May the Force be with you!
This morning, Lucasfilm released the trailer for its upcoming Disney+ original series, Star Wars: Visions. The anthology series, which debuts on Sept. 22, features nine new Star Wars stories, all told through the style and tradition of Japanese anime. The nine shorts will be titled “The Duel,” “Tatooine Rhapsody,” “The Twins,” “The Village Bride,” “The Ninth Jedi,” “T0-B1,” “The Elder,” “Lop & Ocho,” and “Akakiri.”
Lucasfilm partnered with seven leading anime studios to produce the show, which will be available with a Japanese voice cast and dubbed in English. In the action-packed, dubbed trailer below, fans will see many familiar elements of the Star Wars universe — from lightsabers and stormtroopers to a certain notorious bounty hunter — all in a fresh, exciting visual style.
Fans may recognize some of the voices in this trailer because the voice cast — also announced today — is stacked. The English dub cast features both new and returning Star Wars stars, including Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett, Lucy Liu as Bandit Leader, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jay, Neil Patrick Harris as Karre, Simu Liu as Zhima, David Harbour as Tajin, Henry Golding as Tsubaki, and George Takei as Senshuu.
