Star Wars is one of the most popular franchises in science fiction cinema. For this reason, he drew attention when, at the end of last year, Disney announced Star Wars: Visions, animated production that would be carried out by several Japanese creators.
According to what was pointed out by the studio at the time, this new work seeks to capture the essence of the influence of anime, but that was all that was known in December.
Months later, we finally have a new preview. In the framework of the Anime Expo Lite 2021, Lucasfilm provided more details about this production, along with revealing some images through a short teaser.
In just over three minutes, the record shows several images and scenes from the different installments that will give life to this new bet of the franchise, highlighting the creators and the different aesthetic and narrative techniques that can be appreciated.
In accordance with the star wars site, the stories in this production are in different places in the timeline and will involve both new and familiar characters.
“We really wanted to give these creators ample creative space to explore the full imaginative potential of the Star Wars galaxy through the unique lens of anime,” said James Waugh, the executive producer on this project.
