The first full trailer for official Star Wars anime anthology Star Wars Visions has been unleashed on the internet, giving us a closer look at what to expect when the series hits Disney+ on September 22.
Star Wars Visions is an anthology of nine original stories set in a galaxy far, far away. Each one comes from one of seven incredible animation studios in Japan, including Studio TRIGGER and Production I.G.
If you didn’t think you could be more excited, Lucasfilm also revealed the list of names for the English and Japanese casts. Lucy Liu, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Alison Brie, Neil Patrick Harris, Simu Liu, David Harbour and even more incredible actors round out the English cast.
Each short is a unique vision of Star Wars. Lucasfilm seemingly granted the creators and studios the freedom to make the galaxy their own, and the results are simply stunning. They’re also wildly different. In the trailer alone there’s something for all fans of anime, ranging from natural backgrounds like the ones Studio Ghibli is famous for, to the explosive pastel action of TRIGGER’s Promare.
The seven animated studios and their shorts are:
- 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 I.G. – “The Ninth Jedi”
