Here’s the official synopsis of the upcoming series to get you pumped up:
“Seven Japanese anime studios bring their unique talent and perspective to Star Wars: Visions, a collection of animated Original Short Films. As a first formal venture into anime, 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.”
A lot of famous Hollywood actors have lent their voices for the series. Huge celebrities such as Lucy Liu, Neil Patrick Harris, Henry Golding, and David Harbour are part of the project’s voice cast.
Needless to say, the Star Wars fandom will get to experience the force like never before in Star Wars: Visions. If the original projects currently streaming on Disney Plus are any indication of the quality of this series, then fans will surely be in for a spectacular ride. The force will surely be strong in this one.
