Last night Harrison Ford appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to promote his new movie 'Cowboys & Aliens,' and Chewbacca stopped by his dressing room.
However, far from being the love-fest we might have expected, the reunion quickly turned ugly.
It seems as though Chewbacca did the nasty with Ford's wife and he's not the type to forgive and forget: "I'm done with that 'Star Wars' crap and I'm done with you!"
As he tossed Chewie out of his dressing room Ford drove the knife in a little further and twisted it: "Daniel Craig's my Wookiee b***h now!" Ouch.
Watch the hilarious expletive-laden video after the jump.
It's wabbit season! No, it's duck season!
Actually, it's both. Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, and all the old-school Warner Bros. animated characters are coming back for 'The Looney Toons Show,' a series on Cartoon Network consisting of all-new half-hour episodes and shorts starring the classic cartoon characters.
Perhaps this will be the comedy series with the 'Robot Chicken' creators that he was referring to in the past. Or perhaps it's a variation of that live-action 'Star Wars' television show that is forthcoming. Or perhaps it's just Lucas messing with the heads of any fans of the franchise even further than he already has.
Anybody who reads the original novels that serve as a sequel to the original trilogy is in for a nasty shock. Lucas has a tendency to ignore concepts that he himself didn't originate that actually enhance his franchise. It's likely that any new series will render those novels as moot as 'Galactica 1980.'
Hibberd's latest art posting is an 'Arrested Development'/'Star Wars' mash-up, in the style of the old 'Star Wars' movie posters. The poster features the Bluth clan, including Michael (Jason Bateman), Lindsay (Portia de Rossi), George (Will Arnett), and Lucille (Jessica Walter), as well as the banana stand and Tobias bare-chested in his cutoff shorts. You even get Buster (Tony Hale) in silhouette, holding his hook hand to the sky, a Bluth Industries truck, and a speeding, driverless Segue.
'Robot Chicken' along with 'Family Guy' proved that there is comedy potential in the 'Star Wars' franchise, but it sounds like Lucas is further mitigating the cultural impact of the first trilogy (or even the second trilogy, going by order of release) by making light of it.
Lucas has long proven that the fans care more about the franchise than he ever did. It has gotten to the point where pumping out 'Star Wars' dreck is a means to an end. Perhaps he wants the money to build his own Death Star?
Of course, that live action 'Star Wars' series has yet to appear, so this latest item could just be someone's idea of a late April Fool's Day prank. One can have "a new hope."
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.
That collective hooting and hollering has never been any louder now that the Mandalorians are finally getting Star Wars canon screen time in tonight's kick-off of a three-story arc, "The Mandalore Plot." Dave Filoni, Clone Wars supervising director, hears those empassioned tones and knows the responsibility he's facing.
"Ever since the first time we saw Boba Fett in 1980, the fans have known he had Mandalorian armor," Filoni said during an interview at Lucasfilm's HQ in San Francisco's Presidio. "Fans have been waiting a long time to see the Mandalorians in action."
"This is George Lucas' universe and he's very active in the show. So, it was George who suggested we bring the Mandalorians into the series."
According to Variety, Adult Swim has ordered 40 additional episodes of 'Robot Chicken,' providing the top-rated stop-action series with enough material to fill seasons 5 and 6. Prior seasons have aired 20 episodes at a time, already a strong display of network confidence in the product.
More of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about the funniest or most surprising late night moments of the last ten years.
In the past decade, late night shows continued to bloom in popularity. However, some of our favorite late night shows were shuffled around while some got new hosts.
No matter what network executives decided to do to the line up of US late night shows, their hosts and guest stars gave us plenty fantastic, OMG!, and WTF? moments that generated tons of watercooler talks and forum discussion threads.
Below are some of the best late night moments of the past decade as chosen by some of the TV Squad bloggers. We realize there are tough choices in this category, so we hope you'll add your own favorites in the comments section below.
The follow-up to the successful Star Wars: Episode IV -- "A New Hope" spoof, Blue Harvest, Dark Side follows the exploits of Luke Skywalker (Chris Griffin, voiced by Seth Green), Han Solo (the MacFarlane-voiced Peter Griffin -- who insists on a new Rebel Alliance code name: Carlos Spicy Wiener) and their heroic friends as they flee the pursuing Imperial Fleet and Darth Vader (Stewie, also MacFarlane).
To celebrate the DVD's December 22 release, MacFarlane hosted a star (wars) studded Christmas party at his estate in the upper reaches of Beverly Hills. Reporters were rounded up, blind-folded and transported via unmarked black helicopters to MacFarlane's home to talk to the DVD's cast and to rub elbow's with Mos Eisley Cantina's worth of celebrities.
The show remains one of the highest rated programs for males aged 12-25. That's no surprise since boys have always been the cash cow of George Lucas' $3 billion empire (no pun intended).
Hasbro is the emperor of Star Wars toys (at least those for kids), and the company has a couple of new, higher end items for the 2009 holidays.
The Clone Wars Remote Control R2-D2 is pretty much as advertised. For about $30, you get a replica of a Death Star comm-link that controls the droid's movements, sounds and lights. A kid will have fun driving him around the house. But, the toy is more fun for adults if you imagine that every beep he makes is really a rude, digitized curse word.
With the animated action show continuing to draw big numbers on Friday nights, its home network is serving up a chance for fans to build their own Clone Wars game and share it with other gamers.
According to the network, these game creators aren't a stunt to generate TV show buzz. The Ben 10: Alien Force Game Creator posted more than 630 million game plays since it went live a year ago, with more than 4.6 million games created by online visitors.
Once fans open their game creator, they choose their character (Anakin Skywalker, Captain Rex or Cad Bane) and their vehicle (AT-TE, AT-RT or Speeder), allowing nine different combinations of character abilities and vehicle powers.
But, as the show ramps up the action content and significantly sweetens its visuals, its increased intensity might be driving away some younger viewers.
As The Clone Wars moves through its second season, the war is growing -- both in scope and violence. Viewers are seeing more dead Clonetroopers, more crashed vehicles and more beloved characters in deadly jeopardy.
Its ratings continue to cruise in hyperspace (especially for males), but I wonder if the darker tones of season two could drive younger kids and their parents away from the show.

The story in the new game, Star Wars: The Clone Wars - "Republic Heroes" bridges the gap between the show's first two runs, as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and their loyal Clone Trooper comrades take on a new Separatist enemy packing a freshly polished doomsday weapon.
Available for PS3, Nintendo Wii or Xbox 360, "Republic Heroes" lets you play as a Jedi Knight or as a Clone Trooper -- depending on where you are in the game and what choices you make as a player.
