The Sukaiwaka Fortress is a fan remix project that re-edits Akira Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress with script changes, starwarsian dialogue and the music from Star Wars. In its own way, it completes the cycle that began when Kurosawa’s film inspired young George Lucas.
Currently scheduled for release in September this year, The Sukaiwaka Fortress has now received a rather impressive trailer, which you can watch below.
The film is being put together by ssj, who posted about it at our forums a few weeks ago. To find out more about the goals of the edit and to join the discussion, check out the relevant forum topic.
