Star Wars: Visions Season 2 will be a “global tour” of animation from India to Ireland, drawing on global myths and storytelling styles.
Whilst, Star Wars: Visions Season 1 consisted of standalone episodes in the house styles of seven prominent Japanese anime studios, executive producer James Waugh told Deadline that Season 2 will be more diverse yet.
“The first anthology is anime because we all loved the style of it, but personally my intention for Visions was to always let it be a more broad palette, because there’s so much great animation work going on in the world.
“There’s so many interesting voices in all sorts of other mediums that are really focused on animation right now. And we really wanted it to be, in a way, a ‘sub-brand’ that allowed for different creators to come celebrate Star Wars from their own unique cultural perspective.
“And so Visions volume two is sort of a global tour of some of the most interesting animation studios on a global level. We have studios from Africa, Chile, England, Ireland, France, India… and the guiding light there was that we wanted their storytelling to be a reflection of what Star Wars meant in their culture, but also a reflection of the myths and stories that could only come out of their cultural context.”James Waugh
Star Wars: Visions Season 2 is expected to drop on Dinsey+ in Spring 2023.
