The Walking Dead just concluded the first half of season 8 while Star Wars released its latest installment. Now The Walking Dead has fun with both fandoms on social media.
There’s no question that when it comes to fans, the TWD Family stands tall among the most loyal fanbases around. With The Walking Dead on hiatus for the winter break, The Walking Dead social media account had some fun mixing it up with the Star Wars fans with an imaginative mashup poster featuring the two franchises.
In case you hadn’t noticed, Star Wars: The Last Jedi came out on December 15 and fans all over the world have been rushing to see it over and over again.
Not surprisingly, the good folks behind The Walking Dead’s Instagram account had an idea to recreate the Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie poster featuring beloved characters from The Walking Dead with the tagline “All Out War.”
Here’s the post:
As you can see, Rick Grimes replaces Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker, while Rey and Kylo Ren are replaced with Michonne and Negan. Carol, Daryl, Simon, Eugene and many other familiar faces appear on the poster as well, highlighting their “Light Side” or “Dark Side” affiliations. Missing from the poster, of course, is Carl.
This is yet another fun way The Walking Dead has crossed paths with other fandoms. We have already seen TWD references in HBO’s juggernaut Game of Thrones, prompting lots of memes and comparisons between The Walking Dead’s trademark Walkers and Game of Thrones’ White Walkers.
