Fan Art Shows 'Arrested Development'-'Star Wars' Mash-Up

'Arrested Development' meets 'Star Wars'James Hibberd is fond of posting fan art mash-ups on his "Live Feed" blog over at The Hollywood Reporter. In the past, he has posted the 'Mythbusters' crew with a James Bond theme, 'Futurama' in the world of 'The Fifth Element,' and Conan O'Brien as "Coco the Barbarian" and in a stylish 'Mad Men' parody.

Hibberd's latest art posting is an 'Arrested Development'/'Star Wars' mash-up, in the style of the old 'Star Wars' movie posters. The poster features the Bluth clan, including Michael (Jason Bateman), Lindsay (Portia de Rossi), George (Will Arnett), and Lucille (Jessica Walter), as well as the banana stand and Tobias bare-chested in his cutoff shorts. You even get Buster (Tony Hale) in silhouette, holding his hook hand to the sky, a Bluth Industries truck, and a speeding, driverless Segue.

The poster is probably new to a lot of people, but a quick search shows it listed on a site called DigitalArt.org, posted by an artist named Chase Black in 2005. On the site, he calls it a "promotional illustration" for the show, which means some of you may have seen it before.

Whether you think this is old news or not, it's an amusing reminder of the show while we wait to hear whether the big screen version will ever actually start shooting.

I love this poster. As stated it's as old as the hills, but any excuse to say it again. MOVIE!! Please say it's happening, please!!! I'd give my left hand to see it. Then I'd be "all right".

Well, there you go. Before I published Nick's post, I searched for a previous post about this, vaguely thinking we had covered this before. I guess I didn't have good enough Googling skills to find this one. Oh, well. It's worth a second look.

By the way, I spoke to David Cross yesterday, and he gave me his interesting thoughts about an AD movie. Stay tuned...
