I saw the headline, and I knew that the Force was not with us today:
Lucasfilm plans ‘Star Wars’ sitcom
It’s like an Imperial dispatch that’s actually a trap, via Variety:
Lucasfilm confirmed Monday it is developing a new animated “Star Wars” sitcom.
No network or start date has been set for the laffer. Jennifer Hill, a Daytime Emmy winner for “The Backyardigans,” will produce.
Todd Grimes (“Back at the Barnyard”) is set to direct. “Robot Chicken” executive producers and creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich will be creative consultants on the skein. Hill said “They’ll be shaping the type of comedy we’re looking for and the look of the show.”
But Hill said the new series would not be a spoof but something more in the sitcom vein.
If the Robot Chicken guys are in charge, yay. But it sounds like they won’t be.
I can see it now: Han and Leia’s twins are a couple of mischievous scamps, but just wait till Dad gets home — it’ll be the Pit of Sarlacc for them if they don’t get this mess cleaned up in less than 12 parsecs!
This has been your WTF Thought for the Day.
