MopDog Monday: Hungarian Star Wars

Okay, so this is something that has been going around on Hungarian social media for about a week now. Since everything is about Star Wars this week, I thought I might as well post it here. It's untranslatable, but oh well.

So, the pictures are the glorious result of the art of one Marton Ádám Marton (click for his FB page). He decided to create some Star Wars fan art with a Hungarian twist. The art style is a copy of a very famous, classic Hungarian cartoon series titled Hungarian Folktales that aired between 1977 and 2011. It is probably the most well known and most beloved of our classic cartoon tradition, and the art style is recognizable to pretty much everyone. If you want to watch some of the folktales, click here. Some of them even have English subtitles.

What MAM did, brilliantly, was taking scenes from New Hope, and drawing them in the style of Hungarian Folktales. Observe:

The caption reads "Why are you rebelling?" but in an untranslatable archaic Hungarian dialect that you mostly hear in folktales.

And my absolute favorite:

Caption reads: "Let the puli win!"

Even Hungarians know that Han shot first:

Go to his FB page and share the love. Show your friends how culturally enlightened you are.

Bonus for nerds
Here are some useful Star Wars phrases in Hungarian that you can show off at a nerd party:

Réges-rég, egy messzi-messzi galaxisban (A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away)

Az Erő legyen veled (May the Force be with you)

Én vagyok az apád (I am your father)

Hagyjuk nyerni a pulit (Let the puli win)
