Disney Registers Star Wars Master the Force Domain Name

In the past 24 hours, Disney Enterprises, Inc. registered a few new domain names. I normally monitor the domain names that are registered by major companies on a regular basis. Disney doesn’t register a whole lot of domain names. But, they currently own 15,000 domain names total. In the past 24 hours, though, they registered three new domain names:

farklenation.com
farklenation.net
starwarsmastertheforce.com

What is interesting to me, though, is this new domain name that they registered: StarWarsMasterTheForce.com, which, spelled out, is “Star Wars Master The Force”.

I checked the domain name, and it currently is set up with a 301 Permanent Redirect to DisneyInternational.com:

So, if you are a Star Wars fan, what do you think they are going to do with this domain name? As for those other domain names, FarkleNation.com and FarkleNation.net, I have no clue. What do you think?
