Star Wars Detours a Star Wars Show for Children – FINALLY!
Robot Chicken is one of my favorite shows. I love that they take popular culture and poke fun at it. Well the creators of Robot Chicken are at it again. This time instead of stop animation made for adults, they are making an animated series based on Star Wars, called Star Wars Detours. Even better yet, it is being made for all ages. See the trailer and one of the clips below.
Personally, I think it looks HILARIOUS! I love the idea that it will be for all ages, and it will be nice to have a Star Wars cartoon that the Geekling can watch with us. I know that a lot of Star Wars fans are turning their nose up at this show, but I hope they will give it a chance. Star Wars Detours will open the Star Wars universe to a new generation, which in my opinion is AWESOME! Plus even if it is a more kiddie show, so what…. Parents have to watch these cartoon shows with our kids and I would rather watch a show like Star Wars Detours, where I can at least chuckle now and then – Than a show that is like nails on a chalk board after the 20th episode – Yes I am looking at YOU Dora…..or Steve from Blues Clues…..can you tell what the Geekling is obsessing on at the moment?
I love that the Star Wars Detours characters are so cute. (Even the Storm Troopers are hugable) As of now, there is no information on when it will air or even what network will air it, but I am sure we will find out in the near future. I, for one, can’t wait to see the first episode of Star Wars Detours, I think it will be a big hit. I am also excited to see what the merchandise for the show will look like… I would love a Storm Trooper, women’s t-shirt. Heck I would love to decorate my son’s whole room in Star Wars Detours…Hear that Lucas (his money senses should be tingling now) my son’s WHOLE room. I think it would look awesome!
You can see more clips here, http://www.starwars.com/watch/detours/ …. and I am sure they will update the site as to when and where Star Wars Detours will air. I will also keep you updated as more information come available.
