    Hyped for this too. There is a lot of interesting stuff in this trailer. There are some familiar characters. For instance, there is an inquisitor in front of stormtroopers (with a black red eyed protocol droid behind that looks suspiciously like triple-zero). There seem to be all types of different red lightsaber wielders. We see Jabba, Boba, Tusken Raiders, possibly Bossk. I would guess these are part of the Tatooine episode. The empire (or perhaps First Order) seems very present in the series with TIE’s and star destroyers. I hope we also will get some pre-TPM story lines, but the concept art with multiple red lightsabers being ignited might be hinting towards an old republic story.

    I’m not an anime person and generally find this style of animation very distracting. I’m 100% going to watch and I hope the story draws me in and I get to the point where I get used to the style.

    I’m a bit apprehensive but I’m certainly going to give it a fair shake!

    Has anybody heard how long each episode will be? Recently, Disney came out with a series called Short Circuit with experimental animations, and I was disappointed to see that each one was roughly 3 minutes long. Not nearly enough time to develop a story in my opinion. I’m hoping each one will be at least the length of a Pixar short (6-7 minutes) or even better, a full 22 minute television-style episode

    There is no runtime announced yet. Probably because all episodes will have a different runtime. But all the episodes will be released at the same time, so I guess they will be short :/

    Hmm, I didn't think about that before, how short the episodes might be. I hope most of them are at least in the 20+ minute range. Still pretty excited for this regardless. :)

    This will be a dream come true for me personally. To have an epicenter where my two favorite mediums collide will be incredible. It's a shame this style and formula can't be further worked upon within the realm of canon. Regardless, this gives us a new perspective on our favorite universe without much bounds. It's almost like a Star Wars version of "What If?".

    ^Indeed, I am mildly disappointed to see that this show will be non-canon. I get that it's to give the creators more freedom to do their own thing; but even for an anthology series, I guess I was still hoping that it'd be part of the official timeline.

    Ah well. I'm still looking forward to this regardless.

    I actually like that this isn’t canon - I think it will indeed have given the creators much more freedom for what seems like the most experimental Star Wars project Lucasfilm have done since Disney’s acquisition.

    Not that I wouldn’t love a full anime Star Wars series or film, but as is being proven from what we’re seeing so far of this, anime can cover a huge variety of art and rendering styles. Maybe this will be a one-off experiment and I’ll still feel happy that it happened - but maybe it could be the start of something larger later, and this is a taster to see what Star Wars fans in general will like the most, while letting fans who are not used to anime dip their metaphorical toes into its water at the same time.

    But also remember that just because things might not be considered canon, it doesn’t mean they can’t be introduced into canon later. If anything from these shorts proves to be especially successful, it could be adapted or drawn upon (if you’ll excuse the pun) for future canon projects too, in whatever format(s).

    If this is successful and gets a "season 2" (which I hope it does!) I'd like some "What If" scenarios thrown in.
    My "top 5" would be:
    1. Expand on the RotS game alt ending (Vader kills Obi-wan on Mustafar then Kills Sidious & declares himself Emperor)
    2. Luke joins Vader in ESB or joins Sidious in RotJ
    3. Adapt the original Ep 9 script
    4. A "Darth Rey" scenario. Either she joins Kylo in TLJ or embraces her "Palpatine" side and joins him.
    5. Adapting things from Legends, like Kotor or Tales of the Jedi, would be awesome.

    Better to disappoint people now who value addition to canon and endorsement of an official timeline ahead of quality and innovation than to put things out and draw the wrath of fans who assume that just about everything is canon when they discover that it's not, and has never been canon.

    New trailer for Visions looks awesome. These one off stories should be a lot of fun. The lightsaber combat in this looks like it'll really stand out.

    Yes the action scenes and most everything else looks sumptuous. I look forward to it.

    It also makes me pine all the more for another Tartakovsky SW show.

    This trailer looks absolutely breathtaking. Wow. The originality I'm seeing within a decades old universe. Japanese animation has always been very intriguing to me. To see the original ideas of the Japanese culture via star wars is something I've wanted to see for a very long time.

    Haven't had time yet. Hope to watch all of them in the next couple of days.

    First one is the B&W one, the one looks the coolest.

    Don't know if someone have seen all and if recommends some concrete order to watch.

    They are all separate stories, so it doesn’t really matter which order you watch them in. Go with the suggested order or just pick which ones you like the look of most.

    I love them all.
