Boba Fett Gets His Revenge on the 'Star Wars' Heroes ... At LastThey say that revenge is a dish that is best served cold. But then, that's a quote from 'Star Trek.' And we're more concerned with 'Star Wars,' in this instance -- plus some "hot" revenge.

The animated special 'Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III' (Sun., 11:30PM ET on CN) takes an irreverent look at the 'Star Wars' universe. And the show brings back one of the most beloved figures in geekdom, bounty hunter Boba Fett.

In the real 'Star Wars' movies, the relentless Boba Fett captures Han Solo, delivering him to Jabba the Hutt. But then, Luke Skywalker frees Han Solo -- and Boba is killed when his jetpack is accidentally activated. The bounty hunter dies from ... crashing into a sail barge and falling into a big pit. It's a really lame ending for a really cool bad guy. Ever since then, geeks have wished that Mr. Fett hadn't died. Now, 'Robot Chicken' gives him a second chance.

Seth previewed his new 'Robot Chicken'-based Star Wars special; while Craig -- well, Craig mainly asked some questions. Questions such as this one: What is Darth Vader doing struggling with his suit in a bathroom?

Seth Green Talks 'Robot Chicken' on 'Daily Show'Seth Green appeared on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM) to chat about "Episode III" of his 'Robot Chicken: Star Wars' trilogy. The award-winning animated specials have become a force (pardon the pun) in themselves.

"I've had parents tell me that they introduced their kids to 'Star Wars' through 'Robot Chicken,'" said Green. "That is... counter-productive."

Jon Stewart asked, "Do you think that's just parents getting high [while] watching 'Robot Chicken' and the kids walk in and go, 'Can I have a glass of-- What's this?'" Green considered that to be a tad irresponsible -- the pot-smoking, not the program choice. Oh, uh, right. "No, that doesn't happen at all," Stewart joked sheepishly.

Star WarsWell, who knew George Lucas likes to laugh at himself?

The sci-fi legend was tickled enough by 'Robot Chicken's' 'Star Wars' send-ups to hand over the reins of a new animated series to 'Chicken' wunderkinds Seth Green and Matthew Senreich.

Lucasfilm Animation announced the new series Monday, promising "a comedic and irreverent look at the characters from the sci-fi franchise." Green offers a hint at where he'll take these iconic characters.
