Star Wars Celebration was held this weekend and this big news was a brand new Star Wars tv show, but not the one you were looking for. DETOURS is an animated comedy version of the Star Wars universe from the Robot Chicken team of Todd Grimes, Seth Green & Matt Senreich. The show will be set between Episodes 3 and 4 and, in Green’s words “None of this is making fun of Star Wars, but more just thinking about what the Star Wars version of life is like!”
And here’s the trailer.
To be honest, we couldn’t finished this, but then we’re on vacation. However, as with Vader and Son, George Lucas is now so used to seeing his creations used for comedic effect that he’s taking over that end of the business as well.
Star Wars is everywhere.
