Comic-Con 2008: Next "Robot Chicken" will have Fett and Sarlacc

Published • Written by • Categorized in Multimedia

From Entertainment Weekly:

As for the new Star Wars special, Green promised that the bounty hunters would finally get their due, with sketches that would peek into the backgrounds of favorites like Dengar and Bossk (the writers-room favorite, who Root is determined to get into a tuxedo at some point). Another sketch: One that Meyer promised would finally articulate the true nature of the relationship between Boba Fett and the Sarlacc Pit. Production has already started, and Green said that fans can look forward to some familiar voices, including Star Wars luminaries like Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams.

In June 2007, the “Robot Chicken: Star Wars” television show included Boba Fett and Han Solo in carbonite. Read our news coverage.

The new episode, “Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II,” will be broadcast on November 16, 2008 at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network. Boba Fett’s voice will be done by Breckin Meyer.

Seth Green, actor and co-creator of the show, also mentioned to the Associated Press (read the entire story on CNN Money) and mentioned his interest in Boba Fett:

“I had Boba Fett and Barbie go out on a date once — my 12-inch Boba Fett and my sister’s Barbie,” he recalls. But who could fault Boba Fett for being smitten? “It’s hard to resist her,” says Green, grinning impishly.

The show’s co-creator, Matt Senreich, also told Wired Magazine that the “sequel would hone in on the stories of bounty hunters like Boba Fett, promising ‘It’s a geek-fest for us all.'”
