STAR WARS Roundup: Seth Green On DETOURS, Final CLONE WARS Episodes Announced And More
A year ago it was announced that Seth Green was working on a comedy/sitcom Star Wars animated series called Detours. Shortly after things were getting finalized, it was announced that Disney had bought Lucasfilm and was working on new movies. That threw a wrench in the works for Green‘s project. After some discussions with Kathleen Kennedy about the future of Star Wars, the duo decided that it would be in the best interest for the Star Wars universe if they held off on Detours. Seth Green has said that he agreed with the decision, but in a new interview with IGN during New York Comic Con (which you can watch below) he said he does believe we will get to see the series sometime in the near future. After the movies come out he may get a chance to show off his work, but he said that Detours is willing to wait as long as it takes since they currently have 39 episodes finished.
On the Star Wars: Clone Wars front, fans will be happy to hear that the final episodes have been announced. Producer/director Dave Filoni took to his Facebook to make the announcement ahead of today’s Star Wars: Rebels panel:
Star Wars fans – I have some exciting news! We have wrapped production on all of the remaining Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes, and while that might be sad news in one way, it’s good news in another. It means you will finally get to see them. When, exactly, is a detail I cannot yet share. I can confirm that in early 2014 you will be watching the final episodes of The Clone Wars, including one of Master Yoda’s most challenging missions. So, get ready. We’ve got Clone Wars and Rebels coming at you in 2014. Animated Star Wars is alive and well. Trust in the Force my friends.
There’s no word on where or how the episodes will be released, but it probably won’t be on Cartoon Network. The series will wrap up next year though. We’ll just have to wait and see how we can view the episodes.
And finally, the official Star Wars YouTube channel posted a better quality version of the trailer for Star Wars (what is now) Episode IV. It’s been out there for a while, but now it’s in a better quality. I guess the Star Wars folks are starting to try and get people into the original trilogy mindset while we anxiously await news on J.J. Abrams’ Episode VII.
