There’s no two ways about this next statement: the artists over on CG+ who made things for their “Star Wars: Re-imagined” series are absolute geniuses. Gallery posts like this are fairly straightforward in their creation. You really can’t get much simpler than things from around the internet put into a gallery so we can collectively fawn over how cool they are. Yet the creations in just the two dimensional section alone left us in an hours-long deep-dive into clicking on each and every project. There’s a 3D gallery that we haven’t even ventured into for fear of losing entire days to drooling over Star Wars art.
The idea for CG+’s contest was pretty simple. Take your favorite Star Wars thing and re-imagine it as something else. The artists involved (some of whom are professional) took that idea and sure did run with it. The gallery below has a few of our favorites but there are literally dozens, if not hundreds, more on their site waiting to be ogled. Let’s go over a few favorites that we wish were canon in the SW universe.
Blade Runner meets Rebel Alliance is just fine by us.
Pretty sure Grand Theft Auto: Tatooine is a game each and every one of us would buy in a heartbeat and we’re not even creeped out by human Chewbacca.
Speaking of mash-ups…
Zombified Yoda and a Mad Max version of Darth Vader are genre portmanteaus we never knew we needed so badly. No hero in either universe would stand a chance against either of these guys.
It’s so incredibly hard to pick a favorite but we’ll leave you with something that would have brought peace to the galaxy in the first week of any conflict. Who needs Jedi when you have Titanfall R2D2?
