Lucasfilm Registers 'Star Wars Resistance' For Trademark

resistance lucasfilm

Lucasfilm have filed four separate registrations for 'Star Wars Resistance' leading many fans to speculate what this will lead to.  The filings were uncovered by the good folks over at YakFace.Com and the person who found it (Jayson) also mentioned what the four separate registrations cover.  They are:

87801117 – Toys, games and playthings; gymnastic and sporting articles (except clothing); hand-held units for playing electronic games for use with or without an external display screen or monitor; skins for covering and protecting apparatus; paper party favors; paper party hats; Christmas stockings; Christmas tree ornaments and decorations; snow globes

87801037– Clothing, footwear and headwear

87800997 – Paper and paper articles; cardboard and cardboard articles; printed matter; publications; books; photographs; portraits; paintings; photo-engravings; stationery; office and school supplies; school supply kits; temporary tattoo transfers; foam stamps; party bags; plastic sandwich bags; shopping bags

87800987 – Apparatus for recording, transmission, processing, and reproduction of sound, images, or data; digital media; audio books; audio and visual recordings; video game software; computer programs and software; downloadable electronic publications; downloadable game software; downloadable mobile applications; consumer electronics and accessories therefor; eyeglasses and sunglasses and accessories therefor; binoculars; decorative magnets; graduated rulers; microphones; helmets; flotation vests; protective face masks not for medical purposes; snorkels; swimming goggles; swim masks

So as you can see Lucasfilm are covering their bases here and apparently this is standard practise.  However, some fans are speculating that Resistance is the next TV show to take over the reigns after Star Wars Rebels finishes.  Unfortunately Rebels will show its last episode on March 5th with season four episodes “A Fool’s Hope,” “Family Reunion and Farewell.” 

I'm still hoping for an open world Star Wars game in the same style as Mass Effect.  They could call it The Knights of the Old...Star Wars Resistance or something.  What we don't need, however is another cheap mobile app store game (Or an E.A. $60 game) centred around micro-transactions.
