The Robot Chicken guys have probably the best place to be if you're a Star Wars fan and working in the 'hood. With an inside connection to George Lucas already established through three Star Wars: Robot Chicken specials (they got the blessing of The Lucas as well as Lucasfilm for 'em), and the creative teeth cut on parodying the Star Wars universe, it makes sense for them to want to spend more time in that galaxy from long ago.
Surprisingly, Lucasfilm has agreed with Robot Chicken creators Seth Green and Matt Senrich. The two entities have partnered again to make a new CG series called Star Wars: Detours. After watching the first three trailers showing what we can expect to see in the show, if you enjoyed the satire and humor from the Robot Chicken Star Wars specials, then you may like what Star Wars: Detours has in store for you.
The voice talent are all regulars from the Star Wars: Robot Chicken specials, including Family Guy's Seth Macfarlane coming back to speak The Emperor's dialogue. The show is supposed to focus on the normal people living in the Star Wars universe and not so much on Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and the other main characters from the two prequel movie series, although you could never tell that if you watched the trailers.
Hey, I'm all for Star Wars: Detours. The franchise needs new blood, and maybe this is the first signs that Lucas is relinquishing more artistic freedom for others to play in the Star Wars universe.
An exact release date for Star Wars: Detours wasn't given.
