“Star Wars” Day was last week. (“May the fourth be with you” and all that). But diehard fans of the films are obviously ready to celebrate it at anytime and anywhere. So there was a jolt of excitement when word came out that the owner of the franchise, LucasFilm, had filed for a new trademark, “Star Wars 1313,” according to NeoSeeker.com.
The filing suggests that LucasFilm will be using the new trademark for a new Star Wars game, though others had originally thought it might be a television show.
The trademark would be used for “interactive entertainment software and accompanying instruction manuals sold as a unit, namely, computer game software and manuals sold as a unit, video game software and manuals sold as a unit; video game software, computer game software, and pre-recorded compact discs and DVDs featuring games, films, animation, music, computer game software, and video game software; downloadable video game software and downloadable computer game software; computer game software for use on mobile and cellular phones.”
As NeoSeeker points out, the filing also matches the one made back in 2006 for game series The Force Unleashed. The filing also includes a list of different domain names from a variety of countries that would be used in conjunction with the new product.
It isn’t clear what the 1313 actually means, though NeoSeeker does note that the number worked as bounty hunter “Boba Fett’s alias while masquerading as a soldier from the Clone Wars.”
Fans will surely figure out the mystery soon enough.
