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?
Star Wars: Detours
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.'
