Daryl Dixon takes up a blaster, Michonne grabs a lightsaber in Star Wars/The Walking Dead mash-ups


The Force is strong with The Walking Dead in a set of new mash-ups that transport beloved characters rom the AMC series into the shoes of characters from a galaxy far, far away.

The Walking Dead franchise’s Twitter unveiled a few mash-ups of Daryl Dixon, Michonne, and others in the mold of iconic Star Wars characters, while calling for fans to do the same.

Some of the mash-ups including Michonne trading in her katana for Kylo Ren’s hilted lightsaber, while Daryl Dixon’s signature crossbow is replaced with Han Solo’s blaster. Fan-submitted crossover images range from Rick learning the ways of the Jedi to a poor, adorable Ewok becoming a brain-hungry, still adorable walker-Ewok.

Check out a few of the best crossovers below, and head over to The Walking Dead’s official Twitter feed to see Glenn Skywalker, C-3PO as an armless walker, and other mash-ups. And for more on The Force Awakens, check out EW’s review of the film.
