The Official Star Wars Blog is BACK!

By: Ciaran Duggan
The Official Star Wars Blog is back in the force of business and there have been a few new and exciting changes on the way. Star Wars Blog have enhanced the experience for the Star wars fan community and down below are some of the new features available on the Official blog and here is the message proclaimed for what they hope and plan to do in the future:

So, what do you want to see around here? During the break, many of you shared your ideas and suggestions, and told us what you’d like to see the blog focus on – and while we weren’t able to respond to everyone, we were listening, reading and discussing every single comment.

Great. So what happens now? We thought you’d never ask! (But we’re glad you did, because this is the part we’re excited to share.) Starting today, we’re thrilled to announce a few big changes.

First, you’re going to see a lot more faces around here. Starting this afternoon, the Star Wars Blog will become a true group effort, with more than a dozen regular writers from both inside and outside of Lucasfilm, representing a huge range of interests and perspectives on Star Wars and fandom. On top of that, we’ve also invited a galaxy (pardon the pun) of guest bloggers to write in.

Second, we want to bring you stories you can’t find anywhere else. We want to give you much deeper access to Star Wars. Without ruining all of the surprises we’ve lined up, here’s some of what you can expect moving forward:
  • Supervising Director Dave Filoni will be sharing insights and stories from behind-the-scenes of The Clone Wars, along with other cast and crew.
  • We’re going to open up the Lucasfilm archives, with J.W. Rinzler and others sharing never-before-seen images, videos and stories from the making of the films.
  • Resident Star Wars experts Pablo Hidalgo and Leland Chee will be sharing details about the Expanded Universe and answering your questions.
  • Lucasfilm Events Coordinator Mary Franklin will share stories from behind-the-scenes as we get ready for events like ComicCon and Celebration VI.
We’re also planning to introduce you to the creative leads of upcoming video game projects like Star Wars 1313, the authors and artists behind Star Wars EU books and comics, the designers who make the most-coveted Star Wars collectibles, and more.

And, just as important are the stories from outside Lucasfilm, so we’re proud to say that our bloggers also include super-collectors and experts like Steve Sansweet, members of fan communities like the 501st Legion, artists like Katie Cook, and many, many more.

Third, we’re going to experiment… and we need your help. We’re trying to do something new. We’re going to explore a lot of new possibilities, and as a result, we’re going to figure out what works as we go along. We won’t get everything right, at least not right away.

One thing to say about the Official Star Wars Blog is that they sure do care about the Star Wars community, as they want the fans to collaborate and discuss things together, including sharing their favorite Star Wars stories.

With your help, suggestions and feedback, The Official Star Wars Blog can give you (as fans) what you want and respond to them as best as they can, so give them as many comments as possible and remember that the force will be with the Star Wars Blog…always.
