    The first look at Star Wars: Visions has been revealed, showcasing a brief glimpse at the various animation studios that will get to craft new tales from across various time periods in the galaxy far, far away.





    A recent panel, held today at Anime Expo, showcased content from the first-ever Star Wars anime series, Visions. The show will take an anthology format, telling potentially-canonical and non-canonical Star Wars stories from the perspectives of a variety of Japanese animators, much like previous anime anthologies based on American franchises like The AnimatrixBatman: Gotham Knight, and Halo Legends. Early on in the panel, a short video was displayed, showcasing the talent working on Visions and glimpses at their work:

    OMG, I liked how the Japanese anime studios adapted Blade Runner, Batman, several other American franchises, I really can't wait for this!

    At this point, I'm more interested in this than any other upcoming SW series.

    I really liked the special look and pretty much everything we saw. At least two art styles are right up to my alley.

    My speculation: It' probably short form, 5-12 minutes, which is why they are dropping all the episodes at once.

    We'll see, I am intrigued.

    My favourite shots and sketches from this preview. Really interesting premises and animations. Love all the styles and colors. Those stormtroopers at the end look so sick...
    September is almost here. Can't wait!

    Not really my style and so I can't say it's among my most anticipated new star wars content but it it does look and sound interesting enough and I will of course check out at least and episode or two to be fair about it
