Star Wars: A New Hope Retold In 32 Icons

10 Feb

There are many ways to explain the story of Star Wars, and no matter how you tell it, people are always going to be fascinated by the science fiction world. I think I have seen everything from YouTube clips of clueless people trying to tell the story of Star Wars, to complete pocket comic books retelling it. I always enjoy the way people see this huge adventure differently. The characters seem to have their own individual lives in a galaxy far far away, for real that is. It’s a great way to escape reality every once in a while, and I think we will be laughing one day when we have droids of our own and compare them to C-3PO and R2-D2. It’s completely beyond me, by the way, how thin that guy (Anthony Daniels) who played C-3PO must have been back then.

So how many ways can you come up with to retell the Star Wars story, any episode that is? I think until today, I could come up with quite a few, but never did it occur to me that you could completely retell it in small icons that make the story even more interesting. It’s almost like checking out a timeline, but with a whole different aspect to it.

Designer Wayne Dorrington is a master of the icons, and the force is strong with him. He designed and created this awesome Star Wars: A New Hope retold in icons, and you can be sure it’s going to be about the coolest thing you have seen all week. Now to all of you Star Wars fans out there, this is what a real fan does. Now it’s up to you to come up with something that is better. Brilliant!
