In the wake of Marvel’s What If…?, Star Wars followers have become a little obsessed with the concept of an analogous collection set within the galaxy far, distant that might check out different universes within the sci-fi saga’s multiverse the place all the things is way totally different. Think about it, the choices are countless. What if Rey joined Kylo Ren on the Dark Side? What if Qui-Gon lived? And, probably the most fascinating one among all, what if Anakin by no means turned Vader?
With Obi-Wan Kenobi each bringing again Hayden Christensen and introducing a younger Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair), this idea has been on the minds of fans a lot lately. And, whereas we await a Star Wars What If…? collection to occur, this beautiful but heartbreaking piece of fan art work offers us a tear-jerking style of what this AU we so desperately need to go to would appear like.
As shared on Twitter by @zendayazwrld, however initially created by artist Jabberwockyface, this unbelievable composition depicts the Skywalker household in silhouette, imagining a happier timeline the place Anakin and Padme raised their two twins, Luke and Leia, collectively. Probably even dwelling in a peaceable galaxy the place the Empire by no means rose. And Obi-Wan was little doubt an adoring uncle to the children. Dang it, there’s one thing in my eye…
This masterful piece, and the way in which it’s gone viral on social media, simply reminds us once more why Lucasfilm and Disney Plus are blind for not having jumped on doing a What If…?-style present already. And if there’s a downside with getting an animated showcase the bottom for no matter motive, why not do it as a Marvel Comics collection as a substitute? They might actually simply print pages and pages of Anakin and Padme being healthful mother and father and folks would mainline it.
Alas, within the universe we’re caught in, it’s as much as followers to make use of their appreciable inventive skills to make Star Wars AUs a actuality. As for what Lucasfilm and Disney Plus are providing, Obi-Wan Kenobi streams new episodes on Wednesdays.
