    Those who've watched the entire Star Wars saga may have noticed some Japanese culture elements were used to create the universe. For example, the Jedis and Samurais have a few more resemblances than just the sword they wield. You can also find obvious similarities in the costumes and the rules they live by.

    Star Wars has also been influenced by Akira Kurosawa movies, including classics such as Seven Samurais, Yojimbo, and Rashomon, among others. Some even say Star Wars took some inspiration from the anime/manga series Space Battleship Yamato from 1974, although Star Wars creator George Lucas has never said so.

    With Star Wars: Visions, you could say the roles invert as Star Wars works as the source material for anime, allowing fans of the series to watch Star Wars stories being told through the vision of various acclaimed anime studios.
