The EUCantina.net is going with a new look.

In honor of the two biggest Star Wars events since 2005, we’ve decided to change the theme of our website to celebrate. From now until the release of The Force Unleashed, we will be blue.

Our “EU going Blue” summer centers around Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie and The Force Unleashed video game. Besides obvious site updates, a few special features are going to be added.

To start, the noticeable new color scheme has been created to go with our new banner (courtesy of Rebel Trading Post.com). We’ve also added two new countdowns next to our headline news slideshow.

The two new buttons on the top of the sidebar do link to our Forums and the Blogs for quicker access. Of course, the Blog button isn’t working yet, and that’s a site update that will be coming up soon, and will be a major event.

The Force Unleashed and Clone Wars image galleries have been made up to date, so be sure to check those out for all of the latest pictures. Those can be found on our Media Knowledge Center and The EU Unleashed pages. Don’t forget to keep checking on those two pages, as new content is constantly added. As of now, they include special podcasts, the image galleries, trailers and videos, and much more.

A new feature for the two upcoming Clone Wars video games can be found here. This will provide exclusive and in depth coverage of the new games, including videos and image galleries, soon to come.

Also, we have too big interviews coming up in September. We’ll chat with Karen Traviss, who is suspect to be working on the novel for the Clone Wars film. We are also working on getting an interview with Haden Blackman in the same month.

We hope that you enjoy all of the updates and work that have been put into the site.

I definately like the old look better and I think it flows better with the forums.

I wouldn't say that I absolutely love it but I definitely like it. I absolutely love the banner though. I love the way it mixes the two focuses of the new look. :D Props to whoever did it.

We may be changing the forums to a blue, but it's not in the plans as of right now. I happen to think it looks more professional this way and with the buttons and countdowns.

Oh, forgot to mention that I love the countdowns as well. :D Although they only make me realize how far away everything is... Sad

I like the color, I actually think it's better than the brown, but I do not like the new banner. Maybe the blue with the old banner.

Personally I like the blue, I think it could use more color though to help make it pop. Its a little too monochromatic.

But hey its just my opinion - the site is awesome!

Thanks for all the compliments Very Happy Austin and I (mostly Austin-- I just suggested colors and helped find stuff) worked hard on it. For those of you who don't like it that much, I know change it kinda hard-- I still am surprised when I come to EUC. It will be going back to brown/tan, but we changed the color for a reason Wink

I quite like it - it's a nice change. And the banner ROCKS. I do love the old colors, though.

I think the blue goes well with all the new Clone Wars stuff. All their sites our heavy on the blue and so is their media pictures. And I actually like change Very Happy

I gotta say, seeing as how blue is my favourite colour, I'm loving the new look! Very Happy
The new banner and countdown timers are cool too. I think changing the forums to a matching blue scheme would be brilliant, and I wish it wouldn't go back to brown. Great job guys.

The Force Unleashed and Clone Wars are out; why aren't we back to the classic theme? I miss it.
