Disney+ offered a first peek of STAR WARS: VISIONS at the Anime Expo Lite this week giving us a first look at new upcoming collection of animated short films. Each of the nine standalone episodes is being handled by a different anime studio, each with a different approach and artistic style.
The anime studios and episode titles were also released:
- 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 Bride
- Science Saru – Akakiri
- Science Saru – T0-B1
- Production IG – The Ninth Jedi
Each STAR WARS: VISIONS short bears a unique Japanese sensibility, which in many ways aligns with the tone and spirit of Star Wars storytelling. From the beginning, stories told in the Star Wars galaxy have counted Japanese mythology and the films of Akira Kurosawa among their many influences, and these new visions will further explore that cultural heritage through the unique animation style and perspective of each anime studio.
