SWNN Video: Three Outlaw Samurai – Another Movie That Inspired Rian Johnson for The Last Jedi!
Three Outlaw Samurai is another one of the films Rian Johnson revealed might have inspired bits and pieces of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. A work of the Japanese director Hideo Gosha, Three Outlaw Samurai explores themes of duty, betrayal, and honor, and how a simple, yet critical decision, can change one’s conception of each.
Rian cited the film for “the look and feel of its sword fights and its general sense of pulpy fun,” in an interview with Empire Magazine.
