fans.starwars.com to shut down Dec. 20th
by Doc on Nov.29, 2001, under General News
The official Star Wars site has announced that Lucas Online will cease hosting fans.starwars.com, which hosted tons of sanctioned fan websites, originally set up in March of 2000. I’m guessing it got too expensive for Lucas to foot the bill. Note that they are not killing the web sites themselves – as long as they continue to comply with the sanctioning agreement, they can host their site anywhere.
