Japanese Star Wars prints offer more tentacles

George Lucas was influenced by Akira Kurosawa's samurai movies — so what might Star Wars look like if it were set in feudal Japan? Artist Steve Bialik reimagines everyone from Admiral Ackbar to Boba Fett as a Japanese woodblock print.

Bialik is currently offering prints from his "Ninja Star: Wars" series for sale — $15 for the individual prints or $75 for the complete set.
