    I like how the title is a reference to the Star Tours ride.

    I'll still watch it, but the jokes were really hit or miss with no grey area in between.

    I just can't get over how ugly the character designs are. Honestly, I think it looks like crap.

    Whatever George Lucas' original vision was when he conceived Star Wars, is now far, far gone. Star Wars is now a parody of within itself.

    It says something that I looked at the people making it, I looked at the character designs and went "Uh oh."

    So, it takes place betwixt the 3rd and 4th episodes like originaly envisioned for the live-action series... Did this usurp it's position? Like, they are still doing the live action thing once Lucas can do it for under $1 million per episode, right?

    I had to laugh at the attitude in the story, "Anything they do is cannon and the fanboys can sort it out." That was pretty funny, even if it is a big "Pthbbbt!" to all the long-time fans who actually care about when what takes place.

    Quick meter as to how much you'll enjoy the show...

    Oh God.

    This was literally the worst thing I've ever seen.

    I'll be dumbstruck if this abomination lasts longer than one or two episodes.

    It will never match the Robot Chicken Star Wars specials. The skits with Boba Fett and Bossk were just genius in those.

    I laughed during the scene with Akbar, but that's it.

    This looks horrible. Also, WTF at the character designs, why are they so inconsistent?

    Pretty much. Unfortunately, I found them to be more misses than hits. I liked the Akbar part and the Artoo part (even if that one was a bit predictable. Bane pretty much made it chuckle worthy).

    I'll give it a shot, but I'm not expecting much. Can't be worse than Episode II, though.

    Bah, if you want Serious Star Wars read the comics.

    (Cade Skywalker, Jahan Cross, Dass Jennir, Quinlan Vos, Zayne Carric, Biggs Darklighter just for starters)

    Cannon? BWAHAHAHAH! NOT.

    The Akbar thing was hillarious. The Vader stuff not so much.
    Are Not! Are Too! *Bweep?* Not you trashcan!
    But the two Stormtroopers,,, man I think those two are gonna be crowd favorites already.
    For luck *fistbump* Aaaaaaaagggh,,, *thump* Oh thank god it's a Matte Painting!

    If anyone gave a damn about my opinion of charachter design models, well I hated Clone Wars, see how much my opinion matters to the creators? Yeah,,,,

    So now that I'm over that it still looks pretty funny.

    I wonder if this version of Vader will invite a couple of TIE Pilots to "maintain the current level of black representation on the committee,,, let's take a stroll". Or if he'll tell any Imperal officers to "sit down before you fall down"
