Welcome to Star Wars: Detours: the other side of the stars, between the wars. Technically it takes place between Episodes 3 and 4..if you keep track of such stuff.
It's the brain child of the Robot Chicken crew who just happen to be massive Star Wars fans. The cast includes Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, Ahmed Best, Seth MacFarlane, Jennifer Hale, Dee Bradley Baker, Joel McHale, Nat Faxon, Cree Summers, Felicia Day, Abraham Benrubi, Weird Al Yankovic, Zachary Levi, Donald Faison and most definitely Breckin Meyer & Seth Green.
What more do you need to know?! I'm sold. Here's some eye candy!
...and some advertisements from the Detoursiverse...
...And a couple of the characters (including the Ewok Major Fufu) at Star Wars Celebration this past weekend...sort of...
And now that you're drooling and twitching like a scalper with the only case of new Marvel Legends for a 100 mile radius, here's the trailer and some clips!! WARNING: You are going to laugh...a lot..well ..depending on how big of a Star Wars geek you are ..and how much you love the humor in Robot Chicken..so if both are true, you're screwed, so keep that in mind if watching at work!
No drop date yet (though early 2013 looks good) or network announced (though we are sure Cartoon Network got first dibs and would NOT kick this one out of bed) but we'll keep you posted! This is only the beginning.
NOTE: Please hold all frantic rants about how you neeeeed toys from this til February. Hasbro is aware. Thank you.
