Google Chrome Plugin Blocks All ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Spoilers | Film News



Remember those early, heady days when you had to scour the internet for the smallest hint or rumour about J. J. Abrams upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens? The notoriously tight-lipped director managed to keep the project under wraps for a long time; and however frustrating it was as a fan, my excitement and enthusiasm for the project quietly began to simmer. After the release of the first trailer, however, Disney seemed to drastically alter their policy on secrecy.


Now, I can’t check my feedsites or even read a Metro on the train without constant fear that some article blasting spoilers into my eyeballs. In short, fans must now walk a thin line, managing their curiosity against the abundance of information made readily available by the media. Alex Jumašev and Max Al Farakh of the tech company Jitbit have been dealing with this very issue.


They have developed and released a Google Chrome plugin that will block all spoilers from you computer (though spiteful friends could still email you – be vigilant!). Instead of displaying the websites content, the app shows a rendition of the iconic Star Wars rolling credits, warning the user of potential threats to their Force Awakens viewing experience.


I for one will be installing the plugin; I know everything I want to know about the film before I enter the cinema, and if anyone even mentions where Luke Skywalker has been this whole time I cannot be held responsible for my actions. The Star Wars Spoiler Blocker is available from the app store. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released in the UK on December 17.
