Star Wars Characters Re-imagined In Incredible Medieval Fantasy Designs


Characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars are re-imagined in medieval fantasy art. The Clone Wars is the popular Star Wars animated series that just finished its seven season run last month. The show is set in the past, during the prequel trilogy, and originally concluded in 2014. However, Disney surprised fans by bringing a new season 7 to its streaming service, Disney+. Star Wars: The Clone Wars features several well-known characters in the universe, including Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, it also helped fans fall in love with newer heroes like Ahsoka Tano, who even went on to voice a cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars was a big success for Disney+, as was fellow Star Wars series The Mandalorian when it premiered with the streamer in November. Following the series finale of The Clone Wars, it makes sense Lucasfilm is looking to hang on to characters featured on the popular show. A live-action Obi-Wan Kenobi series is in the works, which will see Ewan McGregor reprise his role from the films. Ahsoka will also make her live-action debut soon, with many assuming she’ll be played by Rosario Dawson in The Mandalorian, though that isn’t confirmed yet. However, Disney+ could have an even bigger role in mind for Ahsoka, as there are rumors of a standalone show and a part in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

While fans wait to reunite with many of their favorite Star Wars: The Clone Wars characters, artist Jake Bartok has a treat for fans. Earlier today, he shared images of Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka, Obi-Wan, and Captain Rex. However, there’s a twist, as Bartok created the artwork in the style of medieval fantasy. Check out all four pieces below:

Because the Star Wars universe is so rich, fans find endless ways to put their own spin on characters, especially in fan art. One Instagram user has even recently taken to photoshopping classic Star Wars characters onto photos of old military personnel. Though it may seem random, it works surprisingly well, considering “Wars” is literally in the title of the franchise. The possibilities are virtually endless when it comes to fan art, and it’s always nice to see talented artists make the most of what Star Wars has to offer.

Like the military fan art, the medieval fantasy take on the characters of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is impressively seamless. All of the characters have minor tweaks to fit the theme, but still remain true to who they are. Though fans may be disappointed Star Wars: The Clone Wars is over, at least they know fans like Bartok will continue coming up with unique ways to honor the series.
