With Star Wars Celebration VI currently happening in Florida, expect a whole bunch of random Star Wars-related announcements to arrive this weekend, beginning with the first trailer for Seth Green and Matt Grimes' new animated show, Detours. As you can see from the preview, the Robot Chicken creators were given the use of the entire Star Wars universe and all six films, and what they came up with looks sorta like an animated Star Wars sitcom, with the characters you all know and love -- Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader -- referencing things from the movies, but in a more comedic way.
The fellas have also moved away from the Robot Chicken format with this being straight animation that makes slight, humorous changes to the characters that fans will either love or be all whatever about. Definitely not as cool or badass as Clone Wars, and not as risky as Robot Chicken, Detours looks to fall in between the two. If you dig slapsticky Star Wars references, you should find plenty to devour here.
In addition to the trailer, here are two clips:
Let us know what you think. Detours currently does not have a premiere date.
Star Wars Detours™ is an animated comedy that explores what daily life is like in a galaxy far, far away. There are no Empires striking back or attacking clones here. Instead, Star Wars Detours focuses on the universe's regular folks and their everyday problems... which, to be fair, do frequently involve famous bounty hunters, crazed Ewoks, and even a Dark Lord of the Sith.
Welcome to Star Wars: Detours: the other side of the stars, between the wars.
