The Best Disney / Star Wars Mash-Up Art
The geekosphere was rocked today with the announcement that Disney has purchased Lucasfilm, the home of ‘Star Wars,’ for $4 billion. If that wasn’t enough to inspire “Goofy shot first” jokes, Disney also announced plans to release a new ‘Star Wars’ movie in 2015 which will not be written or directed by George Lucas. (The creator fans love to hate will stay on in a creative consultant capacity.)
But fans of both “a galaxy far, far away” and The Mouse House have been creating awesome mash-up artwork as long as the internet (or at least DeviantArt) has been around.
Inspired by the multiple Disney/Star Wars toys and theme park crossovers (in addition to the beloved ‘Star Tours’ ride, Disney hosts an annual ‘Star Wars’ weekend), fans were imagining Mickey, Donald and the rest in the ‘Star Wars’-verse long before this new deal brought together two of pop culture’s biggest forces.
