Artist reimagines ‘Star Wars’ as 1980s high school comedy
It’s highly unlikely that once the Star Wars license returns to Marvel next year that we’ll see the original trilogy reimagined as a 1980s high-school comedy, but after seeing Denis Medri’s take on Luke, Leia and the gang, I now realize that’s exactly what I want to read. (Hey, someone at Lucasfilm greenlit Star Wars: Detours, so stranger things have happened. Of course, Disney quickly shelved the project, so …)
Medri offers up a Han Solo with nunchakus, short-shorts and Pontiac Firebird, Nerd-droids with pocket protectors, motocross-racing Vader, Boba Fett and stormtroopers, Principal Palpatine and so much more. It’s fast times at Mos Eisley High … or something.
See some of Medri’s work below, and more at Behance.
