Shogun It has been one of the premieres that has received the most expectation at the beginning of 2024. Disney+ has gone all out in the adaptation of the book of the same name by James Clavell, offering us a great production with a cast to match and an exquisite setting and character characterization.

The plot is set in the year 1600. A Dutch ship appears stranded on the Japanese coast, and its crew is arrested by the authorities. In parallel, the daimyo Yoshii Toranaga (Hiroyuki Sanada) faces the Council of Regents, of which he himself is a member along with four other feudal lords who accuse him of try to concentrate all the power of the nation.

The two apparently unconnected situations come together when the noble Toranaga sees in John Blackthorne (Cosmo Jarvis) an Englishman aboard the European ship, an opportunity to defeat his adversaries. He proposes a strange alliance abroad and places him in the care of Todo Mariko (Anna Sawai), one of the most loyal people in his entourage.

The argument of Shogun It is inspired by the prolegomena of the battle of Sekigahara, considered decisive in the history of Japan. James Clavell was inspired by some of his protagonists to create his own story, which featured a television adaptation in 1980 starring Richard Chamberlain and Toshiro Mifune. This new version of Disney+ comes with a lot of ambition and more resources than its predecessor had more than four decades ago.
