This page wants to
give you some information about our 'Rebel Friends' page.
Here's what Scott Chitwood wrote
when we first launched Rebel Friends: "For a long time TheForce.Net
has wanted to do a Star Wars web site geared towards younger Star
Wars fans. After all, most of us on the team became fans when we were
under 10 years old. Now, all of us have young friends, nieces and
nephews, or brothers and sisters we'd like to share Star Wars with,
but this site is a little over their head or boring. :) So we've created
a kid friendly site with features and cool stuff geared toward our
younger friends and fanatics. We've gone ahead and opened it, but
more features will be added soon. So drag the munchkins to the computer
screen and get ready to let them explore this new corner of the Star
Wars Universe! "
But first of all, we want to ask you
your comments and suggestions. What would you like us to do on this
page? If your kids have visited 'Rebel Friends', what did they like?
Was there anything that was too difficult, or too childish perhaps?
What would they like to see? We'd appreciate your feed-back enormously.
And if you'd like to contribute to this page yourself, just write
us a note! You can send us your reactions by clicking the e-mail
button on the main page, or by clicking here: firstname.lastname@example.org
At present, we try to target
boys and girls between 4 and 12 years old.
- What's our target
The most important thing for
us is to share our own enthusiasm for George Lucas' Star Wars Universe
with a new generation of kids. We'd like them to enjoy Star Wars just
as much as we did when we had their age (and we still enjoy it!).
But our goal is not only to entertain your kids. We also want to stimulate
them to get creative: to paint, write, color and construct. Star Wars
itself began as the creative idea of one single person, and over the
years more and more people were inspired to join that creative effort.
We hope that this little website can help stimulate the creative development
of your child a little bit. After all, there might be a new George
Lucas in everyone of them :o)
- Why did we create
We try to keep navigation as
simple as possible so that kids can discover a lot of things on their
own. However, some things (like sending us an e-mail, scanning a picture
they made or printing out a picture to color) might be too difficult
for them, and may require some help. We hope that you will stimulate
your children to write us, and to send us their drawings, stories
and photos. In that way, children will be able to see what other children
created, and that can give them new ideas and inspiration!
- How to
visit this website?
Most of the artwork is made
by former team member Amy Pronovost, who now contributes to the official
Star Wars Kids magazine. Most of the interactive adventures (The Wampa
Cave, Jar Jar's Hunt for the stolen Bunny Bunny Eggs, the Creepy Cantina,
the Santa Menace and the Jedi Council Test) are created by Roderick
Vonhögen, who also programs and maintains the rest of the site.
