    We are a little over a week away from the release of Star Wars: Visions, the first anime series set in a galaxy far, far away, that will introduce some unique (non-canon) takes on the world of Star Wars from the world's top anime creators. Today, StarWars.com released an article that introduces us to some of the new characters we'll meet in this series through the words of the show's executive producers. Let's meet the new characters!



    Kara, from The Ninth Jedi

    The Ninth Jedi is supposedly the ninth and last episode of the series, and is apparently the longest one (22 minutes). It was originally pitched as two different episodes, but the idea was eventually reworked into a long one. In the story, the Jedi Order is long gone, until a mysterious master named Juro appears, hoping to revive it. Kara appears to be somehow tied to this Jedi renaissance, even though she has never been trained in the ways of the Force. Executive producer Josh Rimes had this to say about it:



    In some ways, Kara is very similar to past heroes like Luke or Rey, and in others, she is very different. Rines said:



    As with any Star Wars project, this will be an adventure to remember:



    Karre, from The Twins

    [​IMG]



    Karre and Am are almost the reverse-Skywalker twins. They are very powerful dark force-users that were designed to rule the galaxy one day, and they start off their journey in their episode being already very powerful. Producer Kanako Shirasaki told StarWars.com:



    Rines added:



    In The Twins, Karre feels like Star Wars characters we already know, but he also brings something new to the table, as Rimes described it:



    Dan, from The Elder

    [​IMG]



    The episode The Elder is described as the classic master-Padawan training, with Dan learning the ways of the Force from his master Tajin. Rimes had this to say about them:



    He added:



    In some ways, this description is a bit reminiscent of the Yoda-Luke relationship in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.



    F, from The Village Bride

    [​IMG]



    This episode, by Kinema Citrus, finds a fallen Jedi known as F observing a small village's wedding rituals. She is not much of a talker. As Rimes puts it:



    This episode is particularly interesting for introducing various ways of interpreting the Force. Shirasaki said:



    Rines also reflected on the themes of the episode:



    Ronin, from The Duel

    [​IMG]



    The Duel is heavily inspired by Samurai films, which at the same time inspired George Lucas to create this galaxy forty-five years ago. The episode follows a Jedi known as Ronin, that looks and feels straight out of a Kurosawa movie. Indeed, Rimes commented on this:



    Shirasaki added:



    The Ronin will have his own solo adventure via the upcoming novel Ronin, by Emma Mieko Candon, out on October 12.



    For the full story head to StarWars.com, where there are many more quotes and descriptions of the characters. And make sure to come back next week when the series is released, on September 22. Its nine episodes are said to have a combined runtime of two and a half hours, ranging from 13 to 22 minutes per episode. Meanwhile, you can watch the trailer for the series right here.

    I'm really looking forward to this and picking up the Ronin novel as well.
