Seth Green and the rest of the Robot Chicken crew are currently hard at work developing their fifth season of their hilarious TV series. They have five episodes ready to go, and are working on finishing up the next five. The fifth season is going to include spoofs on a couple huge movie franchises, one being James Cameron's Avatar, and the other being Twilight. These spoofs will be along the same line as their Star Wars parodies. There's no doubt they are going to have a hell of a fun time making these, and I'm sure we'll have even more fun watching what they come up with. Here is what Green recently had to say about it.
We take some really basic stuff and laugh about it. I don't know, I like to think our view of stuff is different than what people typically think of, but we really just point to the most simple elements and say, 'Isn't this funny?'
As you know the RC crew uses consumer toys in the stop-motion animated shorts that they develop. Green explains that the Avatar toys are cool to use but the Twilight toys will have to be constructed.
Mattel made a ton of really sweet Avatar stuff. The Twilight stuff we're going to have to make because of the scale. All the Avatar stuff is all similar scale, so we can populate an entire sketch with all of their toys. With Twilight they have to interact with other characters, so the Twilight toys won't work for us.
Robot Chicken is a fantastic series and I'm looking forward to seeing what they end up doing in season five. There's no doubt we'll be laughing our asses off.
