The world of anime is finally coming to the galaxy far, far away.

With the looming arrival of Star Wars: Visions, fans are amping up for a galaxy full of excitement. The anime series has been described as an “original series of animated short films” from a variety of creators that celebrate the “cultural heritage” of the series’ genre.

Each episode of Visions will introduce new characters and tales while also making references to the greater Star Wars universe. However, it was confirmed by director Kenji Kamiyama of Production I.G that Visions will explore the events following The Rise of Skywalker.

Today, Lucasfilm released a stunning new trailer that answers the question of whether the “galaxy settled into peace” after the defeat of Emperor Palpatine and all the Sith.

The brand-new teaser provides a sneak peek at the various galaxy-based storylines from seven innovative Japanese animation studios.

Additionally, Disney has officially unveiled the star-studded English dub voice cast for the Star Wars: Visions anime anthology series, which will premiere on September 22, 2021. Returning cast members include Temuera Morrison, who plays Boba Fett, and newcomers David Harbour, Neil Patrick Harris, and Simu Liu.

Lucasfilm is going all-in for Visions, a rather unexpected move as some fans were unsure of the show’s potential since the series’ Executive producer James Waugh revealed in July that Star Wars: Visions storytelling didn’t have to fit in the timeline,” indicating that it would most likely not be recognized as canon. However, it seems that Disney may have now offset this disappointment with a star-studded English voice cast that is sure to give fans one heck of an emotional ride.

Star Wars: Visions premieres on September 22, 2021, exclusively on Disney+.
