At long last, we finally get to see what an official Star Wars anime looks like with this first look at Star Wars: Visions. And man, do they blow our minds. I mean, check it out for yourself.
Star Wars gave us this first look at Visions just a mere 2 days ago on July 3, 2021. This first look includes actual stills from each episode of this anime anthology series. The stills confirm the high production values for this show, which makes sense given the big name anime studios involved in this project. My inner anime fan is already sparkling with excitement for when this finally arrives on Disney+.
Speaking of which, this first look at Star Wars: Visions also gives us a release date. Apparently, we will finally get to see Star Wars‘ first official anime on Disney+ on September 22, 2021. Mind you, this will stream exclusively on Disney+ and nowhere else. So if you still have access to that Disney+ free trial and if you are a fan of both Star Wars and anime, this is the perfect time to use that free trial.
Star Wars: Visions ~ Details
This first look into Star Wars: Visions also confirms that each separate episode will be by a different anime studio. Basically, think of this show as Halo Legends, but for Star Wars. The list of anime studios and the episode each one is responsible for goes as follows:
Kamikaze Douga: “The Duel”
Geno Studio (Twin Engine): “Lop and Ochō”
Studio Colorido (Twin Engine): “Tatooine Rhapsody”
Trigger: “The Twins”
Trigger: “The Elder”
Kinema Citrus: “The Village Bride”
Science SARU: “Akakiri”
Science SARU: “T0-B1”
Production IG: “The Ninth Jedi”
As you can see, it looks like Studio Trigger (Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal) and Science SARU (Devilman Crybaby, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!) are getting a bit more screen time than the others. Given the quality work both studios do, I’m honestly not surprised. Although, Geno Studio managed to gain quite a bit of fans with their depiction of that alien bunny girl. I guess we’ll just have to see who does the best job when Star Wars: Visions finally comes out. And maybe, just maybe, let’s hope this leads to more Star Wars anime in the future.
We finally got our first look at Star Wars: Visions. As can be expected, this anime anthology series looks to be pretty much everything you had hoped for as both an anime fan and a Star Wars fan. Tune in to Disney+ on September 22, 2021 to find out what all the fuss is all about.
