Seth Green and Matt Senreich, the creators of Robot Chicken, have just given the world a sneak peak at their new animated comedy series, Star Wars Detours.
"Lucas was sitting at a desk and said, ‘You guys think you're pretty ****ing funny, don't you?'" Green remembers. "'So, how about we do something funny together?'"
As of right now, there are no details on premiere dates or even a home network for the show.
Given the lighthearted interpretation of many well-established and coveted characters, the series is sure to elicit some strong and polarized reactions from fans. Check out the trailer:

I'll be the first to criticize Lucas for many things, the new trilogy sucked, Han shot first dammit, he ruined the new Indiana Jones, etc. But, the way I see it, the Robot Chicken guys wanted to do a Star Wars spoof. Lucas gave it the OK. If he'd said no, we might be discussing how big of a **** he is right now for refusing. If the show isn't for you, don't watch.
I'm a die hard fan of Star Wars for over 30 years and this is annoying crap. This show looks like it was made for retarded kids between the ages of 2 and 5.
Star Wars is win.
Robot Chicken Star Wars Special is win.
Gotta go with: A)
