What If Star Wars: The Force Awakens Was An Anime?

force-awakens

It is not secret that Star Wars takes inspiration from Japanese culture, be it in the kendo influence behind the light saber battles, the samurai-esque look of Darth Vader or even the fact that the first movie is basically a space opera version of Akira Kurosawa’s Hidden Fortress.

That said, what if I told you that some wonderful person on the internet has decided to bring Star Wars: The Force Awakens into the anime realm? Well that very thing has happened with a fan putting together an ‘anime opening’ video for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The video plays on all the tropes and even makes use of a song by perrenial anime music makers, J-rock band FLOW.

You can check out the Star Wars: The Force Awakens anime opening below. Let us know what you think of this lovely bit of mash up in the comments section.
