Details have been scarce regarding Seth Green and Matthew Senreich’s (creators of Robot Chicken) upcoming Star Wars spinoff series, Star Wars: Detours, but now that has all changed, thanks to a panel they held at Star Wars Celebration VI, the latest Star Wars convention currently happening in Orlando, Florida this weekend.
The show was first announced over two years ago, with StarWars.com making the official announcement, and George Lucas himself vaguely discussing it later that year at Celebration V. The only details known at the time were that the show, then titled Squishies, would appeal to all ages, and utilize characters from all corners of the Star Wars universe to tell comedic stories dealing with “normal, mundane everyday problems.”
Yesterday, the Star Wars Detours Facebook page was unveiled, and today the first trailer and clips from the new animated TV show that were shown at Star Wars Celebration VI have now made their way online for all to enjoy. Hit the jump to watch!
Update: Three More Clips have made their way online, and are now available to watch after the jump as well.
No word yet as to when the show will debut, or what TV network it will be on, so stay tuned as further details emerge!

Seth Green says that Detours won’t be vignettes, but rather there will be continuing story lines & character development.
So, this will not be just like the Star Wars episodes of Robot Chicken…
