Star Wars used for revival of wayang kulit, Malaysia’s old shadow puppet art form

Al Jazeera America:

The 7th installment of Star Wars is released on Friday in the United States. In 38 years, the science fiction film has grown into a global multi-billion- dollar franchise. In some places it has even influenced aspects of pop culture.

Now in Malaysia, a group of people are using it to revive interest in an old art form.
