What Is It?
The 2021 anime anthology show Star Wars: Visions (Season 1).
This is how Disney+ describes this anime show:
Seven Japanese anime studios bring their unique talent and perspective to “Star Wars: Visions”—a collection of animated short films that will stream exclusively on Disney+. The anime studios are Kamikaze Douga, Geno Studio (Twin Engine), Studio Colorido (Twin Engine), TRIGGER, Kinema Citrus, Science Saru, and Production I.G. Each studio will use their signature animation and storytelling styles to realize their own visions of the galaxy far, far away. As a first formal venture into anime, each “Star Wars: Visions” short bears a unique Japanese sensibility, which in many ways aligns with the tone and spirit of Star Wars storytelling. From the beginning, stories told in the Star Wars galaxy have counted Japanese mythology and the films of Akira Kurosawa among their many influences, and these new visions will further explore that cultural heritage through the unique animation style and perspective of each anime studio.
I thought that this anime show would be better than it turned out to be, my brother GC & I were disappointed in this show, it was not terrible, but it was a 3 out of 5 at best.
There were a few nice moments of animation, music, sound, and action; but most of the episodes were too short, some episodes had animation that was too kiddy, and some episodes were a bit pointless.
