‘Star Wars: Detours’ is an animated comedy which the Lucasfilms announced in 2012 as a part of Star Wars Celebration. But, the project slipped into development hell afterwards. According to reports, the series explores mundane chores of the universe’s civilian folks. In their tiny worlds, there are no galaxy wars, no Empires to strike back or no attacking clones. Instead, the series focuses on the common people in the universe and their everyday problems. But, however silly they are compared to the Empire and clones, those problems pose threats in the form of rude bounty hunters, crazed Ewoks and a Dark Lord of the Sith. As the tagline of ‘Star Wars: Detours‘ rightly implies, ‘it is the other side of the stars, between the wars.

But, after Disney bought Lucasfilm in a billion dollar deal, the new parent company pulled the plug of the series and the 39 episodes ready to air went onto oblivion. Now that Disney is unleashing the full potential of ‘Star Wars’ with the Disney+ streaming service, ‘Star Wars: Detours’ may get a second turn.
