Photographer Josh Rossi is a huge Star Wars fan. With The Last Jedi set to hit theaters later this month, Rossi decided to do something different for his family’s holiday photos this year: he went all out and faithfully recreated The Last Jedi movie posters for their Christmas cards.
Rossi is no stranger to going to great lengths for his creative personal projects. He’s the same photographer who spent $1,500 photographing his 3-year-old daughter as Wonder Woman and who photographed sick and disabled children as Justice League superheroes.
For his Christmas cards, Rossi set up studio lighting and a green screen backdrop, got his family into costumes by designer Julie Whiteley (who donated $1,500 worth), and shot a series of portraits of each person.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes video showing the portraits being made:
