The writers of Robot Chicken are at San Diego Comic-Con, and they have a treat for us — news about the upcoming Season 9. And we’re thrilled to report the first episode in the season will take on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Robot Chicken is the Emmy award-winning Adult Swim sketch-comedy series with a merciless yet geeky sensibility. Their topics include Star Trek, DC Comics, Predator, The Avengers, King Kong, and many others. The writers are as geeky/wacky as you’d expect. Writer Tim Root even complains, “I’m one of the only writers in the writers' room who follows sports ... and nobody will know what I’m talking about.”

The Force Awakens isn’t the only geeky subject we can anticipate. We’re also getting, um, an eyeful of Westworld.

Check it out.
