Here’s the first trailer for Star Wars Detours, Lucasfilm’s newest animated (and first comedic) Star Wars TV series. According to Wookieepedia, the show explores daily life in a galaxy far, far away and focuses on the universe’s regular folk and their everyday problems.
Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, of Robot Chicken fame, are involved and the show will feature the voices of Queen of the Internets Felicia Day, Seth Green, Seth MacFarlane (as the Emperor), Joel McHale, Donald Faison and even original Star Wars actors such as Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels and Ahmed Best.
It might not be to everyone’s tastes but the PR Team can’t wait. If this isn’t “your” vision of Star Wars, or detracts from your enjoyment of the original trilogy somehow in some way, that’s totally cool but the solution is simple: don’t watch. The rest of us will have fun watching Obi-Wan bomb as a stand-up comedian and enjoy the origins of Admiral Ackbar’s trap-related vocal stylings.
We just have two questions for you, Seth Green: When is the PR team’s episode? And when are we going to be asked to join the writing team? (Call us. Seriously.)
