OK, so George Lucas isn't filming another Star Wars sequel or prequel in Brooklyn. However, we wouldn't berate you if, after peeping these snaps of a blizzard-ed out Williamsburg, you felt like the director had the perfect stand-in for planet Hoth (we confess, we may have watched The Empire Strikes Back yesterday). Apparently, 'Billyburg resident, shutterbug, and model Henry Hargreaves thought so too, judging by his icy photos complete with photo-shopped in imagery familiar to Star Wars geeks: AT-AT walkers, Darth Vader, R2-D2 and C-3P0, and, of course, Tauntauns indigenous to the snowy world. Here's to hoping that Hargreaves escaped the Death Squadron Blizzard Force. (Gothamist)
