On Wookieepedia, a spoiler is considered a spoiler up to and until one month after the official U.S. (or country of origin's) release date of the particular product. Therefore, any new information from said source must contain a spoiler tag until one month has passed since the product's release. Also, Quotes of the Day may not appear on the Main Page until at least one month after the United States release of the quote's source.

Available templates


To use, type {{Majorspoiler|name of source's article|formatted name of source}}.

This template should be used for major spoilers, those that consist of a major portion of the plot from the product in question.


To use, type {{Spoilerstart}}.

This template should be used for general spoilers—any spoiler whose source material does not have a more specific template. More precise guidelines will be determined in the future.


To use, type {{VIIspoiler}}.

This template should be used on articles for subjects original to Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens or a directly related product, such as its novelization. Articles about subjects not original to The Force Awakens but that contain The Force Awakens spoilers will continue to use {{Majorspoiler}}.
