Plot Synopsis

STAR WARS: VISIONS is a collection of animated short films that celebrate STAR WARS through the lens of anime creators and storytellers from around the world.

The entire nine-episode first season dropped on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 on Disney+, with each short coming from one of seven different Japanese anime studios: Kamikaze Douga, Geno Studio (Twin Engine), Studio Colorido (Twin Engine), TRIGGER, Kinema Citrus, Science Saru, and Production I.G. As a first formal venture into anime, each short bears a unique Japanese sensibility, which in many ways aligns with the tone and spirit of STAR WARS storytelling. 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 further explore that cultural heritage through the unique animation style and perspective of each anime studio.

The second volume dropped on Thursday, May 4, 2023, as Disney+ released all nine new shorts from nine studios from around the globe. The first volume focused on Japanese anime, while Volume 2 highlights storytelling and styles from around the world. Episodes include: "Sith" (Studio: El Guiri; Director: Rodrigo Blaas); "Screecher's Reach" (Cartoon Saloon; Paul Young); "In the Stars" (Punkrobot; Gabriel Osorio); "I Am Your Mother" (Aardman; Magdalena Osinska); "Journey to the Dark Head" (Studio Mir; Hyeong Geun Park); "The Spy Dancer" (Studio La Cachette; Julien Chheng); "The Bandits of Golak" (88 Pictures; Ishan Shukla); "The Pit" (D'art Shtajio and Lucasfilm Ltd.; LeAndre Thomas); and "Aau's Song" (Triggerfish; Nadia Darries & Daniel Clarke).
