Seven well-known anime studios will make the nine shorts.
Lucasfilm and Disney+ have released the first trailer for Star Wars: Visions, an anime anthology series. George Lucas launched the Star Wars franchise with the well-known 1977 picture. It immediately became one of the most popular franchise properties of all time after fast acquiring popularity. It continues to expand with novels, comics, magazines, short films, television programs, video games, toy lines, and more.
Disney is developing a lot of Star Wars material for a variety of platforms. Season 3 of The Mandalorian is in the works, and numerous spin-offs are in various stages of development on the same timeframe.
Star Wars: Visions is one of the many varied projects, which is situated in the Star Wars world but told through the eyes of Japanese anime animators. The series’ goal, as previously said, is to really appreciate different stories from across this great universe.
During a session at Anime Expo Lite 2021, the trailer and studio details were presented.
During the event, LucasFilm executive producer James Waugh noted, “We really wanted to give these creators a wide creative birth to explore the Star Wars galaxy.” “We wanted it to be as true to the companies and artists as possible. “This is their vision, riffing off all of the features of the Star Wars world that inspired them,” the concept went.
The nine short films that were unveiled at the event, as well as the studios that are working on them are:
Kamikaze Douga - The Duel Geno Studio (Twin Engine) - Lop and Ochō Studio Colorido (Twin Engine) - Tatooine Rhapsody Trigger - The Twins Trigger - The Elder Kinema Citrus - The Village Bridge Science Saru - Akakiri Science Saru - T0-B1 Production IG - The Ninth Jedi
“Each ‘Star Wars: Visions’ short displays a distinct Japanese sensibility, which in many ways coincides with the tone and spirit of Star Wars storytelling as a first official step into animation.
Japanese mythology and Akira Kurosawa’s films have been among the many influences on Star Wars stories since the beginning, and these new visions will further explore that cultural history through the unique animation style and perspective of each anime studio.”
When it premieres on September 22, the anthology will be available on Disney Plus.
