Purchase by Disney October 2012

The news that Disney has purchased the Star Wars IP from Lucas has been rolling through fandom. I might try to write up something, unless someone more versed in SW history wants to give it a go. -Jaetion

I'd love it if you did, Jaetion! Folks can always add more it. --Mrs. Potato Head 14:55, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Break out subpages?

A lot of awesome info here! The page seems to be getting really long, though. Any sections anyone would recommend breaking out to make this more of an overview with links to more detailed information? -the old briar pipe (talk) 06:04, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

I totally agree! I added the trilogy headings to the infobox but that's not nearly enough --msilverstar (talk) 23:16, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
I hesitate to suggest this, lest I be pilloried, but the first half+ of the page (the longest bit) is explicitly the Original Trilogy fandom, while almost none of the page is devoted specifically to the two other trilogies. All of the material from sections 1-10 could be placed on a page that overviews the fandom for the Original Trilogy, and the top section of this page could be made to more broadly discuss the multiple layers/time periods of the fandom. "Impact of the Star Wars Prequel Movies" could also be moved to the Prequel overview page, which I'm fairly certain exists. Thoughts? Outraged howling? *ducks* -the old briar pipe (talk) 02:07, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
No rails! I think that's a good idea. It shortens the page, makes navigation better, and doesn't privilege as much. --MPH (talk) 13:58, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
Yay, I dodged a rail! Do we have consensus among interested parties? And can we move #18 "sections to add" to the talk page here? That would drop us down to 9 relatively shorter sections + a slight expansion of the introduction, which I think the page could probably support without overwhelming visitors. However, I'm very open to other ideas for what to move and where to move it. -the old briar pipe (talk) 23:15, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
I think you should start, and we'll sort it out as we go along. --MPH (talk) 13:06, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
Please do go ahead, I was looking at this and just daunted by the sheer amount of STUFF. You are a superstar! --msilverstar (talk) 21:30, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Fan Vids

Shouldn't there be a section for vids other than songvids e.g. Troops? --Marcus Rowland (talk) 18:20, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
