<strong>Star Wars: Visions</strong> (animated short films) - a general discussion thread - * <strong>SPOILERS</strong> *
Time

Eastern influences are here from the beginning: Darth Vader suit is clearly inspired by Samurai armor. But Star Wars isn’t basically a remake of The Hidden Fortress. These two films have a lot in common, but they are also very different, I think.

This remake thing keeps repeated, and it’s bothering me! I’m wondering if it’s been somewhat blown out of proportion to undermine Lucas achievements? Like he’s not that a good movie director, he just copied Akira Kurosawa.

<strong>Disney+</strong> streaming platform : <strong>Star Wars content</strong> &amp; various other info
Time

From the official site: Everything Star Wars on Disney+

May not be up to date, but what’s interesting is that (at least on iPad) each link on that page opens directly in the Disney+ app. A quick way to access Star Wars content on Disney+, and to check availability in your country. (to my disappointment, I found that none of the Vintage Collection is available in France)

Discussion: Star Wars Model Kits - why so expensive?
Time

I don’t really know what’s going on, but I think regarding the Bandai Star Wars model kits that the pandemic affected the manufacturing and so a lot of kits became unavailable, especially via the official US distributor. So the prices are for direct Japan imports, for what was left of the pre-pandemic stock. Hopefully the situation will soon improve. Be patient, young padawan!
