It wasn’t a long time ago or a galaxy far, far away. (It was 2012. In Orlando.) That was the site of the sixth Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm’s semiannual convention for all things Jedi. The 2012 edition of the four-day nerdstravaganza included autograph signings, photo ops, Star Wars speed dating, droid races, and something called the “Super-Secret Star Wars Panel with Todd, Seth, and Matt.” “Todd” was animator and director Todd Grimes; “Matt” was Matthew Senreich and “Seth” was Seth Green, the co-creators of the stop-motion animated sketch show Robot Chicken. Their secret: The announcement of a Star Wars television series set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope called Star Wars: Detours.

While these days seem to bring a new 'Star Wars: Episode 7' casting rumor every other day, it was only a few months ago that Lucasfilm had planned to roll out several new offerings, including 'Robot Chicken' creator Seth Green's 'Star Wars: Detours.' The announcement of new films and the Disney takeover led to shelving the comedic take on 'Star Wars' mythology, but how far into production had the series gotten, and is there a chance we'll ever see it again?

We felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' fans suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. Indeed 'Star Wars' fans likely knew that Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm could have some unique consequences with regard to the existing TV properties, most notably Cartoon Network's acclaimed 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars.' Now, it seems Disney has decided to pull the plug on 'Clone Wars' and shelve existing plans for Seth Green's 'Star Wars: Detours,' but is there a new hope on the horizon yet?

By the time 'Star Trek: Enterprise' was cancelled after four seasons, it was if the world said "Hey guys, until you have something new or interesting to offer us, please go away." It was the best thing to happen to the franchise, as 'Trek' was rebooted and became a hit movie. 'Star Wars' should learn from that, especially after you watch this trailer for 'Star Wars: Detours.'
