STAR WARS VISIONS 🤩

The most daring Star Wars project yet, STAR WARS VISIONS is a collection of nine Star Wars inspired shorts, all created by different anime studios. To me, VISIONS represents a breath of fresh air from the meticulously planned canon of the films and TV shows. It’s pure imagination and creativity, and it doesn’t need to follow every single rule that’s been laid out.

STAR WARS has, of course, directly and indirectly affected modern science fiction and space operas, but George Lucas was notably inspired by Japanese film, namely Akira Kurosawa’s THE HIDDEN FORTRESS. I may be reaching, but VISIONS sort of feels like an homage to those roots. All that being said, the stories are compelling, the animation is great, and it still feels very STAR WARS.

In order from best to worst, here is my ranking for STAR WARS VISIONS:

  1. THE DUEL 🤩
  2. THE ELDER 🤩
  3. AKAKIRI 🤩
  4. T0-B1 🤩
  5. THE NINTH JEDI 🤩
  6. LOP AND OCHŌ 😊
  7. THE VILLAGE BRIDE 😊
  8. THE TWINS 🤮
  9. TATOOOINE RHAPSODY 🤮
