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.
All episodes of “Star Wars: Visions”will be released on Disney+ September 22, 2021. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Star Wars and Disney+!
