    Star Wars fans have been given an early look at the villains of Star Wars: Visions ahead of its debut on Disney+ next week.





    After we were given a look at some of Vision's heroes, Justin Leach, co-executive producer on the show, has provided StarWars.com with information on a number of villains from the anime series to give us a taste of what to expect when it debuts. We have listed the villains below, but needless to say, spoilers follow.



    The Elder

    The Elder, seen in the trailers for Star Wars: Visions, is a 'mysterious warrior with ancient and sinister origins', according to to the website. Justin goes into more detail:



    We are told that The Elder will be going up against his greatest foe yet - time itself, facing his own mortality. Whether this means he will be searching for a secret to immortality, or quietly contemplating the end of his story, remains to be seen. The Elder was designed by Kamome Shirahama, who previously illustrated the concept art for the ARTFX Artist Series Kotobukiya statuettes of Rey and Kylo Ren. This time, Shirahama combined classic anime, Star Wars myth, and the ways of the samurai into a single design. According to Leach, this included the design of his lightsaber:



    The Elder will appear in the episode titled... The Elder.



    Am

    [​IMG]



    Am is the twin sister of Karre, from The Twins story. According to Leach, she acts as a mirror to Karre's life and what it could have been. Am and Karre's dynamic acts as a twisted spin on the classic Star Wars twins relationship. She is a master of the dark side who fights with a unique set of weaponized armor:



    Am's soon-to-be-iconic armor was designed by Shigeto Koyama, who blended Darth Vader's classic life supporting armor with classic anime details and the Trigger aesthetic. Her armor's appendages allow her to wield multiple sabers and whips at the same time:



    Am will appear in the episode titled The Twins.



    Masago

    [​IMG]



    Masago is a physically powerful and supremely confident dark side being who believes in her own destiny.



    Masago will appear in the episode titled Akakiri.



    Sith Bandit Leader

    [​IMG]



    The Sith Bandit Leader is the only villain not to be given a name so far, but she is an homage to traditional Japanese female samurai warriors called 'Onna-Musha' from Feudal Japan. According to Leach, she was inspired by a particular character from classic Japanese cinema:



    The hero Ronin will apparently meet the Sith Bandit Leader in a camp and be forced to take action and defend nearby villagers, in a story heavily inspired by Seven Samurai.



    Her design was deliberately illustrated with careful line work, fusing traditional Japanese culture together with Star Wars mythology. This was necessitated by the fact her episode is an entirely hand-drawn, black-and-white short with pops of color accents to make it stand out.



    The Sith Bandit Leader's lightsaber is a totally new design, which lends itself to a new fighting style that Leach compares to Darth Maul's in The Phantom Menace.



    The Sith Bandit Leader will appear in the episode titled The Duel.



    The Inquisitor

    [​IMG]



    The Inquisitor is the most recognizable villain we've seen so far in Star Wars: Visions, who is simply one of the many inquisitors we know to be roaming the galaxy hunting the last remaining Jedi after Order 66. This villain will face off against T0-B1, a droid pretending to be a Jedi.



    Apparently, this inquisitor is meant to be 'a powerful, menacing representation of the dark side of the Force, seeking to eliminate and snuff out all that remains of the light.'



    He was designed by Takafumi Hori (Stephen Universe, Kill La Kill, Samurai Shamploo), intended to evoke a classic black knight with a primal fighting style.



    Apparently, it is through his conflict with this inquisitor that T0-B1 will 'find the independence and strength he needs to grow.'



    The Inquisitor will appear in the episode titled T0-B1.



    Star Wars: Visions will debut on Disney+ next week, on September 22, 2021.

    The more info I get on this show the more I really really want to see it.

    plus it’s all released in one hit I’ll probably end up watching it all in one day.
