Star Wars: Visions: teaser

Seven Japanese anime studios are behind the shorts in upcoming Disney+ series.

Disney+ has unveiled a first glimpse of its new anime anthology series, Star Wars: Visions, set to debut on September 22.

Seven Japanese anime studios are behind the short films in the series, employing their signature animation and storytelling styles to deliver their own visions of the “Star Wars” universe:

Kamikaze Douga – “The Duel”
Geno Studio (Twin Engine) – “Lop and Ochō”
Studio Colorido (Twin Engine) – “Tatooine Rhapsody”
Trigger – “The Twins” and “The Elder”
Kinema Citrus – “The Village Bride”
Science Saru – “Akakiri” and “T0-B1”
Production IG – “The Ninth Jedi”

“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,” a press release indicates. “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.”

Disney+ also gave fans a special look into the creation of the series.
