    Can we expect starwars.com and its encyclopedia to include Rebels, the ST, and spin-offs?

    Who cares, Wookiepedia is the real deal.

    Wookipedia is THE source for Star Wars info, and puts the official site to shame. So much, that they eventually conceded a good while ago and gutted a grand majority of the Databank. Now there's just a few blurbs for a couple of entries, along with a "More On Wookipedia" type link.

    Who cares, writers rely on it for a lot background info.

    I just didn't want this thread to be ignored on the basis of Wookieepedia comparisons.

    I think it will definitely feature Rebels and the new films. But it doesn't really matter to me as long as there's Wookieepedia.

    I care about starwars.com, whether or not wookieepedia exists. Starwars.com is fun-to-read and isn't weighed down by the EU.

    Starwars.com's encyclopedia does an admirable job of being complete, concise, and interconnected for "the restuvus", or rather, "the restuv 'em". Wookieepedia is great but like darklordoftech said, it is bogged down by EU which is most definitely not everybody's cup of tea, and much of which has been all but relegated to a sort of 'alternate universe' status.

    There's little reason to assume SW.com will not include new information in its encyclopedia. In fact, we may see new character bios on the site well before the movie comes out. Going back to '77, there have been star wars fans who were fans before they even saw the movie thanks to pre-promotional campaigns. The website will be the perfect place to have such a campaign this time around.

    (edit time ran out)
    What if Disney decides that GL isn't involved enough in the ST for it to be included in the starwars.com encyclopedia?

    The encyclopedia on SW.com is not dependable on Lucas involvement.

    No way, Star Wars is already distancing itself from Rebels and the ST.

    Yeah the EU used to be a part of it, but not anymore. However darklordoftech Disney owns Lucasfilm it doesn't run Lucasfilm.
    Lucasfilm is going to keep doing things their way. Rebels and the new movies are going to be a part of the data just as the current saga including the Clone Wars is.
