There’s nothing my nerd-heart loves more than seeing fantasy and fiction come to life in… real life. It’s what our imaginations were made for. All our play as kids, every time we imagined something fantastic happening to us — those moments were our minds calling out for something magic in our everyday.
Star Wars is particularly suited for juxtaposition with real life, too. An evil force overtakes a planet to enact their will upon helpless people but a small group of smart, capable rebels fight back? SEEMS LEGIT AND FAMILIAR.
Anyway, enjoy this fun look at life in a galaxy close, close to us.
What would it be like to have Luke Skywalker in New York? I picture him as a hipster in Hell’s Kitchen or the Meat Packing district.
