John Raya Transforms NFL Team Helmets into Star Wars Concepts as ‘The Force Awakens’ Approaches + Actor John Boyega Interview

As the latest addition to the classic Star Wars story prepares to do record breaking box office numbers this weekend (December 18th release), one creative mind and apparent football fan decided to combine the “force” with a few of his favorite football team helmets.

John Raya created some of the coolest NFL headgear we either never got a chance to see, slipped our mind or just feels even more special with ‘The Force Awakens‘ around the corner. He took the time to bounce back and forth between both conferences, even using locations from the movie to add a realistic feel to his created team names.

Philadelphia (Dagobah) Yodas
