When Mickey Mouse Appeared in ‘The Empire Strikes Back’

If you’re wondering what a Disney Star Wars universe looks like, look no further than The Empire Strikes Back, where everyone’s favorite mouse makes an appearance in the background.

Mickey Mouse can be spotted a few times on a display panel during the epic lightsaber duel between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. Star Wars Blog writer Pablo Hidalgo writes, “Just pointing out something that you’ll now never be able to un-see.”

Check out the images from Hidalgo’s post here.

Was this a sneak peek at the Disney/Lucasfilm deal, light years ago? Do you think it was the will of the force or purely coincidence? Let us know what you think in the comments.
