Fans of Star Wars and Winnie the Pooh, it's time to welcome Wookie the Chew–an adorable mashup of the two pop culture icons. Florida-based artist James Hance has combined the beloved books by A.A. Milne and the wildly popular films of George Lucas into crossover illustrations that reimagine Pooh as a younger, less ornery version of Chewbacca.
Hance's whimsical series includes other characters from the Star Wars universe, including: Han Solo as Winnie the Pooh‘s Christopher Robin, and a gloomy Eeyore who has taken the form of an Imperial Walker (AT-AT)–it even has a bow tied around its tail.
Each of these artworks recall the illustrative stylings of artist E.H. Shepard, who is best known for drawing the Pooh characters that we still cherish today. Although Hance has shifted their likeness, Milne's timeless stories infuse the Star Wars drama with sweet displays of love and friendship.
