Star Wars: Visions Is A Fresh Take On The Star Wars Universe
The new Star Wars animated series; Star Wars: Visions arrives on Disney+ and brings a new dimension to the Star Wars Universe.
Using Japanese Anime art styles and themes; the series offers short episodes that range in visual styles and themes.
George Lucas has mentioned that famed Japanese Director Akira Kurosawa and his films such as “The Hidden Fortress ” helped inspire “Star Wars”; so the idea of having seven Anime studios give their interpretations was very intriguing.
The stories are very engaging and combine many visual styles and themes associated with Japanese Filmmaking yet retain a distinctive Star Wars feel.
While some classic characters do appear; the series also introduces many new characters who have engaging histories and adventures that blend very well into the ongoing narrative.
Some episodes have a darker tone to them than others but all of them fit well into what fans expect from the series and offer a very refreshing new interpretation of the series.
In the end Star Wars: Visions is a fun and engaging new take on the Star Wars mythos that fans of all ages can enjoy.
Episodes appear on Disney+ starting on September 22nd.
