Message From Space(1978)

"Where Fantasies are Real & Reality is Fantastic." 

 In this Star Wars take-off, the peaceful planet of Jillucia has been nearly wiped out by the Gavanas, whose leader takes orders from his mother (played a comic actor in drag) rather than the Emperor. King Kaiba sends out eight Liabe holy seeds, each to be received by a chosen one to defend the Gavanas. Each recipient, ranging from hardened General Garuda to Gavana Prince Hans to young Terrans Meia, Kido, and Aaron all have different reactions to being chosen. 

Starring Vic Morrow, Sonny Chiba, Philip Casnoff, Peggy Lee Brennan, Etsuko Shihomi, Tetsuro Tamba, Hiroyuki Sanada, Mikio Narita, Makoto Sato, and Noboru Mitani.

Directed by Kinji Fukasaku.
