StarWars.com Removes Fan/Collecting Sites Section

Back in 2014, StarWars.com relaunched with a brand new site which had a dedicated section for Fan News and Blog Sites, Fan Collecting Sites and Fan Podcasts. Jake Stevens from From 4-LOM to Zuckuss noticed that those sections now have all been removed from their Community page and replaced with a statement as follows:

Notice: Lucasfilm Ltd. strives to foster an inclusive, diverse and safe environment for our fans and we ask the same of our fan community.

No word yet if these sections will be returning. Until then, you can click on through to check out a screen shot of the section as it once looked.

SWAN Episode 502: Everything is Under Control. Situation Normal. But we’re all fine here, now. How are you?

Spoiler Warning – We hold nothing back on any Star Wars movie, book, or show.

Star Wars fans were used to delayed gratification. Under George Lucas the pattern was one movie every three years. It took 27 years for the first six films to complete.  Now, though, it’s a much different time as Solo–the fourth Star Wars film in under three years–came out. But can there be too much of a good thing?

The Star Wars Action News crew is back! Join Marjorie, Justin, Chris, Andrew, Jerry, and Arnie for this SPOILER FILLED discussion of Solo and Star Wars movies in general!

Listen to this review, then head to Now Playing Podcast to hear Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart’s in-depth analysis of the film!
