Celebrating Asian Star Wars Art

   I'm celebrating the inclusion of 2 Asian characters in the latest Star Wars film, Rogue One with 42 artworks from Asian artists, as well as Asian inspired art. Donnie Yen stars as Chirrut Imwe a blind Jedi master & Wen Jiang plays Baze Malbus. 
   & unfortunately, also paying tribute to the sudden passing of Carrie Fisher. :(

   Rogue One has one of the most inclusive casts for a big budget Hollywood movie in 2016, with Diego Luna, Jimmy Smits, Forest Whitaker, Riz Ahmed & of course Felicity Jones as the second female protagonist in a row for the new Disney/Star Wars franchise. Star Wars has certainly come a long way from Lando Calrissian & Lieutenant Telsij (Gray Two).

   As we know, Star Wars has extensive Asian influences, particularly from Japan. Lucas is a huge fan of Akira Kurosawa & his film Hidden Fortress is the blueprint for A New Hope. The mythos of the Jedi order is based around bushido, the samurai code & the force draws from Taoist & Zen principles. Darth Vader's costume was clearly derived from samurai armor.
