Hey Star Wars fans, it’s been a while since you’ve had something new to debate, hasn’t it? Well Georgie-boy and his empire are here to fix that! Today at Star Wars Celebration VI, a trailer for an upcoming new animated comedy show was released, titled Star Wars Detours. So far, it seems fan reactions are very mixed—it’s well known that many fans have lost faith in Lucas after the prequel trilogy, so a comedy-based animated series most likely seems like the worst idea in the galaxy to those fledgling fans. I, however, think this looks promising and has potential to be a hilarious cult-status show—even though a few scenes are, admittedly, very cheesy. I love that this series pokes fun at the films though, and having Seth Green and the crew from Robot Chicken involved only sweetens the deal. And who doesn’t love Breckin Meyer’s Boba Fett?!
Check out the trailer below, and feel free to chime in with your preliminary thoughts on the new series. I’d love to hear what you guys have to say.
