Star Wars Detours: Lucasfilm purchases trademark for new comedic animated series


Lucasfilm purchases a trademark for Star Wars Detours, hinting that a new animated series is on the way. An idea from that was thought to be long gone…

Who says that Star Wars and Lucasfilm are letting the past die? If you remember all the way back a long time ago to Star Wars Celebration 2012, you might recall an idea for an animated series titled Star Wars Detours. The series idea spawned from Seth Green and Matthew Senreich of Robot Chicken, with Star Wars Detours providing a comedic taste like never before seen in a galaxy far, far away.

According to reports from, Star Wars Detours already has 40 episodes created, with 30 of such ready for immediate release. Ironically, Disney/Lucasfilm recently purchased the trademark for Star Wars Detours. Ironic, don’t you think? A little too ironic, yeah I really do think.

There’s even a trailer for Star Wars Detours, released all the way back in 2012 at Star Wars Celebration. Check it out!

Doesn’t this look amazing? I cannot stop laughing.

As of now, Lucasfilm has not made an official announcement for the release/reboot of Star Wars Detours, but with the purchase of said trademark, it’s only a matter of time.

The same rang true when Lucasfilm bought the trademark for Star Wars Resistance, with an announcement for the series following shortly afterward. also reports that during the initial announcement (2012) for Star Wars Detours, no other Star Wars films were made public, but after Disney‘s acquisition of Lucasfilm, such merger undoubtedly pushed back any progress for this comedic animated series.

The upcoming Disney streaming service paves the way for fun and different Star Wars adventures, such as Star Wars Detours — and maybe a Donald Glover directed/written/acted Lando Calrissian live-action television series? But, I digress.

Star Wars Detours is an incredible idea, and if it indeed gets the green light from Lucasfilm/Disney, it will open the floodgates for a variety of Star Wars series and possibly streaming series films — much like Netflix currently does with great success.

Be patient my young Padawans. Disney/Lucasfilm has much in store for us if we give them time. Star Wars Detours would be the perfect way to kick-off Disney’s new streaming project,  boldly going where now Star Wars story has gone before.
