The Office In a Galaxy Far Far Away

At the risk of mixing conflicting sci-fi references, Star Wars is about to boldly go where it has never gone before... into the world of the sitcom.

It's been reported that Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, creators of the fantastically warped show Robot Chicken, are working with Lucasfilm to hatch a Star Wars comedy that sounds like an Office take on Star Wars.

Comedy and Star Wars go hand in hand. From the classic Christmas special (starring Bea Arthur!) to the animated treatments from Family Guy and Robot Chicken to the prequels themselves ("Noooooooooooo!"), there has been a lot to laugh at in the Star Wars universe.

A comedy series is a radical move for Star Wars, but I think it may be just what the franchise needs. The prequels and Clone Wars have a decidedly more serious approach, which to me betrays the fun that made Star Wars so special in the first place.

What do you think? Is a Star Wars comedy a good idea or another one of Grandpa George's crazy ideas that will ruin the franchise?
