Disney abandons Star Wars 1313 trademark

It's been no secret that Star Wars 1313 has been frozen in carbonite since Disney acquired LucasArts. But Disney may have finally Force choked away any spark of hope that this game would ever see the light of day, as they allowed the Star Wars 1313 trademark to formally lapse.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (via The Escapist) states that the trademark had been abandoned since December 23, citing that it was "abandoned because no Statement of Use or Extension Request timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued." As in similar cases, however, Disney can revive the trademark anytime they wish.

Though the Boba Fett-led vehicle may never take flight, fans can at least take heart knowing that the motion-capture tech will live on in future Lucasfilm productions.
