ZAC EFRON IS THE VOICE OF ANAKIN SKYWALKER IN THE PREMIERE OF ROBOT CHICKEN: STAR WARS EPISODE III

From 27th December 2010 on www.adultswim.co.uk

Adult Swim is bringing the force a bit closer to home on 27th December with the European premiere of the third Star Wars special of its Emmy award-winning stop-motion animated series Robot Chicken. The 45 minute long episode, starring Zac Efron will be available to view on adultswim.co.uk for 1 week until 3rd January 2011.

The legendary story of the intergalactic struggle between good vs. evil gets a unique make-over in Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III with full endorsement from Lucasfilm. The episode brazenly combines the satirical touch of the show’s creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich’s series Robot Chicken, with the Star Wars universe. Four key characters (Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Gary the Stormtrooper) reveal the untold stories of what went on behind the scenes throughout all six Star Wars films from Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi. Witness Palpatine’s real struggle with ruling a ruthless Empire, see Gary the Stormtrooper knock over an Ewok on his first joyride, Hans Solo gets to meet Chewbacca’s family and a disco dancing Darth Vader is revealed as a clumsy fool.

Among the favourite characters of the Star Wars universe is the creator George Lucas himself voicing his stop-motion animated likeness. Other noteworthy voice actors include Zac Efron as Anakin Skywalker and Star Wars veterans Anthony Daniels as C3PO, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian and Ahmed Best as Jar Jar Binks, along with returning favourites Green, Senreich, Rachael Leigh Cook, Breckin Meyer and Seth MacFarlane.

The first two instalments in the Robot Chicken: Star Wars trilogy resulted in multiple award nominations and numerous Annie Awards and fast became the highest-rated original program on Adult Swim in the US.

Matthew Senreich says, “We wanted to take the Star Wars universe and see it through the eyes of Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Gary the Stormtrooper. We still flip around the universe but we get a unique perspective from the bad guy side, from people who just want to rule the universe.”
