What if Star Wars Characters Attended High School in the Eighties?

By on August 6, 2013

While you may have seen this floating around in the Internet tubes already, it’s definitely worth a refresher look as back to school time is upon us again. Created by Denis Medri (the same artist that created these awesome Justice League in the Old West illustrations), this collection of art combines relationships between characters in the original trilogy with fashion statements and design elements from a typical high school during the 1980’s.

The artist really excels as capturing those iconic moments in the original trilogy like Luke staring off in the Tatooine sunset or Boba Fett encasing Han in “carbonite.” Characters depicted within the series of illustrations include Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, Han Solo, R2-D2, C-3PO, Palpatine and many others.

You can see Medri’s full portfolio here, but check out the entire Star Wars High School collection below:
