fans of starwars they can’t wait to see Obi-Wan KenobiAnd a few days after the series about the legendary character arrives at Disney Plus, thousands of theories and conjectures about what we will see on the screen have filled the Internet.

Well, it turns out that now the same director of the series, Deborah Chow, is the one who compared the next issue of Star Wars with nothing more and nothing less than Joker and Logan, two films that undoubtedly gave a lot to talk about when they arrived in theaters .

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney Plus, which premieres this month, takes place in the gap between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, and follows in the footsteps of the Jedi Master most loved in the Star Wars saga.

What did the director of the series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” say?

“I think what I was most excited about was getting the chance to do a character-driven story, in a similar way, it’s a different tone, but something like Joker or Logan, where you pull a character from a big franchise and then you really have time. and you go much deeper into the character. I found that very exciting to do in Star Wars,” Chow said, according to statements obtained by Total Film.

AmericanPost.News reports that Joker and Logan add to several comparisons made by Chow, who has previously said she was greatly influenced by “gritty, poetic westerns” such as “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Cowardly Robert Ford” (2007) and “The Proposal.” (2005).

Star Wars took inspiration from the great Akira Kurosawa

The “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series will be similar to Joker and Logan, according to the director.

Similarly, he made a nod to the world-renowned director Akira Kurosawa, whose work was a great inspiration for George Lucas and the creation of Star Wars as we know it.

“I love Kurosawa. For me there is a strong correlation between the Jedi and the Ronin, especially in this period when all Jedi are persecuted. I looked at what you should do if you are the last samurai. You are more than just a warrior. There is also a lot of ethical code that goes with it, in a world that has changed a lot. That had a very big effect on what we tried to do,” Chow also told Total Film last month.
