    Six years ago, Disney purchased Lucasfilm from Star Wars' creator George Lucas, and Star Wars News Net has been there every step of the way to bring you a constant flow of Star Wars news, reviews, and more. Today is a very special day for us, as we celebrate our sixth birthday as a website! Star Wars News Net was created by our founder Val Trichkov (Viral Hide), and in the early days we went by a different name (special shout out to those of you who are still around from the StarWars7News days!), but since day one, it has been our highest priority to make our online community a place where Star Wars fans from all walks of life can unite together in their love for the franchise.





    The site has grown tremendously in the past few years alongside the ever-expanding saga that we love. In 2014, we began our forum, 'The Cantina', which has been a huge success in establishing the type of community that we ourselves want to be a part of. Our staff has also multiplied exponentially along the way, and we even have a whole new group of writers to staff our recently established sister site, Movie News Net, which is wonderfully maintained by longtime SWNN staff member Grant Davis.

    We're also very proud of our podcast, 'The Resistance Broadcast', an effort that has blossomed into one of the most entertaining Star Wars shows on the web (if we do say so ourselves). John Hoey, James Baney, and Lacey Gilleran bring you all the news from the website through each weekly transmission as well as their own opinions and thought-provoking discussions. If you haven't checked it out yet, we encourage you to give it a listen or watch on our YouTube channel.



    When all is said and done though, we would be nothing without you, our readers, and to you we say a big 'THANK YOU'! So join us in celebrating our birthday today by heading to the comment section below. We want to hear from you! What do you love about the site? What would you like to see more of? What do you not like so much about it? Just tell us in the comments along with how long you've been a reader of Star Wars News Net, and you will be entered for a chance to win in our poster giveaway.



    We are giving away these three limited edition posters that are no longer available for purchase. Special thanks to our friends at Bottleneck Gallery for supplying them.

    I would love to see more explorations of previous canon materials. I love all the updates about upcoming projects. I don't read comic books anymore so I also love seeing what is in production on that front. I have been coming to this site since the very beginning and checked StarWars7News almost daily for casting rumors and storyline speculation. Keep up the good work!

    Congratulations and good work, I started reading starwars7news shortly after I heard that there will be a new trilogy, after an extensive search for a reliable source for news.

    I'm impressed at how SWNN allows differing opinions on some "controversial" topics but mostly manages to keep it civil. Many Star Wars forums are either overmoderated or undermoderated, but this is the best balance I have seen.

    This was not worded clearly. I thought posting on this thread was the way to enter. :(
