Lucasfilm has released the first trailer for its latest show, Star Wars: Visions.

Premiering exclusively on Disney+, Star Wars: Visions is an upcoming anthology series that will tell new Star Wars stories through the lens of various Japanese anime creators. There will be nine animated shorts in total, each of which can be viewed with either the original Japanese voice cast or an English dub.

While anime fans typically lean toward the original Japanese language tracks, Star Wars: Visions does benefit from a notable English voice cast. It includes Temuera Morrison, Jango Fett and Boba Fett’s original actor, as well as other recognizable talents such as Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Mortal Kombat), Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels), and Neil Patrick Harris (Starship Troopers).

“Lucasfilm is partnering with seven of the most talented anime studios in Japan to bring their signature style and unique vision of the Star Wars galaxy to this inspired new series,” says James Waugh, executive producer and Lucasfilm Vice President, Franchise Content & Strategy.

“Their stories showcase the full spectrum of bold storytelling found across Japanese animation; each told with a freshness and voice that expands our understanding of what a Star Wars story can be, and celebrates a galaxy that has been such an inspiration to so many visionary storytellers.”

Star Wars: Visions will begin streaming exclusively on Disney+ beginning on September 22, 2021.

The studios creating the nine shorts include Kamikaze Douga – “The Duel”; Geno Studio (Twin Engine) – “Lop and Ochō”; Studio Colorido (Twin Engine) – “Tatooine Rhapsody”; TRIGGER – “The Twins” and “The Elder”; Kinema Citrus – “The Village Bride”; Science Saru – “Akakiri” and “T0-B1”; and Production I.G. – “The Ninth Jedi.”

  1. I’m rather underwhelmed by that trailer. I admit I’ll watch it and give it a fair shake, but I’m not hopeful.
  2. So far I haven’t been dissapointed by anything that disney has released so far Marvel/SW wise.

    Lets see how this goes…

    ****ing seriously? If nothing else, Episodes VII, VIII and IX were absolute trash. They aren’t just bad Star Wars, they are bad movies. The Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker literally fall into "objectively" bad territory with lore breaking issues, plots that make no sense, bad fight scenes, stupid characters, **** cinematography and poor treatment / inconsistent writing and characterization of legacy characters. Besides the special effects themselves they are absolute trash.

    I genuinely liked Rogue One. I thought Solo was better than people give it credit for but it’s still mediocre. The Mandalorian is enjoyable, but I think it’s not nearly as good as people say it is. Mainly, it’s that the bar has been set so low that anything

    On the Marvel side, most of the movies have been enjoyable for me. I do think that the quality is dropping and that their best days are likely behind them. Captain Marvel was a soggy **** sandwich. I understand Black Widow isn’t good, though I can’t verify that for myself as I haven’t seen it. On the TV side Marvel has been an almost totally unmitigated disaster. The Gift was awful, The Runaways is awful, Cloak and Dagger got boring. The Netflix stuff was generally badly paced and didn’t really fit the MCU all that well. Agents of Shield had a slow start but got better over time. I’ll give them that one. Legion has been solid, but some of these things aren’t MCU, they are from the Fox/X-Men universe.

    I’ve seen basically every comic book show and movie out there. I’m an avid Star Wars fan and I’ve got to say we have gotten more bad than good out of Disney lately.

    I meant new shows on disney+

  5. Oh….

    On that front, I’ve liked Mandalorian and Wanda Vision. I haven’t seen Loki.

    IMO, Mandalorian is #1. Then Falcon and WinterSoldier, Wandavision and Loki. I also liked the bad batch and so far What If seems ok.

    BTW I agree with pretty much everything you said, except Solo was trash, no wonder its the least grossing SW film and single handedly killed the StarWars Story franchise.

  7. I would summerize Disney SW like this:
    TFA was a bit looking forward to it and was very disappointed.
    Rogue One fell asleep, tried again, fell asleep again? Maybe I finished… Maybe.
    The Last Jedi, I saw mostly drunk, laughed a lot, tought it had a lot of comedy in it (apparently it doesn’t) . Not gonna revisit it since I have good memories.
    Solo, fell asleep (I think my wife too) .
    No we don’t normally fall asleep watching movies, just very very terrible ones.
    The Rise of Skywalker if whatever is called haven’t watched, don’t think I will.
    As far as this series go, started the one of defective clones, didn’t take for me for now. This stuff I may try, maybe.
  8. The Disney + shows have certainly been better than the latest Star Wars movies IMO. As far as Marvel goes the movies have been great (haven’t seen Black Widow), and their Disney + shows have been pretty good for the most part. What If? started out fairly well so hopefully that keeps up.
  9. BTW I agree with pretty much everything you said, except Solo was trash, no wonder its the least grossing SW film and single handedly killed the StarWars Story franchise.

    Solo grossed lower because people actively boycotted the thing over the Last Jedi. It was also a film that no one was all that interested in seeing. It did kill all the spin offs, as it told Lucasfilm & Disney it had no idea what it was doing.

  10. I enjoyed Solo, there were some bits with technical things being done half hazard that made me go… wow ok.. moving on. But overall I thought they did a good job. Enjoyed the characters and the story.

    I’m a rare bird though. I enjoyed all of the star wars movies… well other than Jar Jar… even the latest ones were fun for me because I could go in not looking for the ‘OHMAGAWD GIRLS REALLY?’ line of things and just enjoy the movie for the movie.

    As far as marvel.. yea I enjoyed most of the MCU, I haven’t seen ant man and wasp. Ant man just… I dunno. I just didn’t connect. Maybe because I read the Ultimate Avengers line of comics/Graphic Novels first and he’s an self obsessed abuser in that one. Glad they didn’t go down that line of thought though.

  11. I think I’m more in line with Grimalkin. The movies were – ok. I enjoyed them. They weren’t legendary though, and banked on the name recognition and nostalgia more than anything. But I liked 7-8-9 better than 1-2-3, but that doesn’t mean they came close to 4-5-6.

    But for just sci-fi entertainment they were your average, forgettable pulp. Most people who are angry are so because it didn’t live up to the Star Wars legacy, and I won’t argue with them, I just am not a big enough fan to get upset about it.

    My wife, on the other hand, is like Dan and almost breaks out in tears talking about it.

    I’m tired and bored of over-the-top super hero films now though. The Watchman has probably been my favorite to date.

  12. I enjoyed Solo, there were some bits with technical things being done half hazard that made me go… wow ok.. moving on. But overall I thought they did a good job. Enjoyed the characters and the story.

    I didn’t see solo, because of the Last Jedi, haven’t seen Rise of SkyPalpatine either.

    This is the official false narrative. Most people liked Rogue One, I think that is the best Disney era SW content they had put out. That alone should tell you that it’s not about "OHMAGAWD GIRLS" :rolleyes: Force Awakens, was OK at best with some flaws. Last Jedi was an absolute dumpster fire, as a movie.

  13. As for this show, it seems like peak stupidity for lucasfilm. A star wars anime wished for by nobody. They just think that because anime is popular putting an anime wrap on their crap will instantly make it a success. Not. Good content sells, regardless of the packaging.

    I think you hit the nail on the head. Anime is absolutely killing American comic sales. Series like Demon Slayer and some anime films are doing very well in the United States right now. Marvel comics and DC are an absolute **** show and sales are in the toilet. When you look at the stories they are doing, the terrible art styles, bad writing and political agenda pushing it’s easy to see why.

    Naturally, Disney has the wrong idea about why anime is popular. It’s because it lacks the "wokeness" of American comics and TV shows. However, I do not feel that progressive messaging is really the reason why we are in such a bad place right now. Hollywood has always been left leaning. But the real problem is now Hollywood doesn’t understand subtlety. There is no craft in what they are doing. If something doesn’t cause controversy, it’s not good enough. It’s really the diversity hiring and company mandates to include more messaging that are the root of this. Veteran creators won’t play ball or are incapable of thinking the way executives want them to and hire these younger people. Even if they have some innate talent for writing or what have you, a lot of them are young an inexperienced.

    Creative writing in any form is something that requires practice, criticism and a lot of time to get right. Even when someone is young and talented, they’ll do better as they hone their craft. When you research the writers on a lot of these shows and franchises that are crashing and burning, you’ll find that the writing staff has virtually no experience. They’ll have no experience writing comics, comic book films, fictional TV shows, science fiction or anything of the sort. Some of them have only a couple of writing credits before getting their jobs. Companies seem to think that they need younger creators to produce content that younger people will like. The idea here is they can court these future customers early and keep them for a long time.

    Unfortunately, the demographic with the largest amount of disposable income aren’t younger audiences. They aren’t the biggest consumers of these shows and merchandise. More than that, I think it’s a mistake to think that young writers are required to relate to young people. Telling a good story with likable characters often transcends social boundaries. Take a show like Star Trek that used to appeal to people in every demographic you can imagine. Now, they’ve alienated their core fanbase and the companies that used to produce merchandise want nothing to do with Abrams / Kurtzman Trek.

    The real problem here compared to what we see in previous decades is the Internet. Information proliferates quicker than people can adapt to it in terms of entertainment production which now takes longer than ever. More specifically, its a problem of the vocal minority stealing the spotlight and making companies think those are their customers when they are in fact, not their core customers or they are the type of people who will never be happy no matter what you present them. This is why I think companies are out of touch with reality and what people want.

    Most people just turn off a show they don’t like. They might complain to family and friends but most people will simply ignore it and not make much of a fuss about it. However, your blue checkmark crowd will go on an on at length making Youtube videos, screaming about XYZ or endlessly posting on forums about how wrong they think something is. In other words, the core customers aren’t screaming as loud as the vocal minority that can’t be pleased no matter what. Companies don’t know who to listen to so they tend to choose the ones who scream the loudest thinking that’s likely the right choice. They can’t understand that when it comes to the internet, it’s often the loudest voices that need to be ignored.

  15. Solo grossed lower because people actively boycotted the thing over the Last Jedi. It was also a film that no one was all that interested in seeing. It did kill all the spin offs, as it told Lucasfilm & Disney it had no idea what it was doing.

    I see the boycott argument frequently from people who for some reason liked Solo. It bombed because its a bad movie, simple as that (might have been a decent TV episode, but that’s another issue). BTW why was it the only "boycotted" movie/series in the whole SW franchise? Heck not even RoSW was boycotted.

  16. Disney must pay me handsomely to sit through any of that trash.

    Yeah, You could not pay me to watch any Anime, let alone to see the Star Wars franchise raped in this manner.

    I watched Akira once in the 90’s it was the worst turd I’ve ever seen on screen.

    Then I was forced to sit through my smelly geek roommates stupid fascination with dragonballs in college, which drove me up a wall.

    Seriously. **** all anime. **** it long and **** it hard. You won’t ever find me watching any of that garbage, or playing any game that uses an anime art style.

Heck not even RoSW was boycotted.

    Like all of these situations, it wasn’t any one thing that caused the issue. However, if it was just a bad movie then it would have had a strong opening followed by a super sharp decline in the subsequent week or so. The film opened a good 30 million below expectations and 50 million under Rogue One which gives credence to the boycott argument. Beyond that, it was a movie based on a premise no one really asked for. Movies tend to make 50% of their revenue in roughly 21 days at that time. It tapers off after that but picks up the rest of the revenue over the next several weeks of release.

    When a movie has a weak opening and continues to falter, its because people aren’t going to see it AND people that did weren’t happy with what they saw. Personally, I think the movie gets far more **** than it deserves. It’s a decent heist movie and does a fair bit of justice to Han Solo’s story until the last few minutes of the story where he’s a hero at heart and where he needs saving by a 110lbs. "strong woman".

    That aside, the movie was widely panned as both a backlash for the Last Jedi and rumors that Lando was "pansexual". There were also a lot of people who didn’t bother because they couldn’t see anyone but Harrison Ford in the role he made so iconic. I’m not saying the boycotts were the only reason the movie did badly. Far from it. However, I think it was a strong contributing factor. The opening weekend alone flat shows us that fewer people went to see it than went to see Rogue One.

    The Rise of Skywalker wasn’t as hated as the Last Jedi. But, all of them after Episode VII did worse than the previous film. None of them in the Palpatine trilogy did badly financially, but were often divisive among fans and that’s being overly simplistic and kind.

    Given that the anime stories are all new stories, calling it "rape" is a bit much. Many franchises have anime installments that vary in quality but anime or animation as a whole is fine.

    That said, I’m not a fan of most anime either. Akira is probably the most overrated anime film of all time. Dragon Ball-Z is something I never understood anymore than I understood Pokemon. There are some good ones out there though. I rather like the art style of some specific anime shows or films, but what often gets me are the tropes which plague the medium. I could go on an on in a thread about that alone. Sadly, I wouldn’t have time to type that up anytime soon.

    The tropes and "sameness’ of a lot of it keeps me critical of the vast majority of anime. But again, I wouldn’t blanketly say that all anime is garbage or trash. It’s a lot better than the animated **** coming out of America. Sure, South Park and some other shows may be funny or whatever but their artwork sucks. Other animation is infected by wokeness same as the comic book industry, which is why manga and anime are killing them in sales.

  18. If you dislike Anime I understand. I do NOT get some of the modern anime out there at all.

    I DO like Cowboy Beebop… and wolfs rain. Interesting stories with interesting characters… there are others… bot those are good.

    There are probably less than a dozen anime shows or films I like. I’m just not a big consumer of it. I’ve tried watching quite a lot of it but dislike the vast majority for one reason or another.

    Star Wars was raped by the force awakens, then killed by the last jedi, then the corpse raped again by rise of. There is literally nothing they can do with it that would make me care again.

    Most of my HS mates were also dragonball fans, I was dumbfounded how can anyone like that. That said, there are good anime movies, just not that many.

    SOLO is the only Starwars film I haven’t watched at the movies, the trailer didn’t make me care about it and actually I waited months untill one day I finally "streamed" it and my fears were spot on. The only saving grace was Donald Glover as Lando (and Chewie of course). The rest of the cast, mediocre at best. Lousy plot, lousy hero, lousy villain, lousy love interest. terrible ending, pointless cameo.

    BTW this is the "FIXED" version. I don’t want to know how bad was the original script.

    BTW this is the "FIXED" version. I don’t want to know how bad was the original script.

    I’ve never watched a single Star Wars film in the theaters. All of the newer ones I watched on my home theater system though. I haven’t been to a movie theater in over a decade.

    I’ve also never seen any of the animated series, or read any of the comics or anything of that sort.

    Films I have seen:
    – All originals
    – All Prequels
    – All sequels
    – Rogue One

    I’ve also watched the Mandalorian.

    I’ll say this:

    – I grew up on the original three films. Absolutely loved them.

    – I absolutely hated the prequels. Like, to th epoint I wish they had never been made. They ruined Star Wars for me. I watched Episode 1, and hated it. I wanted to strangle that little Anakin kid actor. I hated it so much that I completely lost interest in Star Wars. It wasn’t until years after its release I watched Episode 2. The Anakin/Padme dynamic made me want to puke. This cemented my feeling that "I hate Star Wars now". So much that I didn’t watch Episode 3 until like 2015 or so. It wasnt as bad as I recall the rest being, but I still disliked it.

    IMHO, the only good thing about the prequels was Ewan MacGregor. He acted the **** out of his role, but he alone could not save the trainwreck.

    The first of the newer films I saw was Rogue One. I kind of liked the throwback touches to the original three films, but in the grand scheme of things I don’ think it was terribly memorable. In fact I can’t remember most of the plot right now.

    Then I sighed and decided maybe I should watch the sequels. The Force Awakens was OK. Again, I liked the throwback touches and overall feel of the original three films. It gave me a sense of nostalgia. It was an enjoyable film, but again, nowhere near as memorable as the original three.

    Which brings me to the Last Jedi and the Rise of Skywalker. Don’t get me wrong. I wasn’t nearly as offended as some were by those films. I didn’t read any political agendas into the scripts or anything like others did. I just took them at face value, and to me that face value was just a bit boring. There was nothing to evoke what I loved about Star Wars in the 80’s.

    I will say this though. The Mandalorian TV series was awesome. I loved it. Loved the setting, loved the writing, loved the acting. I wish they could have executed the sequel films this well.

    So, the TLDR version is:

    – Original Series – Some of my favorite films of all time
    – Prequels – Some of my most hated films of all time
    – Sequels – Meh, a little fun here or there, but mostly forgettable
    – Rogue one – Again, some fun, but mostly forgettable
    – Mandalorian – A really pleasant surprise. Great little series.

    I’m not even sure if I am going to bother with the Solo film.

  23. – Original Series – Some of my favorite films of all time

    – Rogue one – Again, some fun, but mostly forgettable
    – Mandalorian – A really pleasant surprise. Great little series.

    I’m not even sure if I am going to bother with the Solo film.

    This is going deep into off topic territory, but I have wildly different views on the movies.

    The first one I saw was the Empire Strikes Back (you know iron curtain, western movies only got here in bootleg copies and we got them out of order). I really liked it.
    Then I saw return of the Jedi, and absolutely loved that one, must have watched the VHS copy 200 times.
    I didn’t see New Hope until the mid nineties, and I thought it was kind of meh.

    The only SW movie I saw in the theater was Phantom Menace. I didn’t hate it, I thought it was OK. Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith however were so forgettable that I Actually forgot what they were about.

    Force Awakens, I thought was very meh, I didn’t hate it, but it was a re-hashing of New Hope and it already had that Mary Sue moment at the end that bothered me to no end. Pun intended.

    Then I saw Rogue One and loved it, it is probably my third favorite SW movie only after Return of the Jedi and Empire strikes back.

    Then I saw the Last Jedi and the universe was broken beyond repair. Awful piece of utter trash. I didn’t even watch Solo or the third sequel movie after that. I might eventually get around to Solo, but not the third film, SW as a series is dead to me now.

    I did watch the Mandalorian, and it was OK, but I Think it is wildly overrated. It is only good in the context of the Last Jedi, but anything that is not a steaming pile of feces would be good compared to that.

    Episode I: OK
    Episode II: Forgettable
    Episode III: Forgettable
    Episode IV: Meh
    Episode V: Great
    Episode VI: Great
    Episode VII: Meh
    Episode VIII: TRASH
    Episode IX: Didn’t watch it

    Rogue One: Surprisingly Good
    Solo: Didn’t watch it

    Mandalorian: OK, highly overrated.

  24. An entire galaxy of NOPE. Who wanted this?

    I honestly don’t have a problem with it conceptually. These are unrelated to anything we’ve seen before and I have nothing against animation. But your right. No one asked for this.

  25. Rogue One was really good, IMO.

    I’m not a fan of the way the two leads give up at the end of the film, or the fact that everyone dies in it. Aside from that, I really enjoyed the movie. It’s easily the best one Disney has produced so far. In fact, I don’t think there is even a contest. In my opinion, Rogue One is the best Star Wars film since Return of the Jedi. Revenge of the Sith would almost be better if it weren’t for being so CG heavy and the last 10 or 15 minutes being complete ****.

    For me, as someone who has been in and has an MOS that would align with this kind of thing…….that is how it would have ended 99% of times. I hated that we lost great characters but appreciated that the depiction on how it would end is correct. Those are largely suicide missions.

  27. I’m not a fan of the way the two leads give up at the end of the film, or the fact that everyone dies in it. Aside from that, I really enjoyed the movie.

    Agreed, those were my primary complaints about Rogue one. Well that and the resurrected by cgi characters (Tarkin, Leia).

    I liked Solo ok, but more as a sci-fi train robbery kind of movie than a SW one. Chewbacca cracked me up in that one. I thought the inclusion of Maul at the end was dumb tho.

  28. If you dislike Anime I understand. I do NOT get some of the modern anime out there at all.

    I DO like Cowboy Beebop… and wolfs rain. Interesting stories with interesting characters… there are others… bot those are good.

    I’d watch Bebop again for the music alone. But thankfully I can just listen to the music without having to sit through the stories again. They were good, don’t get me wrong. I just don’t have the patience for these things anymore.
