Seth Green’s “Star Wars Detours” is Blowing up Like a Death Star
By A Real Person on August 24, 2012
We’ve heard rumblings for a while that Seth Green was going to be involved in a comedy series set in the Star Wars universe, and attendees of Star Wars Celebration VI just got a surprise first look at Star Wars Detours. It seems that after viewing all the various parodies out there, like on Robot Chicken and Family Guy, George Lucas decided to bring his own version to the table, and as the clip full of super-deformed spoofs makes clear, he’s happy to allow all sorts of irreverent mockery. Hell, even Ahmed Best voices his notorious Gungan goofball in a skit making fun of everybody hating Jar Jar.
Like the newly revamped Star Tours ride, Star Wars Detours is set between trilogies, allowing characters and worlds from both to appear: in addition to Best, Billy Dee Williams will be returning to the role of Lando, while Anthony Daniels voices Threepio. Other regular voice cast members will include Donald Faison, Felicia Day, and “Weird Al” Yankovic.
There’s already an official Facebook page up with even more exclusive clips, as well as introductions to two original characters – the incompetent Stormtroopers Super Ace and Killer. What we don’t have yet is an official release date, which makes us as impatient as a farm boy staring at a dual sunset.
