Party Like It's 1977: Star Wars News

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.
