5 Days Until Star Wars

The newest addition to the Star Wars franchise premieres in theaters on Dec. 18. To celebrate, I’m counting down all the days until the new movie premieres by sharing Star Wars-related content.

Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite Star Wars skits from the masters of parody, Robot Chicken. The series have created so many Star Wars skits that they actually compiled them into--not one, not two, but three—special episodes. You could almost say that they're a—Star Wars Trilogy! :D

This one’s a classic. You knew someone had to break the news to the Emperor that the Death Star went boom-boom, and you can almost imagine this being his exact reaction to that.

Of course, Star Wars fans are still chasing George Lucas at conventions, but they’re wielding torches and pitchforks to lynch him over the prequels.

Oh, I have one: Yo momma so stupid, she actually thought that the Star Wars Expanded Universe would be canon. (Ooh, burn, Star Wars fans!)

I know many Star Wars fan would have wanted this to be canon. Jar Jar flying out of an airlock into cold the recesses of space? Certainly. Coming back through the force? Not so much.

Another classic. When you think about it, there are a lot of absurd things about the Star Wars universe that fans are expected to accept as plausible.

In this skit, the Star Wars version of Conan O’Brien hosts a mock interview with the Star Wars version of Dick Cheney.

Laugh all you want, but you know that, with Disney having purchased the franchise, this is going to be the next Disney on Ice. Search your heart. You know it to be true!

Yet another classic. Well, someone has to clean up the dead bodies.
