Star Wars Detours is an upcoming animated television series that features a comedic look at the Star Wars universe. On March 11, 2013, Lucasfilm announced that it had postponed the series in order to concentrate on Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens.[4]

PremiseEdit

Star Wars Detours is an animated comedy that explores what daily life is like in a galaxy far, far away. There are no Empires striking back or attacking clones here. Instead, Star Wars Detours focuses on the universe's regular folks and their everyday problems... which, to be fair, do frequently involve famous bounty hunters, crazed Ewoks, and even a Dark Lord of the Sith. Welcome to Star Wars: Detours: the other side of the stars, between the wars.[5]

The series takes place between the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, and is set in three general locations: Coruscant, the Death Star and Tatooine. Episodes are divided into three six-minute segments.[6]

DevelopmentEdit

"I've had a lot of parents approach me in the last few years where they showed Robot Chicken or Family Guy Star Wars before they showed them regular Star Wars. The writers on Robot Chicken and I are seeing this a lot. The same way we were introduced to classic music through Bugs Bunny or Tom & Jerry, kids are taking our ironic interpretations of He-Man or other pop culture icons and never having the opportunity to meet them sincerely. It's a really bizarre thing to wrap your head around, and because I've witnessed it firsthand, it made me more thoughtful about what we were putting it out."
Seth Green[src]

George Lucas revealed in June 2009 that a new Star Wars animated series was in development.[7] On April 5, 2010, StarWars.com officially revealed that the series was in production by Lucasfilm Animation, and that it would be a comedy.[8] Writers were hired from various TV series, including The Simpsons, Family Guy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, SpongeBob SquarePants and The Daily Show.[2] Some of the animated work on the series was done by The Monk Studio, a visual effects and animation studio located in Thailand, which also worked on the film Strange Magic for Lucasfilm.[9]

On March 11, 2013, Lucasfilm announced that the series had been postponed in light of the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens and the release of the sequel trilogy.[4] At MegaCon 2014, the Robot Chicken creators reaffirmed that Star Wars Detours will be released at some point, with more than thirty planned episodes.[10]

ContinuityEdit

According to Holocron continuity database administrator Leland Chee, the series is classified as D canon.[11]
