Illustrator Nate Boyd has created a unique mashup between two very different pop culture phenomenons: Disney and Star Wars.

Boyd has managed to incorporate the two different worlds through his minor alterations of the infamous Disney and Star Wars icons. What is more interesting is that instead of portraying Mickey Mouse as the hero, Boyd chose to feature Donald Duck as Luke Skywalker.

The reason, according to Nate Boyd's blog, is "Usually, Mickey Mouse is always the one to be portrayed as Luke Skywalker, which does make more sense, but I've always loved Donald Duck and wanted to draw him as the hero from Tatooine."

Nate Boyd completed his Disney Star Wars mashup in three series, with the first focusing on the many changes of Skywalker. Nate Boyd's series is a must-see for any pop culture junkie. Stats for Combined Character Illustrations Trending: Older & Buzzing
