May the force be with you.

So I don’t know about you guys, but I know A LOT of people who are excited for the new Star Wars movie to come out this Thursday night/Friday. Personally, I don’t even remember seeing the first three films (episodes IV, V, VI thank you very much), but I’m not a complete hermit so I mostly know what happened. 

My most clear memory of the films was trying to figure out how George Lucas knew that a young Darth Vader would look a whole lot like Hayden Christensen before he was even born, I was clearly not very bright.

Since Star Wars is now a Disney franchise they’ve gone a little crazy with the product placement:

Guys, chill.

So, I’ve spent the rest of my brain power to add a bit of product placement to famous artworks. Who knew all of these artists were secret Star Wars fans!
