In a galaxy far, far away, before the House of Mouse owned the rights to Star Wars there was a new project by George Lucas title Star Wars: Detours. Even though there were many episodes made, it was canceled after the Disney take over. That’s when the focus became the Sequel Trilogy instead. After all this time it seemed like there was very little hope for Star Wars: Detours to see the light of day and many people even forgot about it until a six-minute episode titled “Dog Day Afternoon” was leaked onto the internet. Well, today there are some rumors out there that Detours could be finally released on Disney+ in May!

Star Wars Detours

According to a report from The Vulcan Reporter, we can expect the Star Wars: Detours series to hit Disney+ next month, possibly on May 4th (Star Wars Day). Here is what was reported from The Vulcan Reporter:

“The Vulcan Reporter has learned that Disney plans to (finally) release the Star Wars: Detours animated series on its Disney+ streaming service”, they would as report, “While we do not know when Disney plans to release the series on its streaming service, we do know that around 52 episodes and specials have fully finished production. It is likely that Star Wars: Detours is planned as a surprise release on May 4, 2021”.

So as of now none of this as been confirmed by Disney but is definitely worth keeping a eye on.
