With the Star Wars film franchise in the planning stages of expanding beyond our wildest imaginations, it’s only proper that its online presence would continue to expand as well. It started earlier this month with a new Instagram account that debuted with Darth Vader’s selfie, and it continued today with the launch of the official Star Wars Tumblr account. Somewhere, a very lonely Star Wars fan is waiting for his Jedi connection on Linked In.
But just like that selfie from the Dark Side, the first Star Wars Tumblr post had to be perfect, and it’s safe to say that they absolutely nailed it, for lack of a better Internet phrase.
“Artoo is pleased to announce the launch of our official Tumblr! We promise there won’t be any cat videos… except maybe a nexu or two.”
It’s only a matter of time before we see this image again, except with another website’s watermark slapped over it and 450,000 new notes on it. Tumblr is definitely the Emperor’s preferred social media site.
