Take a look at these Star Wars characters re-imagined as characters from a 80s teen movie. Drawn up by artist Denis Medri, these character portraits give us some idea of what Star Wars could have looked like if the studio decided it would make a better version of the Breakfast Club than a sci-fi movie.

The most fun depictions are of characters who are non-human in Star Wars. Yoda becomes a little man with a cane, and R2D2 and C3PO both become geeky teens. Chewbacca becomes a beastly young man who hangs out with a skinny boy, Han Solo, in short shorts and a stomach-baring top. The only disappointing thing is that Darth Vader doesn't get a new look from Medri.

People will hope to see more from Denis Medri in the future as they enjoy this series of photos, as well as his previous work re-imagining superheroes as Western characters.
