    Ahead of Star Wars: Visions' debut on Disney+ tomorrow, the producers of the show have expressed an interest in doing another season of the anime series.

    In an interview with CNET, Lucasfilm producer Kanako Shinazaki and executive producer James Waugh spoke at length about the series, revealing that they'd love to do another season if there was sufficient demand for it.

    Shinazaki and Waugh also answered the question likely on the lips of most fans: is Star Wars: Visions canon? Shinazaki went first, confirming what many people suspected; it is not.

    Waugh also hopes that the tales told in this season might influence future Star Wars stories, but in the meantime he's waiting to see which stories prove most popular.

    Waugh expressed his excitement at being able to create an anime Star Wars project, as anime has been a big influence for the people at Lucasfilm for some time, and Disney+ finally let them do that.

    CNET also asked why they decided to release all nine Star Wars: Visions episodes on the same day, when previously Disney+ original series like The Mandalorian have released one episode a week. Waugh claimed that the length of each episode and the unique format of this series played a big role in the decision.

    Shinazaki and Waugh were also asked if they had a favorite episode, and the former struggled to pick one.

    Waugh sympathized with his colleague.

    When CNET mentioned The Elder, in which an ancient Sith warrior seeking challenging warriors confronts his own mortality, Waugh spoke a little about the episode.

    Shinazaki also spoke a little about the animation studios' skill at creating such memorable stories and characters in such short spaces of time.


    In a separate interview with Murphy's Multiverse, Waugh spoke a bit more about developing more non-canon stories like Visions in the future:

    While speaking to TheDirect, Waugh also spoke about the benefits of Disney+, and addressed concerns that we might be getting oversaturated with Star Wars content thanks to the streaming service. Essentially, he feels that Visions is so different from more traditional Star Wars content that there shouldn't be a problem.

    Star Wars: Visions debuts on Disney+ on Wednesday, August 22, 2021.
