Samurai Star Wars

Many of you Akira Kurosawa fans already know this iconic director’s deep influence on Western films. From the Sergio Leone’s spaghetti westerns (starrring Clint Eastwood), to countless remakes of The Seven Samurai (including Oceans 11, The Guns of Navarone, The Dirty Dozen, The Magnificent Seven), Kurosawa is widely accepted as one of the most prolific directors in the history of film.

George Lucas has acknowledged influence of Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress on Star Wars, so I was particularly excited to find US digital artist, Clinton Felker’s re-imagined Star Wars characters envisioned as Feudal Japanese Samurai.

Fantastic work, and intended or not, a great homage to Akira Kurosawa.
