Star Wars Battleships Crash All Over The World

Star Wars Battleships

Outside of movies and video games, the only way Star Wars battleships are likely to come into your life is in toy form. But can you imagine a world where Star Detroyers, TIE Fighters, and even the Millenium Falcon can drop out of the sky at any moment? French artist Nicolas Amiard visualized exactly that scenario in a new series of images that shows the world’s most iconic cities in the wake of some very colourful crash landings.

Evocative and convincing, these images bring to mind the crashed Star Destroyer that opens the latest Force Awakens trailer. As it turns out, there’s a very good reason for that. “I thought the scene of the crashed destroyer in the latest trailer very inspiring,” Amiard told Mashable. “Star Wars is an imaginary universe and bringing elements from this universe in our real world seemed to be a very interesting contrast to work on.”

Spanning no fewer than four continents, Amiard’s images place iconic battleships all over the globe. For a quick, Star Wars-inspired world tour, see examples of Amiard’s work below.
