Earlier this year, at the Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim, Disney announced that a second volume of the animated series “Star Wars: Visions” is coming in Spring 2023!
The first season of “Star Wars: Visions” is upcoming anthology series from Lucasfilm that tells new Star Wars stories through the singular style and tradition of Japanese anime.
However, the second season will be a little different, as it will no longer just be made by Japanese studios. An international team will be making the series.
During a recent interview with the show’s executive producer James Waugh, some new details were revealed about the second season:
We announced that we’re gonna do of Visions volume two. The first anthology is anime because we all loved the style of it, but personally my intention for Visions was to always let it be a more broad palette, because there’s so much great animation work going on in the world. There’s so many interesting voices in all sorts of other mediums that are really focused on animation right now. And we really wanted it to be, in a way, a “sub-brand” that allowed for different creators to come celebrate Star Wars from their own unique cultural perspective. And so Visions volume two is sort of a global tour of some of the most interesting animation studios on a global level. We have studios from Africa, Chile, England, Ireland, France, India… and the guiding light there was that we wanted their storytelling to be a reflection of what Star Wars meant in their culture, but also a reflection of the myths and stories that could only come out of their cultural context. Spring next year is currently where we’re targeting and I think it’s an absolutely beautiful anthology.
The first season of “Star Wars: Visions” is available to watch now on Disney+
