Take everything you know about Star Wars, ball it up and throw it in the trash. Darth Vader was never mean; he was a rapper. Obi-Wan Kenobi was never stoic; he did stand-up comedy. Han Solo was never a scoundrel; he was a dancer. The Emperor was never evil; he was a chick magnet. Confused? You will be. You. Will. Be.

Star Wars: Detours is an upcoming animated comedy, created by Seth Green and Matt Senreich of Robot Chicken fame, featuring all your favorite Star Wars characters in situations so totally out of character and tone for the series, it makes the Prequels look good. A trailer has just come online featuring bad references, kiddie humor and the kind of bastardizing, canon-crushing images that’ll make you bow down to the Prequels for their wit, logic and flawless, Star Wars storytelling. It’s this generation’s Star Wars Christmas Special. If you dare, watch it after the jump. Read More »
