26 Comments

Celebrity Mika Mifune, 26, who is the daughter of the late actor Toshiro Mifune, is launching a rock band together with her musician husband and young daughter. Mifune said the band, which will be called The TraBryu, will consist of herself, husband George Takahashi, 50, who is a vocalist for the rock band Toraburyu, and their daughter Rennon, 3. The band will sing the theme song “Birthday Party” for the kids animation film “Yes! Precure 5GoGo!” The CD single will be released on Nov 5.

Mifune said, “I wanted to make something memorable for my family. Ever since I heard that my father refused an offer to be in 'Star Wars,' I thought it is important to do something for children to enjoy."

ummmm, but it wasn't legal.... she was 15 when she got pregnant... if he didn't have money they probably would have taken him to court and jailed him.

butterfly1,

Either it was a very long pregnancy or someone's pulling random numbers out of his or her posterior. Whenever I see these two together they're doing something I don't usually see couples - especially famous couples - doing: laughing, smiling, enjoying each other's company. Some posters here are more worried about 'appearances' such as age differences than something called 'reality.'

I like the kid's name, too. I wonder if they'll have another kid and name him or her Macatoni

Wonder what her own father's take on all this would be? Probably turning in his grave.

Apparently they were dating when she was 14. Of course nobody says anything about it because he's kind of famous.

Named after John Rennon?

my bad, wrong dates. Yeap, I'm sure they were dating when she was 14. Wrong generation so I never bothered to ask any of her classmates how she was. But, do I care..... nope....

Nothing special, same like any other 'family business' anywhere!

Mifune would have been a great Obi-Wan, still Sir Guiness did a fine job

If they have a son they will call him Hallison.

That alone is fairly worrying. Sure, a big age gap between two partners is no big deal, but there's just something not right when one of them is THAT young. At least Celine Dion's husband had the decency to wait until she was a fully grown woman before making a move.

I always thought Lucas wanted Mifune to be Darth Vader.

Mifune as Luke Skywalker would have been even better. Or Princess Leia?

who said anything about what turkey neck lucas wanted?

Fact: Mika is the illegitimate child of Mifune Toshiro. Fact: Toshiro hardly ever saw her nor even cared she existed. Fact: Mika is cashing in by playing the loving daughter of a Japanese icon who barely acknowledged that he was her father. If she was that well off in the Mifune clan, she would not be married to a Japan Elvis sugar daddy twice her age.

It also probably helps that he is SGI. Gotta protect and push their own.
