Much like the Death Star construction Robot Chicken creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich have been slaving away to create a new Star Wars animated series.
The show has the tag line, "the other side of the stars, between the wars," and is described on it's Facebook page as:
"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."
Amy Ratcliffe (@Amy_Geek) had the recap of the panel for the Official Starwars.com Blog:
"Todd Grimes, Seth Green, and Matt Senreich explained that the series takes place in three different environments: the Death Star under construction, Tatooine – especially Jabba’s palace, and Dex’s Diner on Coruscant. Each location comes with its own set of characters and stories, and they shared clips for each place. Their enthusiasm for the project was contagious. They talked excitedly about everything from Billy Dee Williams voicing Lando to their version of Rotta the Hutt (he’s a surly teenager in the series). It has to be amazing for them to finally share the project they’ve been working on so long."StarWars.com's Official Youtube Channel has six preview clips from the series up. Robot Chicken fans may recognize some of the voices.
