Lucasfilm has relaunched StarWars.com. In addition to the new look, the redesign brings the site into the Disney fold by integrating the Disney ID that visitors also may use at Disney.com and ESPN.com.
It is interesting to note that Marvel has yet to adopt the Disney user ID system.
Here is the email StarWars.com sent to registered users.
Dear Star Wars fan,
As we begin a journey into an exciting new era of Star Wars, it’s time for a fully armed and operational online Star Wars experience. So we’re thrilled to let you know that Lucasfilm is launching an all-new StarWars.com — with movie, TV, and video game news, innovative features, and more in-depth original content than ever before.
And as a loyal StarWars.com visitor and Star Wars fan, we want you to be a part of it. Here’s how.
Introducing the Disney ID. You can register now for a Disney ID at StarWars.com, giving you exclusive access to upcoming special features, Force-filled digital experiences, and lots more. It will be your first step into a larger world of Star Wars. Disney sites, games, and interactive experiences will also be accessible.
As we transition to Disney ID, your existing StarWars.com account will be deleted. But don’t worry — your new Disney ID is more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
We look forward to seeing you at the new StarWars.com. Thank you.
