Star Wars Detours co-creator says Lucasfilm has no interest in releasing a series
Disney may have given Star Wars fans some unexpected entries into the franchise in recent years thanks to Disney +, but if you’re hoping to see the official release of Star Wars detours, co-creator Seth Green has the disappointing update that there isn’t enough interest in releasing the series at this point that it seems unlikely to happen. To date, all fans of the series have seen teases that were projected during a panel at Star Wars Celebration in 2012, with Green also noting that the series would likely already be dated and in need of an overhaul before it was released. be unveiled to the public.
“The most recent conversations I have had with someone who would be able to tell say it’s not soon,” Green revealed to Weekly entertainment.
At the time the series was made, Lucasfilm had no plans to develop any new live-action films in the series, allowing Detours serve as a comic entry into the galaxy far, far away, which fully embraced Green’s sense of humor Robot Chicken series. Since Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm, the studio has claimed they don’t want to release satire on the franchise when it may be the series’ first introduction to some audiences, leading to confusion. as to the general tone of the franchise.
“Well, there are 39 episodes that have been completed for airing,” Green detailed. “But we finished them almost 10 years ago, so it would have to reconfigure the existing elements a bit to make it something that Disney + would release as a Lucasfilm offering. And the way it was explained to me. is that there has not been there has not been enough interest to review what it would take to publish it, and that there is no interest in publishing this content on Disney + from Lucasfilm. “
He added: “I don’t really have an emotional position because I’ve spent four straight years doing something with George Lucas. And my partner and I, and all the people who worked on it – the artists and the actors and directors and animators – we all have to do something Star Wars with the guy who made it. And so I know in those four years he’s been having fun, and that’s really all that I care about the truest heroes, and I got to see him laugh and appreciate all the things he created, before he agreed to sell them to someone else. “
Earlier this year, several Star Wars TV dramas and lesser-known TV series debuted on the service under the “Star Wars Vintage” umbrella, leaving many to hope that this was just the start of official releases regarding the obscure entries of the movie. franchise.
Even though the series included appearances from Star Wars actors like Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, and Ahmed Best, Green doesn’t bemoan the fact that Detours might never be seen by the public.
“I probably can’t confirm or deny [any names], but you literally wouldn’t believe the people who worked on this project in every category, “Green confessed.” It’s not that I don’t care if people never see it, it’s just that it doesn’t really matter if no one ever sees it, because no one can take any of it from any of us. And that sort of thing would never happen again, and I admit that. “
