The long-lost animated series known as Star Wars: Detours may be coming soon to Disney+.
Most diehard Star Wars fans know that before Disney acquired Lucasfilm, creator George Lucas was working on one of his last known projects — Star Wars: Detours. Once Disney acquired the galaxy far, far away, the series was canceled to focus on the announced sequel trilogy. Although dozens of episodes were already completed beforehand, it was chalked up as a lost cause.
However, according to The Vulcan Reporter, the series may finally be getting its just deserts. The site reports that Detours could hit Disney+ as early as next month on May 4, a.k.a. Star Wars Day.
This comes just weeks after scooper Jordan Maison reportedly heard about Detours hitting Disney+ in the future.
Detours is quite different from its well-known counterparts like Rebels or The Clone Wars. The animation style is more quirky, aimed at a much younger audience. The series was co-created by Robot Chicken‘s Brendan Hay with original cast members such as Ahmed Best, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams reprising their roles. Additionally, other notable cast members included Seth Green, Seth MacFarlane, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Zachary Levi, Joel McHale, Nat Faxon, Felicia Day, and Donald Faison.
