#1 - Donald as Captain Picard: suggestion by @chrispy2143
As with most suggestions, I don’t know the reasons behind this Disney/ Star Trek mashup. These days, I don’t receive many Star Trek commission order, and much less in mashups. It’s a shame.
In reality, this is just a drawing of Donald in a Next Generation era Federation Captain’s uniform. To make it more Picard-like, I tried to feature baldness with a reflected glint off of his head. His pose too, needed to be iconic Picard. I chose that moment when the Captain orders navigation to “Engage.”
Not satisfied, the captain needed a word balloon which naturally is “Make it so.” In my rush, I had confused the “Engage” gesture with “Make it so.” Then it quickly became, “Quack if so.”
As a second thought, as I’m now typing this, it would be amusing to see Captain Donald adjusting his uniform with a quick tug down, as the officers do when they stand up from sitting. It wouldn’t be a better drawing. It may be a cute 2-seconds of satire in animation. I dare somebody to MAKE THAT SO.
#2 - Merlin Training Ian Lightfoot: suggestion by @jorgem_0708
Statistically speaking, this one was a tie for first place with only 2 fewer total likes at the time of this writing.
For the kids out there who aren’t yet familiar, Merlin is from Walt Disney’s animated tale of a young King Arthur, The Sword in the Stone. Merlin is, of course, a wizard. Ian is from Disney/Pixar’s yet to be released, Onward.
Regardless of how the trailer hints to Ian’s relationship to magic, which isn’t much at all, this is a “what if” scenario. The books on the head is typical posture training included in etiquette montages a la The Princess Diaries. The knee raised high alludes to The Karate Kid, again with the training montage. A Yoda in a backpack callback just didn’t find its way in this drawing. Although Merlin has been shown to be able to change his size and shape, probably would not read well if he wasn’t at full size.
1x hidden Mickey.
#3 - The Mandalorian and Child Having a Tea Party at Disneyland: suggestion by @jesstothesmith & @akoymdf
Of several suggestions that featured The Mandalorian’s “Child” a.k.a. “Baby Yoda,” this one I thought that I could mashup two. One envisioned the pair having a tea party. Another cast Mandalorian taking the child to Disneyland.
Where can one enjoy a proper tea party in the famed theme park? Probably the Plaza Pavilion on Main Street. But Fantasyland in more iconic and more picturesque, and is had 2 attractions inspired by Alice in Wonderland. So the, tea party in impossibly - strike that - magically located in the courtyard.
For extra measure, Mad Hatter riding on the shoulders of March Hare have dropped in for tea time - as is you couldn’t tell that this was a drawing of a tea party.
The child gets a bit lost in the composition. The floating exclamation mark is an attempt to bring more focus on the little creature.
3x hidden Mickeys (not including a balloon, 2x Mickey ears hats or a logo on a Mickey ears hat).
1x Baby Oyster.
