1313 trademark dropped by Disney


Andy
  • In case you were still clinging to the tattered remains of your hopes for Star Wars 1313, once one of LucasArts' most anticipated games, allow me to dash those hopes.

According to the US Patent and Trademark Office website, the trademark for Star Wars 1313 has now lapsed after Disney failed to renew the mark. Allowing trademarks to expire is highly uncharacteristic of the Disney empire, and thus we can only assume the worst.

Even after Disney took control of LucasArts and laid waste to the staff roster we held on to hope that development would be resumed once restructuring was complete. And when Electronic Arts was granted the licence to develop games for the franchise, did we falter? No! Well, some of us sure did, but there was still a glimmer of hope that all the effort that had already gone in to 1313 would not be left to rot.

Now it seems the final nail has been driven into 1313's coffin.

RIP Star Wars 1313; gone but not forgotten.

    • Disney reveals Star Wars Land concept art

      Disney has revealed concept art for the upcoming Star Wars Land theme park to views of Disneyland's diamond celebration television special, The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60.
      A Star Wars theme park has been rumored ever since Disney picked up the franchise from George Lucas, and was finally confirmed by chairman Bob Iger during Disney's D23 Expo in August 2015.
      The show featured some artwork we already saw from D23, but also revealed new information about the 14 acre park which will feature a Millennium Falcon ride and an interactive experience of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Other areas shown in the previews include a restaurant, cantina, and a walkthrough street bazaar.
      The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 is available to watch on ABC’s official site.
    • Disney confirms Star Wars theme park attractions

      Disney have officially confirmed that plans are under way to create Star Wars themed lands at their theme parks.
      CEO Bob Iger has finally put an end to months of rumor and speculation regarding Disney's plans for Star Wars theme parks by announcing that both Hollywood Studios in Orlando, and Disneyland in Anaheim will be host to fully themed Star Wars lands.
      The announcement was made at Disney's D23 Expo and details ambitious plans for the two new areas, which would each be over 14-acres in size. Iger explained that they aim to push the boundaries of what is possible and that these new parks will take that aim to a new level, giving fans a whole galaxy to explore.
      There will be two signature attractions, including a Millennium Falcon flight simulator and an epic adventure that promises to put guests in the midst of a climactic battle.
      While fans wait for Star Wars land to become a reality, Disney will continue to update it's attractions, with a The Force Awakens update coming to the Star Tours ride later this year, and a new attraction called the Launch Bay which will allow fans to see Star Wars props and costumes and artwork.
      Also, next year will see the first 'Season of the Force' at the Orlando and Anaheim parks with exclusive events, with Space Mountain becoming Hyperspace Mountain with Star Wars music, visual effects, and more.
      It has yet to be announced whether these additions will also be replicated at Disney's international locations.

      One of the most eagerly awaited Star Wars video games in years, the long awaited reboot of the Star Wars Battlefront franchise has now launched the closed alpha sign-up process. The alpha is only for PC users, and does require an Origin account to join.
