A funny thing happened when the Walt Disney Company bought Lucas Arts and the Star Wars empire. It wasn’t the billions that were reportedly paid for the right to the beloved epic. It wasn’t that that the biggest entertainment company in the world just got bigger. It was the artistic inspiration that the business move evoked. After the news of the acquisition made the headlines, artists, cartoonists and illustrators got busy with a slew of Disney x Star Wars mash-ups.
In honor of May the Fourth and the upcoming Star Wars Day at Disneyland and Disney World, we’ve collected 20 of the coolest Star Wars and Disney mash-ups created honoring a marriage of these two beloved and iconic brands. Check them out here!
