If Star Wars was an 80s high school movie...


In an alternate universe that we've literally just found out about, Star Wars is actually an 80s teen movie.

Designed by Deviant Art genius DenisM79, these sketches imagine Luke, Leia, Darth and the gang as characters in a Ferris Bueller-esque high school comedy.

Darth is a feared bully, Chewie is a lumbering stoner and Jabba is a janitor. Makes total sense to us.

You can see more of his rather brilliant work here.
