Lucasfilm and Disney have been recently locking down a number of quite mysterious domain names according to an article on Blastr
, resulting in fans scratching their head at what this could all mean.
Last week the two companies registered a handful of interesting domains, all based on a variation of the phrases "Star Wars Attack Squadrons", "Star Wars Attack Squads" and "Star Wars Squads". It is unclear whether this could have any indication of a new film, or if it could be a hint towards a new game title after the recent Electronic Arts acquisition for Star Wars game production.
It's worth noting that the last time we saw a mysterious slew of domain-name purchases from Lucasfilm, it turned out to be a videogame project, and that's definitely a possibility now with Electronic Arts taking over new Star Wars game production. But it's not the only possibility. There's always the chance that we'll see yet another TV show in the works soon, and of course Disney Parks has its own plans for new Star Wars attractions (can you imagine a Disney attraction where you get to fly a simulated X-wing?), so there are more than a few quite plausible places where "Attack Squadrons" could go.
It is worth noting though that none of these domains are currently active, though if a company is registering domains this frantically hopefully it means we'll hear about it sooner rather than later.
