Any fans of Akira Kurosawa? I believe that both Dave Filoni and George Lucas shared in multiple interviews how they are huge fans of old Samurai movies, among other things and drew inspiration from them when coming up with cinematography, narrative themes etc.

The Jedi episode clearly payed homage to Akira Kurosawa and other Japanese directors: https://youtu.be/wuWFRIViGKQ

Https://youtube.com/LoreFreak I’ve been a Star Wars fan my entire life. The franchise truly affected me and I wouldn’t be who I am today without it - I’d like to share my passion while also trying to give back to the fandom.

I like all of those films. The Kurosawa films, Lone Wolf and Cub, Samurai Trilogy, the Zatoichi Films.
