Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has opened with a near worldwide release, and artist Noho Frog has been celebrating with anime styled Star Wars art! Their art almost feels like a peek into what a slice of life version of Star Wars would feel like with the characteristic group pictures that show no pain, only the joy from the journey together.
Noho Frog channels a little bit of Miyazaki and his love of "Ma" or emptiness in quiet moments. You almost feel like you're being sucked into the emotions of the moment.
Of course no tribute is complete without collapsing the heroes from different parts of the series into a single frame and exploring a bit of the serious emotions in the series.
And while you are at it, take a look at these Star Wars anime shorts.
I grew up traveling around the world with my parents who practice and teach medicine. We spent 6 years in South Asia, including Japan, and my anime obsession began there. Sports, horror, and Seinen are my favorite genres. Favorite quote: "Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does." by William James
