Notes & Trivia Edit
- There are several notable cameo voices throughout the episode, in particular, Carrie Fisher, famous for her portrayal of Princess Leia Organa, now cast in the role of Mon Mothma. The Rancor is replaced with radio personality Rush Limbaugh, who provides his own voice for the Rancor growling scenes. Another shot features the main cast from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Actors Patrick Stewart and Michael Dorn provide the voices for their characters, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Worf.
- In each installment of the Family Guy Star Wars parodies, Meg Griffin is recast in the role of a hideous monster. In Blue Harvest, she was the dianoga. In Something, Something, Something, Dark Side, she was the giant space worm. In I'ts a Trap!, she's the Sarlacc. Each representation of Meg includes her trademark cap and eyeglasses.
- During the Tatooine execution scene, a clip of Ted Knight's cantankerous character Judge Shmails from the 1980 comedy film Caddyshack is spliced into the scene. It's the clip from the end of the film when an exasperated Shmails tells Danny Noonan, "Well... we're waiting!"
- The Evil Closet Monkey does not make an appearance in this episode.
