Star Wars Parody Posters: Global Financial Crisis

Here are some politically motivated posters, parodying the iconic Star Wars scrolling intro text.

I decided to write three short statements based on the events unfolding around the financial crisis, but narrate the situation as if it was the preface to a Star Wars saga.

The statements remain scathing and cynical yet bare a slightly comical attitude towards the recession, and it doesn't take too much of an imagination to see the similarities between this real life event and George Lucas' s fictional universe of scum and villainy!

It often feels like our political leaders are living on a different planet to us anyway… sometimes light-years away!
