[disc 2] Lucas, Coppola, and Kurosawa (19 min., 2005 ; interview with Lucas and Coppola) ; 41 min. documentary on Kagemusha (part of the Toho Masterworks series Akira Kurosawa: It is Wonderful to Create) ; Image: Kurosawa's Continuity (43 min. video that reconstructs Kagemusha through Kurosawa's paintings and sketches) ; Suntory commercials made on set ; storyboards.
