Disney Abandons Star Wars 1313 Trademark

star wars 1313

Bad news for Star Wars 1313.  The much anticipated Star Wars game is more dead today than ever as news reaches us that Disney have chosen not to renew the trademark for the game.  Escapist writes:

Disney has chosen not to renew the Star Wars 1313 trademark. All hope is lost.
Even after Disney laid off the entire staff at LucasArts, many gamers thought that Star Wars 1313 would survive the transition. After all, the game was supposedly deep into development, and completing an unfinished title is typically more cost effective than starting over. However, when Electronic Arts took over the Star Wars franchise, the chances of Star Wars 1313 being resurrected practically disintegrated. And just before Christmas, Disney failed to renew the title's trademark, which officially asphyxiates any remaining hope.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office currently classifies Star Wars 1313 as "Abandoned because no Statement of Use or Extension Request timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued."
Personally I'm holding out hope.  Normally when a game is abandoned that showed any form of promise or an engine that could be used in another way always ends up surfacing in another form.  I wouldn't be surprised if we see Star Wars 1313 under a different name in the future.

I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history. UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise.
