It’s an understated fact that women are under-represented in popular cinema. I don’t have the numbers, but you should look them up… It’s kinda nuts. However, Madrid based artist Estela Villas is trying to help the cause with a gender-bending experiment involving some of Hollywood’s most beloved characters.
As you can see, Estela has re-cast some of the title characters in Star Wars as women, and the results are fabulous. From Darth Vader, a Storm Trooper, Boba Fett and more, her creative illustrations show us that these characters can still be all they need to be as women. I wouldn’t mind a female Vader. Kinda reminds me of my girlfriend in the morning. Haha… Too soon?
