Seems like this Star Wars fad is sticking around.
Today at Star Wars Celebration VI, Robot Chicken creators Seth Green and Matt Senreich, along with their collaborator Todd Grimes, unveiled footage from their new animated series Star Wars: Detours. The series takes place between between Episode III and IV, and of course, Green, Senreich and Grimes have taken comedic liberty with the entire Star Wars universe, with George Lucas' blessing of course.
Senreich told fans the story behind the series, saying they got a call from Lucas' people and he immediately thought they were getting sued for developing Star Wars: Detours.
"Lucas was sitting at a desk and said, ‘You guys think you're pretty fucking funny, don't you?'" Green remembers. "'So, how about we do something funny together?'"
As of right now, there are no details on premiere dates or even a home network for the show. But have a first look at Star Wars: Detours below, and then head to the comments and hit us with your initial reactions.
