George Lucas will be teaming up with ‘Robot Chicken’ creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich to release a new comedy animated series based on the ‘Star Wars’ film franchise.

Called ‘Star Wars Detours’ the series will feature the original trilogy heroes and explore “what the daily life is like in a galaxy far, far away”, according to the producers.

“There is no Empires striking back or attacking clones here. Instead, ‘Star Wars Detours’ focuses on the universe’s regular folks and their everyday problems…which, to be fair, do frequently involve famous bounty hunters, crazed Ewoks, and even a Dark Lord of the Sith.”

‘Star Wars Detours’ will be set between the events of Episode III and Episode IV, with a completely comedic take on the ‘Star Wars’ universe.

From the trailer below, the new animated series looks to be quite funny and entertaining.

‘Star Wars’ fans—what do you think?
