Star Wars fans can connect with the Force in ways they've only imagined beginning Friday, May 25, when StarWars.com launches a completely redesigned website that enables fans (and detractors) to "mash-up" their homemade videos with hundreds of scenes from the Star Wars movies; watch hundreds of fan- (and detractor-) made Star Wars videos; and interact with Star Wars enthusiasts (and detractors) from around the world like never before.

The new site's interactive home-page design allows users to navigate to multiple Star Wars worlds and sports a new video focus, and "Web 2.0" features -- including a unique online multi-media mixing platform from Eyespot -- the new StarWars.com will unveil its redesigned website on May 25 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars Saga.

Among the most compelling features of the newly redesigned StarWars.com is the incorporation of an online video-editing tool provided by Eyespot. It allows users to add their own video shots to more than 250 scenes and music taken from all six Star Wars films and create their own Star Wars movies to share with others.

StarWars.com is also unveiling a new collection of hundreds of videos -- many never before seen on the Internet -- that will let fans enjoy some of the best user-generated Star Wars videos from across the web, including such cult favorites as "Chad Vader," and five years worth of Star Wars Fan Movie Festival shorts, co-presented by AtomFilms.com. StarWars.com will also showcase extensive mini-documentaries that explore the making of the Star Wars Saga.

StarWars.com is the Internet's only official 365-day-a-year entertainment destination for Star Wars fans and is produced by Lucas Online, a division of Lucasfilm Ltd., as a digital destination for entertainment, education, reference and e-commerce for Lucasfilm's intellectual properties and businesses.
