Welcome to the Legion!

We have a little over a year left to wait for Star Wars: Episode VII, which opens December 18, 2015. Today we’ve got something cool for you 90s kids. LaughingSquid just posted some pixelated Star Wars scenes created using Microsoft Paintbrush on the Windows 3.1 operating system in the late 1990s.


Brothers Robert and James Dastoli of Dastoli Digital created a ton of Star Wars paintings and they’re posting one a day on their Tumblr page StarWarsPaintbrush leading up to the December 2015 release. “My brother and I made hundreds and hundreds of pixelated Star Wars pictures using Microsoft Paintbrush on Windows 3.1. We would spend hours working on each of them and many of them have an impressive level of detail and accuracy. Most importantly though, they serve as a charming reminder of the power of our fandom. Originally we made these pictures during the lead-up to ‘Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace,’ and now we will be posting a new picture on Tumblr every day during the lead-up to ‘Star Wars Episode VII.'”


Pretty cool, right? Head over to Laughing Squid for more and check out StarWarsPaintbrush each day to see more!
