Indiana Jones Site has a pop-up ad that announces Star Wars.com
is starting a new feature called "Jump to Hyperspace" that
will debut on June 10. There will be a sneak preview of this new
feature between June 5-9. Could this be the new pay-per-view section
that we have been hearing about recently? Having a sneak preview
might suggest you may have to pay for it, and it is a good way to
get you hooked on the material.
I really wish they would not do this! If this is truly the paid
subscription service, it will coincide with the start of principle
photography and the end of pre-production in Australia. A paid
subscription will surly mean less Episode III news for the fans due
to copyright laws, unless of course you are willing to shell out the
dollars for an Episode III fix. I will not be able to afford yet
another Star Wars expense for a new feature like this, and it is a
shame that we have come to this.
