Well, while in London shooting Empire, the charcters of Star Wars stoped at the studio where they shot the Muppet Show! Here is some clips:
The Opening sequence:
Mark Hamill's Musical Number:

"We seem to have landed on some... comedy variety show... planet..." :-P

Enjoy!
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

That was really great!  They don't make them like that anymore  :'-)   But I think you mixed up your second link?  I didn't see Mark Hamill anywhere in it!

Star Wars Muppet action figures in development

New Muppet actions figures based on the Star Wars characters are scheduled for release in the fall of 2007

By Greg James, Muppet Central
May 28, 2007


May 25 marked the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, and as part of the festivities several representatives from Disney's merchandising division took part in an exclusive panel discussion at the Star Wars fan convention "Celebration IV" in Los Angeles.

Posted Image

Their presentation covered the history and future of Disney's Star Wars cross-merchandising. Disney gave fans in attendance a "sneak peek" at a slue of new Disney Star Wars merchandise. And one of the many items show is sure to excite Muppet collectors.

Disney gave a glimpse of an upcoming series of action figures of Disney Characters dressed as Star Wars characters such as Mickey Mouse as Luke Skywalker, Donald Duck as Han Solo or Goofy as Darth Vader. But one similar upcoming product they have planned is a Muppet Star Wars gift set which will feature six well-known Muppets as characters from the Star Wars saga.

The planned figures include Beaker as C-3PO, Fozzie Bear as Chewbacca, Miss Piggy as Princess Leia, Kermit the Frog as Luke Skywalker, Gonzo the Great as Darth Vader (or Dearth Nadir as known in the Muppet-universe) and Rizzo the Rat as Yoda. The panel at "Celebration IV" even shared some concept art for the figures.

This box set is scheduled for release later this year. The product will be sold exclusively at the Disney Theme parks' gift shops (the shops tied to the Star Tours theme ride). They may also become available through online retailers as well.

I might have to break my "LEGO only" SW Merchandise rule for this set!

Maybe he was meant to link to this:

Beaker as C-3PO? Ha Ha, I love Beaker!
Yep, I'm back! Be afraid...

Oh also The Muppets relate to Star Wars because of Frank Oz.

He's the voice for both Yoda and...

Miss Piggy !  X-D

Frank Oz was not only the voice of Yoda, but also puppeteert him in Episode 5,6 and 1. In episode 2 and 3 Yoda was complete digital.

In a muppet christmas film, based on the classic "It's a wonderfull life" Yoda has a cameo when an Angel wants to help Kermit to another dimension where he never was.

This muppet show is great, I thought it was availeble a couple of years ago on a dvd box with 12 episodes of the muppetshow, also some show with John Cleese.
The episode has Mark Hamil, who plays both himself and Luke Skywalker, C3po, R2d2 and Chewbacca. The role of Leia is played by Miss Piggy and the role of Darth Vader is played by Gonzo. Han is skipped, as is Obi-wan kenobi (hey, it's the muppet show, did you expect they do it perfect :-P  :-D ).

Kermit: Its not easy being green.
Yoda: What you say. *yoda*   :-D

Sounds fun. How do we play?

I just realized that my second link was to "Sailing for Adventure", from my favoite Muppets movie: Muppet Treasure Island. Here is a link to the musical number I had in mind:
Some related clips:

And for those of you who, like me, remember watching Mupppet Babies when you were younger, here are the Muppet Babies Star Wars/Star Trek/Jetsons/ something else parody:
Part 1:
Part 2:

EDIT: I just had a revalation: Rawlf if my favorite Muppets Character!
