In the first "Robot Chicken" episode of "Star Wars" parodies, Joey Fatone was seen cutting a new single with Jabba the Hutt's blue bandleader.
''Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II'' is a go.
Just days after the Adult Swim show landed a best animated series Emmy nomination for its ''Star Wars'' episode, the cable network is moving ahead with a sequel that will premiere Nov. 16.
''It doesn't even seem real -- getting to make Star Wars twice!'' said ''Robot Chicken'' co-creator Seth Green, who is set to direct the second ''Star Wars''-themed episode.
Several members of the voice cast from the first special, including original ''Star Wars'' actors Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams -- reprising their roles as Princess Leia and Lando Calrissian, respectively -- are back.
As for the creative direction in the sequel, ''we decided to focus on the bounty hunters a bit and explore their stories,'' ''Robot Chicken'' co-creator Matt Senreich said. ''It's a geek-fest for us all.''
''Robot Chicken'' hails from Green and Senreich's Stoopid Monkey Prods. and Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico's ShadowMachine Films.
The first ''Robot Chicken: Star Wars'' special was released Tuesday on DVD.
