In recent days, we have received a lot of news about what to expect for “Star Wars” in the future, as the annual Star Wars Celebration event is currently underway.
At the end of last year, the anthology series “Star Wars: Visions” premiered on Disney +, which consists of nine independent episodes or short films where various Japanese animation studies such as Trigger, Kamikaze Douga and Science Saru had to interpret the galaxy far, far away.
Now Disney has announced that there will be a second season of the series in the spring of 2023, which takes place outside Japan. This time, animation studios from Chile, Great Britain, France, South Africa, South Korea, India, Ireland and Spain will also make their mark on the galactic adventure.
During the first season, we got to explore parts of the galaxy we’ve never seen before, like a droid that becomes Jedi, an episode that takes inspiration from Akira Kurosawa’s samurai movies and much more exciting.
When it came down to it, Star Wars fan Fanny Degerfelt wrote “letting anime creators use the Star Wars universe is one of the most interesting ideas Disney has had in years! Disney has never been avant-garde, but in the last decade everything has felt so terribly safe… and not just when it comes to Star Wars Letting people with a different cultural background, in a different art form, get (decent) creative freedom is an excellent concept.
Other animated Star Wars projects underway are the second season of “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” and the anthology series “Tales of the Jedi”.
