Mickey Mouse’s STAR WARS Cameo

StarWarsLogoThere is a long history of hiding Mickey Mouse in various Disney films from 1982’s TRON to various Pixar films. But this is probably the first time that a Mickey Mouse cameo has been discovered in a film from three decades before it became the property of Disney.

The blog at the official Star Wars site has discovered something in a handful of background scenes in The Empire Strikes Back – computer displays that resemble Mickey’s silhouette. You can see them in the screen grabs below.

Now, I don’t think that anyone is saying that George Lucas was already hinting that he was thinking about selling his Lucasfilm empire to the House of Mouse way back then. It’s just a fun coincidence. Hopefully you’ve gotten a chuckle out of it like I did.
