Remember the commercial photographer who turned sick and disabled children into Justice League heroes? He’s back, and this time his family have received the Star Wars treatment.
A Jedi at Photoshop, Josh Rossi decided to put his skills to use for this year’s family Christmas cards. The results are hilarious, outlandish, and brilliant all at once.
Ahead of the release of "The Last Jedi" on December 15, the self-proclaimed Star Wars obsessive landed on this subject matter for the card’s theme, transforming his family into the characters.
Many of his Photoshop projects aim to empower and encourage children, to illustrate to them that they can be anything they wish to be. This project was no different and included not only he, but his wife Roxana as General Leia, his daughter Nellee as Rey, and his one-year-old son Josh Jr. as Kylo Ren.
Speaking of casting his youngest child as the film's villain, he said, “[Josh Jr. is] a little hellion that doesn’t sleep. He was having the most issues because he can barely walk … It’s pretty insane working with kids but we somehow make it work. Photoshop is my friend.”
Featuring to-detail costumes created by professional designer Julie Whiteley, he created several mock-up teaser posters to front the cards. Following the shoot, Rossi spent two weeks making sure everything was perfect.
