Shogun (Disney+)
« on: Nov 02, 2023 at 11:29 PM »


SHOGUN
Created for television by Rachel Kondo and Justin Marks
Based on James Clavell’s 1975 novel

The 10-episode limited series is set in Japan in the year 1600, at the dawn of a century-defining civil war. Producer Hiroyuki Sanada stars as “Lord Yoshii Toranaga” who is fighting for his life as his enemies on the Council of Regents unite against him. When a mysterious European ship is found marooned in a nearby fishing village, its English pilot, “John Blackthorne” (Cosmo Jarvis), comes bearing secrets that could help Toranaga tip the scales of power and devastate the formidable influence of Blackthorne’s own enemies — the Jesuit priests and Portuguese merchants. Toranaga’s and Blackthorne’s fates become inextricably tied to their translator, “Toda Mariko” (Anna Sawai), a mysterious Christian noblewoman and the last of a disgraced line. While serving her lord amidst this fraught political landscape, Mariko must reconcile her newfound companionship with Blackthorne, her commitment to the faith that saved her and her duty to her late father.

Along with Hiroyuki Sanada, Cosmo Jarvis and Anna Sawai, "Shogun" stars Tadanobu Asano, Hiroto Kanai, Takehiro Hira, Moeka Hoshi, Tokuma Nishioka, Shinnosuke Abe, Yuki Kura and Fumi Nikaido.

The limited series will drop on Hulu in the U.S., as well as Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ in all other territories in February of 2024.

Currently rated 100% at Rotten Tomatoes with 64 critic reviews counted. Audience Score at 95%.

Critics Consensus:  Visually sumptuous and enriched with cultural verisimilitude, Shōgun is an epic reimagining that outdoes the original.

I read the book in high school so I have been waiting for a modern retelling onscreen that would be able to do justice to this James Clavell classic.  I have also read (and seen documentaries) about the biographies of Tokugawa Ieyasu and the storied life of William Adams, one of the first white samurai.  The original 1980 television miniseries was highly regarded by critics and fans alike. 

Needless to say, my expectations for this FX series are high, like at Game of Thrones or Rome level high.  I'm glad to hear the critics universally love it and I can't wait to watch this in Dolby Atmos + Dolby Vision.  Too bad James Clavell isn't around to get to see this too.

The incredibly detailed production transports you to feudal Japan. It's interesting to find out that they filmed the series primarily in British Columbia, Canada and not in Japan.

^ Mas mura ata mag-shoot sa Canada (logistically and financially) and may tax breaks pa. No one would be able to notice that it isn't Japan anyway.

Outside of the main population centers (i.e. Vancouver) and tourist areas (i.e. Whistler), BC is basically untouched / rough country.  I can imagine it probably might be very similar to how the Japanese countryside looked in the 1600s. Izu, Japan (venue of the first episode) looks nowhere near what it looked like 400 years ago.

Plus, BC has a very large Asian population and it would not be difficult to find hundreds of extras that look Oriental.
