What do Disney animators do in their spare time? Keep creating, of course! Animation artists (and arguably, world’s most artistic power couple) Griselda and Normand Lemay’s current obsession and artistic inspiration is Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Due to their love of cats, they figured that their favorite galactic gang could use some feisty feline sidekicks!

We’d like to give a special thanks to Griz and Norm for letting us share these amazing illustrations! (They must know we can’t resist anything that includes Disney and cats.)
