Robot Chicken Star Wars III: DVD Review

Robot Chicken Star Wars III: DVD Review

Robot Chicken Star Wars III
Rating: M
Released by Madman Home Ent
Once more unto the breach of Star Wars gags in this latest spoof series from the Robot Chicken team.
Taking the usual format of plenty of speedy sketches, this latest doesn't really deviate too far from the mould to be honest.
This time around, the guys take aim at the likes Obi Wan working Jedi mind tricks on himself in the mirror, C3P0 taking Spanish lessons, and follows the antics of Gary The Stormtrooper.
I guess really, it comes down to whether you're a fan of Star Wars and can recognize the targets this motion capture animation takes aim at - certainly if you are, you'll get a lot more out of it. But even the most casual Star Wars fan is likely to raise a few giggles from this 45 minute episode.
Extras: A very generous helping with over 3 hours of nuggets of deleted scenes, animatics and commentaries. Plus a Sunday in the boardroom with the real George Lucas gives you an insight into how accepted this parody and mockery has become.

Rating: 7/10
