Han Solo and Princess Leia – The Retirement Years

This wonderful piece is by James Hance and shows what life for our favorite Jedi/Princess and Smuggler might be like as they move into their golden years and get animated by Pixar. It is an adorable salute to both Star Wars and Up and I think I might want it for my wall. Luckily prints are available. If you like Star Wars characters in love you might also want to check out his Little Rebels piece.

Premake of Up! (1965)

What if… Walt Disney produced “Up” in the 1960s?

Ah, the swinging 60s. It was a time when films were dominated by flying automobiles and flying nannies. It was also a time when live-action Disney films flourished and spawned such hits as “The Love Bug”, “The Absent-Minded Professor”, and “The Monkey’s Uncle”. In an alternate reality, this era also saw the production of the high-flying adventure-comedy, “Up!”. Starring Spencer Tracy and Kirk Douglas, “Up!” followed the oddball escapades of the elderly widower, Carl Fredricksen, and his earnest band of misfits as they traveled through the wilds of South America. Produced two decades after “Saludos Amigos” and “The Three Caballeros”, the film continued the Disney tradition of telling stories set against Latin American backdrops.
