Bonnie Burton | April 21, 2008

According to MTV.com, “Robot Chicken” co-creator and actor Seth Green revealed at NY Comic Con that he will be doing a cameo in the upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series.

“I did something on that cartoon,” Green admitted to us at NY Comic Con, revealing for the first time that the “Buffy” star will be making an appearance in the upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. “I came in and did a voice.”

As for which character Green will play, fans will have to wait for the series to hit Cartoon Network later this year to find out. “I’d love to tell you, but I can’t,” he gushed. “They make me sign all these papers and then they take my kids away. [But] it was fun.”

Wired Profiles “Robot Chicken”

StarWars.com Team | September 27, 2007

Get a behind-the-scenes look at “Robot Chicken” with a special report from the Oct. 2007 issue of Wired magazine. Co-creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, as well as the producers Corey Campodonico and Alex Bulkley of ShadowMachine Films, talk about the success of “Robot Chicken” — including their most recent Star Wars special.

From Wired.com:

Since its debut in 2005, Chicken has helped the cable channel set ratings records and has enjoyed brisk DVD sales. When the Palpatine snippet found its way onto YouTube last year, it generated more than a million views, creating a flock of new fans — and eventually hatching a 30-minute Robot Chicken: Star Wars TV special.

With some 30 projects in development, Shadow Machine has expanded from a two-man operation to a staff of around 80. Green and Senreich’s production company, Stoopid Monkey, recently inked a two-picture deal with heavy hitters Harvey and Bob Weinstein, and ShadowMachine has signed on to handle production. “There’s a glut of CG right now, and they’re unique in the market place,” says Matthew Stein, senior VP of production at the Weinsteins’ Dimension Films, who developed the deal. “Who’s to say there’s not an opportunity for stop-motion on the big screen?”

Just ask George Lucas, who was so tickled after seeing the Palpatine sketch that he gave Robot Chicken rare carte blanche to craft a half-hour Star Wars parody. He even voiced his own plaid-shirted Mini-Me for one skit and hosted a screening of the special at Skywalker Ranch. “George got really complimentary,” Green recalls. “I leaned in and said, ‘I want to do two sequels and three prequels — if you’re cool with it.’” And why not? As Lucas himself might put it: Today Coruscant. Tomorrow, the world.

Seth Green Talks Robot Chicken DVD

StarWars.com Team | August 20, 2007

Actor and Robot Chicken co-creator Seth Green sat down with IGN.com to chat about the upcoming Robot Chicken: Season 2 DVD, the Robot Chicken: Star Wars special and the upcoming seasons of Robot Chicken and “Family Guy.”
Here’s a snippet:

IGN TV: What are your plans as far as a DVD release of Robot Chicken: Star Wars? Will it be included with Season 3 or will it have an independent release?
You know, we’re actually talking about that right now. There’s a lot of different conversations being had, so I’m not entirely sure how it’s gonna pan out. My expectation is that it will be its own DVD. We’re just trying to figure out what content will be on it, in addition to the special.

IGN TV: “Family Guy” has their own Star Wars special coming. Did you get to boast to Seth [MacFarlane] that you beat him to it?
No. He and I don’t have that kind of competitive relationship. We were both just so giddy about the fact that we get to make Star Wars. Although we called each other during the production, because we were writing them around the same time, just kind of conferring and making sure we weren’t stepping on each other’s joke toes.
