Winnie The Pooh Characters Enter The Star Wars Universe
Have you guys seen that new Star Wars/Little Women mash-up? No? Well it may be one of the only fictional pairings we haven’t seen out of artists over the last year or two. The vast majority of stereotypically-themed characters in the Star Wars universe lend themselves easily to re-interpretation. And here we find them mixed with the jubilantly naive clan from A.A. Milne’s most famous creations. (Side note: After writing that first sentence, I found out there is actually a piece of fan fiction called “I Am Jo’s Slash” that combines those two disparate classics.)
Artist Michael Robinson , however, uses a strictly visual medium for combining George Lucas’ universe of good and evil with Winnie the Pooh and his gang in what Robinson calls “Star Acres.” Not the most original title, sure, but it’s the art we’re here for.
While the drawings are obviously well-crafted with spot-on caricatures and coloring, it looks like the character pairings exist solely in how Robinson could make a quick pun off of the name. Thus we have, and I say this with the utmost respect, one of the fiction’s least savvy beings as one of the universe’s most dastardly bad guys. I mean, Pooh is good for his Zen mechanics every so often, but I doubt he’s working on galactic domination. Similarly, Rabbit’s personality to me is like Woody Allen taking a placebo instead of anti-anxiety medicine. So I doubt he’s striking fear into everyone in his field of Force-choking, but it’s cool to see a Vader helmet with rabbit ears.
Okay, so the sage advice of Owlbi-Wan makes sense, but I’m having trouble figuring out how a love triangle between Roo, Christopher Robin, and Piglet would go. I’m not picturing it too hard or anything, so there’s no reason to call the cops. Enjoy the rest of the pictures below.
