Luke Skywalker and Dawson Do Voices (Again!)---This Time in Robot Chicken

Yep, you've read the highlight correctly!

On June 15th, there will be an episode of Adult Swim's "Robot Chicken", which will be a parody of "Star Wars."

And yes, Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, will be performing on the episode!

He'll also be joined by a certain James Van Der Beek, whose previous voice acting role was young hero Pazu in Hayao Miyazaki's "Castle in the Sky" (it also happens to be the first time Skywalker and Dawson were in the same film together--here Hamill turned in a deliciously devious performance as villainous Muska [insert jokes here about Luke going to the Dark Side here]). Although Van Der Beek's role of Pazu wasn't the strongest of the dub, his performance gets more flak than it deserves; despite sounding ten years older than his character should have, he still managed to bring consistent enthusiasm and energy to the role. It'll be interesting to see what he'll play on this episode.

Predictably, I expect Hamill to reprise his role of Luke.

The episode will be broadcast on Adult Swim on June 15th, 8 PM. So keep your eyes open!
