After the last season of “Clone Wars”, after “The Mandalorian”, and after “The Bad Batch”, “Star Wars: Visions”, the next series from the “Star Wars” universe, is revealed in a strip- explosive announcement.
What is that Star Wars: Visions ?
Universe Star wars is currently expanding. Driven by the drive of Disney +, many series are in development to be released on the platform. And while waiting for the second season of The Mandalorian, or the series Obi-wan kenobi, LucasFilm reserves us a little nugget of animation: Star Wars: Visions. It is therefore an animated anthology series, which breaks with the standards of the universe of George Lucas. The show will tell stories independent of each other, while being part of a Japanese animation style.
Produced by James Waugh, this first season will be composed of nine episodes, which will be offered only in English and Japanese (no French translation), with French subtitles. The titles of the nine episodes have already been shared and will therefore be titled: The Duel, Tatooine Rhapsody, The Twins, The Village Bride, The Ninth Jedi, T0-B1, The Elder, Lop & Ocho and Akakiri.
A mind-blowing animation
Scheduled for September 22 on Disney +, series Star Wars: Visions is revealed in a first dantesque trailer. These first images set the tone and aesthetic style of the series. The latter will offer a powerful tribute to Japanese animated productions. A style that lends itself perfectly to the world of lightsabers. Fans are therefore entitled to demand stunning and creative fights.
On the vocal casting side, the series brings together, in bulk, actors like Lucy Liu, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Temuera Morrison (reprising her role as Boba Fett), Neil Patrick Harris, Alison Brie or even David Harbor. Just that. As for James Waugh, the producer looks confident about his project’s influence:
Lucasfilm has partnered with seven of Japan’s top animation studios that use their own styles of animation and storytelling to reinterpret the Star Wars universe. These stories pay homage to a universe that has inspired a large number of visionary storytellers. And show the full extent of the narrative palette of Japanese animation. Each one is told with a lot of originality and from a point of view which enriches our conception of what can be a Star Wars story.
The appointment is therefore set. We meet on September 22 to talk about Star Wars: Visions.
