Star Wars Detours is a cancelled[1] American computer-animated comic science fiction television series produced by Lucasfilm Animation in collaboration with Robot Chicken creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich.[2][3]

Production[edit]

The series was announced at Star Wars Celebration VI in summer 2012.[4] In March 2013, Lucasfilm postponed Detours while they reconsidered whether releasing a comedy series prior to the sequels "makes sense".[5] That September, Green said 39 episodes had been completed, with 62 additional scripts finished.[6]

The series was intended to be set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Voice actors that were involved in the show included Dee Bradley Baker, Abraham Benrubi, Ahmed Best as Jar Jar Binks, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Felicia Day, Donald Faison, Nat Faxon, Seth Green as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jennifer Hale, Zachary Levi, Joel McHale, Breckin Meyer, Dan Milano, Cree Summer, Catherine Taber as Princess Leia, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Grey DeLisle, and Seth MacFarlane as Palpatine. Dan Milano, Tom Root, Zeb Wells, Doug Goldstein, Breckin Meyer, Kevin Shinick, David A. Goodman, Michael Price, and Jane Espenson are writers; Brendan Hay serves as head writer.[4]
