Obi-Wan Corbynobi: The Star Wars character that all Corbynistas have been waiting for

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has premiered to positive reviews, to the relief of casual and hardcore fans alike.

The film, set approximately 30 years after Return of the Jedi, follows the continued conflict between the Empire and the Rebel Alliance, now known as the First Order and the Resistance, respectively.

Almost unrelatedly, Nick Mackie, a writer, animation director and illustrator, has ingeniously envisioned a parallel between one of most famous Jedi knights on the light side of the force and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Obi-Wan Corbynobi. There are no words. It was so obvious.

The Labour leader certainly bears a resemblance to Sir Alec Guinness, if only in the strength of their beards.
