Star Wars: Visions (a series of 10 animated short films) - a general discussion thread


“Presenting all-new, creative takes on the galaxy far, far away, Star Wars: Visions will be a series of animated short films celebrating Star Wars through the lens of the world’s best anime creators. The anthology collection will bring 10 fantastic visions from several of the leading Japanese anime studios, offering a fresh and diverse cultural perspective to Star Wars.”

I am really hoping they push the boundaries for this, some high quality and sweeping animation, and differing styles to what we have seen before in the animated Star Wars series we’ve seen so far.

Maybe something along the lines of the quality fan videos like Daz Tibbles animation, the TIE Fighter - short film, Malec’s The Mandalorian as anime, or even better 😃


This sounds very much like the Animatrix. Could be really interesting if they don’t give too many restrictions and allow the animators to get a little weird and crazy. I obviously don’t expect them to go as far as the Animatrix did (I’m assuming this is mostly marketed for kids?), but it’s still a great opportunity for SW to get a little experimental.
