Jedi News…. Notice Something Different?



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: THURSDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER, 5.01PM: The UK based Star Wars fan site Jedi News announce the launch of a newly designed website in advance of the December 16th release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.


Launched on 4th May 2007 Jedi News quickly developed to become the UK’s number one destination for fans seeking the latest Star Wars news. In 2010, Jedi News merged with fellow UK site Lightsabre, which launched 28th June 1999. Now the original content of both sites dating as far back as 1982 is available in one place for the first time.


With a strong focus on posting factual news first and strengthening bonds and interactions with fandom, the site enjoys an international following that continues to grow.


As announced on the 50th episode of RADIO 1138, heard exclusively on the Jedi News Network, the new site will continue to bring the widest coverage from the Star Wars galaxy.  #TeamJediNews are working hard to continue raising the bar and making Jedi News the number one fan-led hub for all things Star Wars.


There are still a few minor tweaks to be made. Internal links and some of the images are still settling down but we should have the site at full thrusters very shortly. Thanks to everyone who has commented on the change, it’s greatly appreciated. And stay tuned. As a wise old resident of Serenno once said, this is just the beginning.
