"Let me qualify this by saying I've yet to get my copy of this DVD so I cannot comment on any extras, if there even are any.
The review is purely for the content, about 30 Robot Chicken shorts that will leave hard core Star Wars fans rolling in the aisles.
I give this 5 stars only for the Star Wars fan, because the price of admission here is a bit steep for a DVD clocking in at just under half an hour and one that has already aired the Cartoon Network. Casual viewers think of this as a 3 star product, best rented before deciding to buy. And it is certainly not for children.
But for the fan, the price is right and it is a must own for your collection, nestled securely next to your copy of Blue Harvest. The quality of these sketches are much more consistent than the normal hit or miss affair we've come to expect from Robot Chicken. They were done for the fans, and that simple fact shines through in all of the gags and inside jokes. Heck, creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich even got George Lucas to play himself at a Star Wars convention -- a la William Shatner on SNL long ago. Other notable voice talent includes Mark Hamill, Hulk Hogan, Seth Green & Seth MacFarlane, Malcolm McDowell and Conan O'Brien.
If you have seen it already, there is no reason for me to go into details.
If you HAVEN'T seen it and are a rabbid Star Wars fan, then I would not dream of spoiling any of the surprises. As the altered opening sequence shows, was this was created with special affection just for you.
Two hours of extra feature plus the great original show!

"I watched this DVD today and laughed as much or more as the first time I saw this show on Adult Swim. This DVD has a number of features to recommend it:
- Two hours of extra features, including deleted scenes, commentary, animation meeting, panel presentations, alternate audio and more.
- Terrific presentation of the original show. It even sounds as though the music to dialogue level has been adjusted on the "Empire On Ice" sketch so that the hilarious lyrics to the songs are much more audible and clear than they were when originally shown on TV.
At less than $10, this DVD is absolutely worth it. A great entertainment value for the price. Even the blurbs on the back of the DVD case are entertaining."

Star Wars + Robot Chicken = Hilarious fun

"Anyone who's watched Robot Chicken knows that creator Seth Green and his crew are big time Star Wars geeks, which makes this marriage of Star Wars and Robot Chicken all the more sensible. Robot Chicken: Star Wars is a half-hour special of shorts and skits that pay wonderful, hilarious homage to the phenomenon that is Star Wars, by poking fun at characters and memorable scenes from entire series. The visual gags and blink-and-you'll-miss-them moments are incredibly funny, and the voice talent assembled (including Green, Seth MacFarlane, Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamil, Ahmed "Jar-Jar Binks" Best, Donald Faison, Hulk Hogan, Malcolm McDowell, Joey Fatone, Breckin Meyer, Conan O'Brien, James Van Der Beek, and even George Lucas himself in a hilarious bit) is great as well. There are some old bits from the previous two seasons of the series included here (such as President Dub-ya's lightsaber battle with Abe Lincoln) among the newly shot footage, with the only real downside of this special being that it ends. However, this DVD release is still worth picking up thanks to the assortment of extras included, which feature interviews, trailers, and discussions of how the whole thing came together. All in all, Robot Chicken: Star Wars is a sheer blast, and even if you're only a fan of one or the other, you'll surely enjoy this."
