What if the ‘war’ in Star Wars was resolved peacefully? Except if you start smoking in a non-smoking area. If you do that you should prepare for the worst.
My little brother asked me to make a Star Wars where Luke Skywalker looked like him. And fortunately he basically looks like Luke already, except he has glasses. So I made this short fan-animation and asked a friend of mine to help me out with the audio. (synopsis via Laughing Squid (c) Juhász Márk)
Edwin Starr may have asked, in song, “War, huh, good god / What is it good for / Absolutely nothing” but he wasn’t the first to query the usefulness of conflict and you can guarantee he won’t be the last.
Juhász Márk, a Budapest, Hungary-based animator is someone who has asked the question too, prompted by his little brother, querying whether there might have been a nonviolent way to solve the war beneath the Rebels and the Imperial Empire “a long time time ago in a galaxy far, far away”.
Turns out all you need in Star Peacefully Resolved Conflicts, is a robust game of chess between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker to get things sorted.
How it all plays out is gloriously funny and very, very clever and you will wonder at the end of this delightful two minute piece of space-based animation why more wars aren’t solved this way.
