Party Like It's 1977: Star Wars News

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trade News | August 27, 2012 | Comments ()


In a perfect storm of news nobody wants, Star Wars: Episode II and Episode III will be re-released September 20th and October 11, 2013, respectively. And get this, the point of the re-release is that they will be in 3D. Guess what you get when you combine two terrible tastes that no one likes? It turns out that the answer isn't Reeses, but is in fact a turd sandwich that brilliantly uses urinal cakes for bread. Terrible movies that had the sole redeeming quality of demonstrating why we should be happy that Lucas never made sequels to the original trilogy with the original cast, those can really only be improved by being put through a process that makes them too dark to clearly see and with a nausea inducing third dimension thrusting Hayden Christensen's cod piece out at your eyes.

But there is good Star Wars news. In the wake of the "Robot Chicken" Star Wars skits, Seth Green is getting to make a Star Wars themed television series called "Star Wars: Detours." It takes place before the first film of the (only) trilogy. Here's the trailer for the series:

Still no word on where the series will air, or when, but it has a Facebook page, so you know it's legit.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I wish we would get that serious Star Wars television series instead of this eternal parade of parodies. I like a good parody and all, but at a certain point I just get parody fatigue.

  • John G.

    And George surveyed all the land he could see, a great vista of deep dug holes. Surely there was more, more treasure to be found, if he only kept digging.

  • space_oddity

    So... why are they all bobbleheads?

  • csb


  • So...Robot Chicken Star Wars in CGI: The Series?

  • Dragonchild

    I grok the prequel hate but the "Detours" trailer was a disappointment. I'm a big Robot Chicken fan so the disappointment was that much worse.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    Grok is a word that does not get enough mileage.

  • BarbadoSlim

    Good this looks, uhum.


  • John W

    Hopefully they're going digitally insert Jar Jar into more scenes because that would be awesome.

  • Guest

    Meesa back!

  • TK

    Meesa fucking hate you.

  • Guest

    Hey, hate is a strong word.

  • TK


    But it's the right word.

  • Guest

    Do you hate Jar Jar Binks or me? Because I'm confused here.

  • David Sorenson

    Do a Jar Jar impression and get hated. It's in the bible. Somewhere. Like on page 35 or something.

  • Guest

    I wasn't quite aware of that. They really need to make that a more public rule. And I wasn't aware Jar Jar was a publicly hated figure

  • marya

    You didn't know Jar Jar was hated?

    Welcome back to civilization! How was that desert island? Thirteen years is a long time to be marooned. Eat any fellow castaways?

  • David Sorenson

    He's so hated that I truly believe that the character will bring about world peace. Hatred of Jar Jar Binks is the one common thing that every human, regardless of race or religion, can agree on.

    That's why George Lucas created the character. It was his dream to unite the planet by creating a character so annoying that everyone could unite under a banner of pure hatred. And all this time y'all been tearing him down because of it. I hope you are all happy. Ingrates.

  • Snath

    I'll watch anything that includes more Dengar and Bossk.

  • hapl0

    It was meh until the Windu joke so I'll watch it but please set a season limit.

    I don't want to force myself to watch season 7 out of some misplaced loyalty.
