About Us

OuterRimNews.com was founded in June of 2015 by Austin Gordy, Butler Raines, and Ashley Wilbanks. The site started out mainly as a Facebook page where we gathered Star Wars news for readers, but quickly turned into something larger.  Soon after getting to 1,000 Facebook page likes in less than a week, we opened up our own site for readers to come to.

Not long after the creation of the site, came the Outer Rim News Podcast hosted by Austin and Ashley.

The goal of Outer Rim News is to provide our readers with the most up-to-date Star Wars news around, so that when the news breaks, you can read about it here, and be in the know.

Some people like Star Wars and some people really like Star Wars. There are occasions though when the Galaxy Far, Far Away consumes your very existence, and this is very much me. I have loved Star Wars for over 20 years, it was and always will be my biggest passion.

First seeing the original star wars film on dvd when he was only a few years old, his interest in the films all about a galaxy far, far away was rekindled with Disney’s acquisition of the franchise. Since then he's rewatched all of the films and alongside his anticipation for the next new installment in the saga, he has also developed a newfound hatred for Jar Jar Binks.
