The Empire Strikes Back… With vitamin C!
Give it to Disney, especially to their marketing team. The movie garnered so much hype with just a glimpse of a robotic hand touching R2-D2 and a shot of the Millennium Falcon—hype that translated to $57 million dollars on opening night.
But the thing is, they didn’t really need to. In case you didn’t know, Star Wars is a cultural phenomenon that spans decades of lore and created one of the most hardcore fandoms in the world. Set in a “galaxy far, far away”, the franchise created a set of the most epic characters such as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Han Solo and Chewbacca. Suffice to say there would always be someone to reference “Do or do not, there is no try” in the foreseeable future.
Artists and graphic designers all over the internet have created their own tribute to the series in celebration of the new movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Here are some of the best Star Wars tribute on Behance:
