“The Willow That Wasn’t”

At Tell Forward, Shanth Enjeti shares a gallery of Moebius’ art for the fantasy film, Willow. “Moebius shows himself to be a master of understanding George Lucas’ influences for this film, which included Akira Kurosawa’s Noh influenced samurai films. His use of a Noh theater mask for the character of Sorsha is one of my favorite decisions. Another example of Moebius’ playfulness as a creative thinker is his making the Kael character a purple beast with a tattoo of a green dragon on his forehead. Essentially, a monster who has a tattoo of a monster on him!” (Thanks, Jared!)
