FX's Shogun this February on Disney+

Disney+ has dropped an official trailer for FX's Shogun coming to Disney+.

Read the official synopsis:

"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."

I still have vivid memories of watching the Shogun miniseries, starring Richard Chamberlain, in 1980. Along with Star Wars, the live-action adaptation of James Clavell’s bestselling novel piqued an interest in samurai legend.

The premiere of the 10-episode limited series will include the first two episodes, followed by a new episode each week.

FX's Shogun will premiere worldwide exclusively on Disney+ on 27th February.
