Episode 06 - Unpacking Star Wars

UD - Episode 06 - Unpacking Star Wars.jpg

In this episode, we talk about how Star Wars has been an inspirational movie for designers of all ages. This movie series that started in the late 70’s is staged in the future where inhabitation of different planets, technology, and fashion were ahead of its time.

Star Wars is a science fiction movie that focuses on wars between different groups in space. The design of the various scenes, vehicles, fashion, and other aspects of the movies provide a glimpse into a future world that one could only imagine. However, following these movies, we can see how real world technology has evolved to a point where the possibility of mass space travel is becoming tangible.

During our discussion, Mike and I talk about how the founder of Star Wars, George Lucas, was inspired by the Japanese culture, especially the samurai as depicted in the films of Akira Kurosawa. We talk about how Star Wars is an inspiration for people of all ages, including children, and how designers can learn from the movie and its concept art.
