The Official StarWars.com Blog has announced their triumphant return to the main site with some contributor changes, a pledge to be the best it can be, and a call out to fans for feedback. So what can we, as fans, expect from the revamped blog?
"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."
And it looks as though the one and only Steve Sansweet has already written a bit of an introduction to that which he will be contributing in the not-too-distant future. As always, we'll be sure to keep you posted!
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
