Optional (Paid subscription required for Hyperspace section)
StarWars.com is the official Star Wars website. Run by Lucas Online, the online entertainment arm of Lucasfilm Ltd., the website was founded in November 1996. The site has evolved throughout its thirteen year history, with frequent redesigns that are often motivated by the current Star Wars film or television show in production. Its latest incarnation began in 2007.
The website is subdivided into a number of specific sections, including areas dedicated to each canon film, the Expanded Universe, and a special section known as Hyperspace which is accessible only to paid members. One popular segment of the website is the Databank.
Within the canon Star Wars universe, "www.starwars.com" was the HoloNet address of an extensive list of historical resources. This homage to the official website was included in The New Essential Chronology.
