Lucasfilm (parent of LucasArts) registers Ewok Village domain for unknown project

Ewok Village

It’s not everyday that Lucasfilm registers a new domain name.

The last time the company picked up anything of note was back in early May when the company registered eight domains related to Star Wars: 1313, which turned out to be a video game that is creating quite a buzz.  So, it may be worth paying attention to a domain name the company registered on August 20, 2012, through the brand protection agency Corporation Service Company –

Ewok Village is the home of the furry Ewoks on the forest moon Endor.

While the domain may be nothing more than the company protecting its intellectual property or unannounced plans for a new action playset for the 2012 holiday season, it’s possible LucasArts could have an Ewok Village video game in the works.

For now, it’s all just speculation.

If you’re wondering why Lucasfilm didn’t register (no hyphen), that’s because the name was first registered back in 2005 by someone else.  Today, it’s a puppies website that has a picture of Ewoks on the homepage.

At the time of this story being published, the domain name does not resolve to a web page.

Lucasfilm Entertainment files “Star Wars 1313” video game trademark [UPDATED]

Star Wars 1313

UPDATE 1 May 31, 2012: Lucasarts has unveiled the Star Wars 1313 website (screenshot above). now re-directs visitors to  The official Facebook page can be found on While there is nothing more than an image on the home page, more will be revealed at E3.  But according to a video interview, the game is about bounty hunters as I first speculated when I reported about the domain name registrations and trademark filing.


ORIGINAL STORY: Lucasfilm Entertainment Company Ltd. has filed a trademark application (Serial Number: 85613835) with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for “Star Wars 1313”.

The filing covers a variety of goods and services including interactive entertainment software, books, toy action figures, online social networking services, and interactive video games.

After I spotted over a dozen registrations earlier this week for Star Wars 1313 domains like, I had speculated the project could be related to a potential Boba Fett movie.  It wasn’t a strong argument and was based on the fact that CT-1313 was once an alias used by Boba Fett and last summer director Joe Johnston said he was trying to get George Lucas to make a movie featuring the bounty hunter.

While “Star Wars 1313” now looks less likely related to a new film, apart from the trademark application filed on May 1, 2012, not much else is known including which platforms the game will be available on.

Star Wars: Identities

This week, Lucasfilm registered a handful of domain names hinting at something new on the way for the Star Wars franchise called ‘Star Wars: Identities’.

Three domain names were registered on November 7th through Corporation Service Company, a brand protection service:, (typo) and

No information has been released on ‘Star Wars: Identities’ by Lucasfilm as of yet.

Though it’s a stretch to speculate that ‘Star Wars: Identities’ could be a new film in a sequel trilogy, George Lucas has long denied plans of making Episodes VII, VIII and IX.

Could ‘Star Wars: Identities’ be slated for an animated series, DVD, or video game?

‘Star Wars: Identities’ sounds interesting, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see for Lucasfilm to comment.
