this is a place to share links to general interest Star Wars websites that you have gotten sucked in by and fell down the proverbial rabbit hole for hours …here are a few of my faves …https://www.starwarsarchives.com/ the pdf’s of old magazines like Cinefantastiqe , Starlog and others are a wealth of information on the making of the OT …https://starwarsaficionado.blogspot.com/…a treasure trove of behind the scenes pics from throughout the saga…http://www.thestarwarstrilogy.com/…reminds me of the physical Star Wars scrapbooks I made as a kid . would love to see more resources like this .

Nice idea for a thread, maybe clean up the OP a little (rather than looking like a brain to text dump) so you’ve got an official list you can add to as other people offer up more links 😃

I’d probably put Ady’s Star Wars Revisited page into the same category as The Star Wars Trilogy page. Though obviously not quite so big, you can still get lost there for a good few hours reading up on each revisited project and update posts on their progress:

Sweet idea for a thread, mate 😃

I love the vibe and look of that stylish Star Wars Archives site you linked to.

Darth Neo has done an awesome job on it, from 2007 to present - The Star Wars Archives, a different kind of preservation

 
 

Some sites that older members on here know and remember well - though may not have visited in a while…

 
SaveStarWars.com - zombie84’s site; comprehensive research into the history of Star Wars - also highlighting much of the revisionism / contradictions from George…

Secret History Of Star Wars - another zombie84 website, as above this time re zombie84’s book; website is re-hosted by none

Star Wars Special Edition Visual Comparisons - doubleofive’s quality and intriguing resource blog

Star Wars Holiday Special website - for me, the definitive SWHS site; run by SKot

HelloGreedo’s ‘Star Wars Profiles’ video series of actors and people BTS of the Original Trilogy (and beyond…)

Jambe Davdar’s Filmumentaries Site - superb video projects, documentaries and interviews etc

The People Vs George Lucas - website for the 2010 documentary

Star Wars At The Movies - a beautiful looking resource for the OT films (with articles, blog and podcasts)

Milners Blog - Star Wars - quality SW news and decent quality images (all without clickbait and sensationalism)

Kitbashed - The Origins of Star Wars - absorbing and insightful e-book/blog on Star Wars origins (run by Heilemann)

and here is another great site that has been around for many many years and has a lot of info and pics of OT cut scenes , His site has changed a bit over time , but he was one of the first on the web to offer a repository of cut scenes pics and info long before they were available on blu ray …http://starwarz.com/tbone/

Also one of the few fans to ever anger the flanneled one, (over reporting on a certain Episode III cameo) and get banned from the ranch so to speak.

T’Bonz…

A quality reminder for his top site - cheers, Screams 😃

 


 

Not sure if Screams wanted to include twitter pages (as they’re not really websites) - yet thought these may be of some interest - especially from an OT point of view…

Star Wars 1977-1983 - some great pics and info

Star Wars 1977-1996 - some great pics and info, from a more civilised time…

Classic Star Wars - as above, with an emphasis on the toys / merch at the time

Star Wars Underworld - decent enough news and info site for all things Star Wars

OriginalTrilogy.com - seems familiar somehow… 😉

‘From the Desk of Charles Lippincott’:-

http://therealcharleslippincott.blogspot.com
 

http://therealcharleslippincott.blogspot.com/search/label/Ad Concepts - some intriguing posters for promoting Star Wars that were deemed to be ‘failed ad concepts’…

With a lot more Star Wars content too - http://therealcharleslippincott.blogspot.com/search/label/STAR WARS 😃

(as well as other projects he has worked)

Great find, Jason. I already blew an hour or so perusing that site. 😃

Nice one 😃
 

This may be of interest for fans of some of the old school vinyl and cassette music releases:-

The Music Of Star Wars’ website - www.restrainingbolt.com/sw/starwarsmusic.html

www.restrainingbolt.com/sw/misc/sw_music.php?format=cassettes (also albums, 45’s, 8-tracks, misc, and advert sections)
 

I haven’t had a chance to go through the rest of the Restraining Bolt website yet - though seems there may be some intriguing stuff on there, especially in the Music, Collection, Prop tutorials and Photo Gallery sections…
