I'm bringing you this cover I did for the magazine of the Italian Star Wars fanclub, Yavin4 ([link]), Living Force Magazine. Specifically, it will be published on the 37th issue, coming out in January 2013. It's only in Italian though.
To cut a long story short, this was a super cool thing for me, as I was interviewed by a member of the club during my first... convention in my town in November, so this issue is going to feature this cover, and my interview!!
After the crew saw my Star Wars/Disney drawings (which I made WAY before Disney bought Lucasfilm) they asked me to draw something along that line. So I went with a Donald/Anakin fighting a Mickey/Obi-Wan in Episode III, on the Mustafar platform!
I barely made it to the deadline though, which was on December 23rd, as I couldn't work on it before since I was filled with assignments and exams @__@
Now I can't really write stuff anymore as it's past 2 AM, I'm still working on commissions and I'm absolutely dying...
Hope you enjoy though!!
Merry Christmas once again! <)
PS: qualche info pił dettagliata riguardo alla pubblicazione per i connazionali
Copertina di Living Force Magazine #37 (inverno 2012; in uscita nel gennaio 2013) - la rivista di Star Wars, del Fantastico e della Fantascienza organo ufficiale del Club nazionale Yavin 4 [link]
"I have failed you, Donald... I have failed you."
"I should have known the Jedi were plotting to take over!"
"Donald, Chancellor Palpatine is evil!"
"From my point of view the Jedi are evil!"
"Well then, you are LOST!"
"It's over Donald! I have the high ground."
"You under estimate my power."
"Don't try it..."
"YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE!!! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not JOIN THEM!! 'BRING BALANCE TO THE FORCE! Not leave it in DARKNESS!'"
"I HATE YOU!!!!!!"
"You were my brother, Donald. I loved you..."
This ridicoulus war will never end D:
Three things about this:
1. This looks pretty amazing. Slightly out of place and parodistic of course, but due to the fact that I've already read some older Disney comics that had many SW references, this looks just great to me^^
2. I hope the next few SW movies will not look like that. But I can assume Disney would like to make it as family appealing as possible so they'll make the movies about an Gungan Jedi. Or better, imagine Darth Vader singing an villain song.
3. I'm pretty much on Donalds side in this fight. I've always prefered him over Micky.
Disney: "We own Star Wars" ...(To Star Wars)... "Alright you have funding to your movies, do fuck all you want but try not to embarrass yourselves and most importantly us.
Miramax, Touchtone Pictures, Hollywood pictures, ESPN, ABC Studios and MARVEL are property of Disney. And their products are totally different, one each other. And some movies are made for adults.
It's very early to judge, and after all the Episode VII script is in the hands of Michael Arndt, that guy wrote "Little Miss Sunshine"!!! So I do think we're in really good hands! Time will tell
Liars, that's a big word. I can't really see what's so bad in taking already existing stories and adapting them into beautiful animated movies. After all they never claimed they invented the story, everybody knows they're adaptations from the beginning. Besides, you won't find animations as expressive as Disney's anywhere. Not to mention the music. Their animation is just pure art.
So what about Dreamworks? We should call them liar as well, since How To Train Your Dragon and Rise Of The Guardians are both based on existing books
I don't know about Aladdin, but again, you're mentioning Pixar movies. Pixar and Disney used to be different things back when those movies were made, and I'm talking strictly about Disney's movies and animations.
And Oswald was created by both Disney and Ub Iwerks. Then Oswald was basically taken over by Universal, so Disney created Mickey.
Anyway here you're just denying and ignoring all the things I mentioned before...
I don't care about Pixar, but Disney's movies artistic value is undeniable.
"Huh ha! It's over Donald, I have the high ground! Huh ha!"
*cuts off his limbs*
"You darn stupid... *Donald Duck angry noise*"
I love this!
