Comic book artist André Araújo has created a wonderful print featuring the original Star Wars cast reimagined as characters from a story set in the Middle Ages. He told io9 that he was inspired to create the piece after reading a book on Portuguese history:
“Star Wars itself is a very classic type of story— about family, love, war, good vs. evil— so it basically fits in any period. But in specific the large armies, the existence of swords, knights and princesses, for example, are direct links to medieval folklore,” Araújo said.
Indeed—I would love to see an animated series based on this concept. You just have to imagine what C-3PO and R2-D2 would be like.
