Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, using STAR WARS as the starting point!
This week on EPISODE ZERO they explore Akira Kurosawa's samurai epic THE HIDDEN FORTRESS (1958), which inspired George Lucas to tell the story of STAR WARS from the perspective of two droids, and which set the storytelling template for THE PHANTOM MENACE!
