Launched on 31st October 2017, has swiftly positioned itself as the go-to website for daily news. Pulling together a team of experienced Star Wars reporters from around the world, Fantha Tracks aim to bring the latest breaking news, collecting news, interviews, reviews, podcasts and fan interactions from across the planet each and every day.

Fantha Tracks have cultivated a reputation as a trusted news site with outlets such as The New York Journal, WIRED, the BBC and The Guardian sharing their news. Hear about Gary Fisher in The Last Jedi? That was Fantha Tracks. Or the news of the Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone shooting schedule? The production title of Episode IX being Black Diamond, or that changing to Trixie? Fantha again. Or perhaps the great news of Billy Dee Williams return as Lando Calrissian in Episode IX? All broken by Fantha Tracks, and there’s more to come.

The podcast network Fantha Tracks Radio kicked off with two shows – Making Tracks, which focuses on convention news and interviews and Australian based show The Fantha From Down Under  – that was just the beginning. Further shows focus on music, fandom, fangirls and collecting.

YouTube channel Fantha Tracks TV brings news and reviews every week. More than 100 videos were posted in the channel’s first six months, and the channel posts a minimum of two videos per week – with events coverage, reviews and commentary. Fantha Trackers are spread across the planet, from Australia to Sweden, Brazil to Holland, the UK to the USA – everything is covered.

Fantha Tracks has dozens of contributors, with decades of combined Star Wars reporting experience and thousands of pages posted to a variety of sites.

Fantha Trackers have covered numerous events across the planet including Star Wars Celebrations going back to Celebration 3 in 2005, multiple New York Comic Cons, Star Wars Fan Day in Texas, San Diego Comic Con, MegaCon in Florida, New York Toy Fair and more, our reporting team has been present at many of the major Star Wars events this and the last century.
