MTFBWY: Original Trilogy Japanese Star Wars Movie Posters (GALLERY)
MTFBWY! We’ve collected two for each of the three original films. So go ahead, take a look, and take a step into late 70s/early 80s state of the art movie marketing. And let's be honest, time and place and culture and history pretty much dictate that the original trilogy will never be matched.
May the Fourth be With You Again (Japan Style)
Here in Japan, the same popular characters are popular (although the bad guys are much more appreciated), but often they’re just doing other stuff. Like...well, for example: in Japan, the visage of an evil, genocidal dark lord is used to sell Goodyear Tires. Maybe because...both are black?
Giant Star Wars Snow Sculpture Built by Japanese Self Defense Force (Flashbacking)
Now that the building-sized artwork is complete, it seems Darth Vader is once again invading Japan, this time joined by three storm troopers, the Death Star and a TIE fighter. Best of all is his lightsaber, illuminated in red at night.
Japanese Darth Vader Showdown: New Samurai vs. Old Samurai (GALLERY) [TOP 15 of 2015]
[#14 of 2015's Top 15 Articles] It’s far from coincidence that George Lucas and the original Star Wars team’s Darth Vader character so easily transforms into a stylized Japanese warrior. Just look at the samples of Zunari Kabuto helmets - it’s much easier to pick out the ones that don’t remind us of Luke’s father!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (JAPANESE TRAILER)
There’s quite a bit more BB-8 (that’s because cute sells in Japan). We see more of supposed villian Kylo Ren and his rickety light saber (combined with that beat up, patchwork helmet, we’re starting to think this guy’s really into recycling). Two main characters, Rey and Finn, actually introduce themselves here, too
Tiny lightsaber touch pen for your smartphone or tablet! With the push of a button it lights up and gives you the...force. Of some kind.
