The Future of Hyperspace

Fans across the galaxy have enjoyed the exciting news and behind the scenes goodies that are offered by being an official Star Wars fan via's Hyperspace. In Monday's release of Delta Source there is a small article ensuring fans that although Revenge of the Sith will complete the movie saga, Hyperspace will continue to bring out-of-this-world content in its up-comming third season, as reiterated here directly from the source:

Exclusive Video Hyperspace has brought its members Episode III webdocs, trailer previews, exclusive convention video, DVD previews and other surprises. With the secrets of the final Star Wars film revealed to the public this May, look for regular new Hyperspace-exclusive video with the perspective of the entire saga, archive secrets, plus looks ahead to the future of Star Wars.

Blogs You're a Star Wars fan, therefore you have opinions. But how can you let the entire Star Wars community know what you're thinking? Start a blog! Hyperspace member blogs can be read by anyone, and will be continually spotlighting best-of-the-best and random content as well, getting your words in front of millions.

Are you part of a fan group? You can apply for a collaborative group blog that can become the home page for your force, garrison, club, society, tribe, clan or squadron. As part of, new members will have new ways to find you.

Look for Hyperspace blogs to debut in May, just in time for your Revenge of the Sith rants and raves.

Galactic Gallery The sketches, paintings and sculptures from the minds of the Star Wars concept artists are so magical on their own, they have spawned museum tours. Hyperspace will take its readers through a new virtual gallery through all six Star Wars films, including rare finds from the Lucasfilm archives.

Star Wars Insider Archives Hyperspace members already have access to the full online archive of Bantha Tracks, the original Star Wars Fan Club newsletter. Due to popular demand, the online restoration will continue starting with 1987's first issue of the Lucasfilm Fan Club Magazine (renamed Star Wars Insider with issue #23).

Hyperspace Webcam Episode III production is over, but the famous webcam refuses to go into retirement. Look for it to make planned special appearances at the greatest events (like the Episode III MTV TRL Party at Skywalker Ranch, and Comic-Con 2005) and the most secret locations (like the Lucasfilm Archives).

... and much more George Lucas hinted at some of his plans for two Star Wars television series last week at Celebration III. As production moves forward, Hyperspace is once again planning to bring its members the best access as the saga breaks new ground.

Stay tuned for news about more exciting additions, including exclusive video, exclusive images, trivia contests, leader boards, video game cheat codes, original fiction, contests, expanded benefits and more.

Of course, your favorites will still be here: first-look video, webstrips, celebrity chats, rare fiction, Kessel Mines articles, rare classic trilogy images, exclusive forums features, Star Wars email address, "Delta Source" newsletter, and 24-hour access to the full Episode III content archive.

A Hero Falls

STARWARS.COM has recently released a new music video on their site which, in my opinion, is the very best Epsidoe III trailer yet to be released! It showcases the decent of Anakin Skywalker with this some truly fascinating scenes from the new movie, and a few key scenes from Episodes I and II near the end. Hardly a true music-video in the sense of the term, a very teasing and well orchestrated trailer for the upcomming end of the saga, none-the-less.

The Dark Side is upon us...

Tuesday May 03, 2005 Launches

Hasbro announced last week at Celebration III that they would be opening a website devoted to their products. Well, today has officially opened its virtual doors for business. Having a hard time finding those certain Star Wars figures? Then this is a good place to look. They are a little pricy though. Happy hunting!

Yoda Diet Pepsi Commercial

The Official Star Wars Site has posted a pretty funny Diet Pepsi commercial that features Yoda. Somewhere in the Jedi Code, there must be something written about letting a Jedi Master get a Diet Pepsi. This is not a Hyperspace item, so click here to watch the ad and enjoy!
