Re: Question to those most disappointed with the SW prequels

Lucas and others involved with the original film have more or less admitted that Hidden Fortress was a major influence on ANH, right down to the two droids being stand-ins for the two Japanese villagers who served as travel companions and comic relief in the Kurosawa film. Lucas embraced Kurosawa's influences and style.
