Lucasfilm trademarks STAR WARS DETOURS

As reported by CVG:

Quote:
Ever heard of Star Wars Detours? Neither had we until today - but it looks like it could be LucasArts' next major video game spin-off.

Parent company LucasFilm has this week filed a US trademark for the Detours name - which locks down the rights to its use in interactive entertainment.
Quote:
LucasFilm has filed two separate TMs, with the second suggesting Detours could grow to become a major franchise for the company. It references everything from children's books to pencil cases, T-shirts, comics and more.
Detours, eh? I'm not sure this is the detour I was looking for though. Only time will tell I guess.

Hmm, what the deuce could this be? Sight seeing on your favorite Star Wars planets via a 3DTV and Natal or something? Is LucasArts that lame already?


Nevermind.

As well as "pre-recorded audio tapes, video tapes, CD-ROMs, DVDs, compact discs, and video discs", the trademark also references "computer games, animation and music; computer game software; computer game software and manuals sold as a unit; computer video game software; computer video game software and manuals sold as a unit; interactive video game programs; interactive computer game programs, downloadable computer game software, downloadable interactive entertainment software for playing computer games and downloadable interactive entertainment software for playing video games. Oh, and sports helmets.
I'm interested. Lame name, though.

Lucas does generic indie road movie?

The holidaying Skywalker family, forced by roadworks to detour along country-roads, must face the detours that their lives have taken from their aspirations?

Yeah that's what I thought, his work on the Robot Chicken Star Wars thing was phenomenal, best Star Wars related comedy I have ever seen.
If that's what it is I'm peeing myself with excitement, if not, meh...

I think it's for when there is work being done on the star tours star wars ride, and as such, you are required to take a different route on the tour...

Hopefully that means that you'll still be allowed to take the old ride. It's a motion simulator for **** sake, it's not like it takes up a lot of space. I'd rather have nostalgia destroyed by prequel bull****.

Incredibly so, but it sounds like Lucasfilm is expecting this Detours to cash millions on licensed merchandise, that's for certain.
