their best characters, if not the best (with Boba Fett being a close second). Fear not though, there's lots of Boba, lots of Darth, and more hilarious Jar Jar. Yes folks, Robot Chicken is the only universe where Jar Jar is actually funny!
Bonus features are the standard Robot Chicken fare, with a round-table featuring George Lucas being the best of the bunch, and in many ways funnier than the main feature. Lucas has a good sense of humour about himself.
