The developers of Disney Plus’ ‘Star Wars: Visions’ have published the first trailer for the platform’s highly anticipated anime anthology series, Star Wars: Visions, which will premiere on September 22.
During the Anime Expo Lite event on Saturday, Disney Plus confirmed the seven Japanese animation studios behind the series’ short films: Kamikaze Douga, Geno Studio, Studio Colorido, Trigger, Kinema Citrus, Science Saru, and Production IG.
Each studio, according to sources, would use their own animation and storytelling styles to produce their own takes on the Star Wars universe.
The identities of all nine episodes, as well as the studios that produced them, were also revealed:
- Kamikaze Douga – `The Duel`
- Geno Studio (Twin Engine) – `Lop and Ocho`
- 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,”
The statement went on to say, “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.”
In addition to revealing the identities of each studio and episode, Disney Plus gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at the production.
