"We wanted to take the Star Wars universe and see if through the eyes of our Robot Chicken: Star Wars Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Gary the Stormtrooper," said co-creator Matthew Senreich. "We'll still flip around the universe but we'll get a unique perspective from the bad guy side, from people who just want to rule the universe."
The special is being penned by a slew of it's usual writers plus frequent guest writer Geoff Johns. No word yet on if he'll try and stick a Green Lantern joke in there seeing as how the story takes place in space. :)
