Rebel Alliance wins: New ‘Star Wars’ site invites mashups

The official “Star Wars” website is relaunching to mark the series’ 30th anniversary (damn, I’m old) and with the relaunch comes something of a warming in George Lucas’s attitude toward online use of his stuff. The notoriously protective, some might say imperial approach Lucas has taken toward people who use his clips will thaw a bit, as the new site invites video mashups that use scenes from the “Star Wars” films. Lucas will have official screeners watch each clip (good luck with that) before they post, to make sure there is no pornography. We’re cool with that, so long as they allow the Princess Leia golden bikini scenes. Plus, any occasion I get to mention the Vader Sessions is worth blogging. Best. Star Wars mashup. Ever.
