Disney Registers ‘Attack Squadron’ Domains
Good afternoon Battlefrontians. While waiting for some new Battlefront news to surface, I thought I would do a post on these new domains that Disney has been acquiring over the last week or so. There has been a lot of speculation going around on what this “Attack Squadron” could be. Some are assuming it is a new secret game that Disney is preparing for, perhaps a new “Rogue Squadron”? Others have speculated that this could be the name of a new Star Wars movie or TV show.
Fusible.com has reported the following list of domains that have been snatched up by Disney and registered under LucasFilm through the brand protection agency Corporation Service Company (CSC).
attacksquadron.org (WHOIS) attacksquadron.us (WHOIS) attacksquadrons.org (WHOIS) attacksquadrons.net (WHOIS) attacksquadrons.us (WHOIS) attacksquads.org (WHOIS) attacksquads.net (WHOIS) attacksquads.us (WHOIS) starwarsattacksquadrons.org (WHOIS) starwarsattacksquadrons.net (WHOIS) starwarsattacksquadrons.us (WHOIS) starwarssquad.org (WHOIS) starwarssquad.net (WHOIS) starwarssquad.us (WHOIS) starwarssquadrons.org (WHOIS) starwarssquadrons.net (WHOIS) starwarssquadrons.us (WHOIS) starwarssquads.org (WHOIS) starwarssquads.us (WHOIS) swattacksquadron.org (WHOIS) swattacksquadron.us (WHOIS) swattacksquadrons.org (WHOIS) swattacksquadrons.net (WHOIS) swattacksquadrons.us (WHOIS)
The above list is not an exhaustive list. The same names also appear to have been registered in the .biz and .co.uk extensions.
The names were all registered on July 26, 2013, but none resolve to a web page at the time of this story. In the past 24 hours, they were moved over from CSC’s domain servers to Disney’s.
Either way, Star Wars: Attack Squadron has a nice ring to it and I look forward to what Disney has in store for us.
