Did You Know?
Though the film was released in 1984, the idea for Sayonara Jupiter was conceived by Toho producer Tomoyuki Tanaka during the Japanese run of the original Star Wars in the late 70's. He went to famous Japanese science fiction writer Sakyo Komatsu and asked him to create an story similar to Star Wars, but Komatsu chose to make a less action oriented story, more inspired by Arthur C. Clarke's novel 2010: Odyssey 2 and an article concerning Jupiter turning into a star. See more
