How Star Wars: Visions Animation Studios Find Different Elements To Explore

Star Wars: Visions executive producer James Waugh explains how studios from different countries bring something new to Star Wars. The Star Wars anthology series features a new animated short film every episode. The first season focused on anime, with a different Japanese studio creating each episode. Each episode of the second season will be created by a new studio from a different country, including Ireland, Chile, France, and South Korea.
In an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, Waugh discussed what makes Star Wars: Visions unique. He explained how the storytelling in the first season inspired them to expand to other studios in different countries. Waugh also broke down how different creators bring different perspectives to Star Wars. Check out Waugh's full quote below:
We had always noticed with the first volume, just how much we can tell. The fact that these creators were from Japan informed their storytelling. So specifically that we saw that ability translating across tons of different cultures. With each of these cultures, they each look at Star Wars in different ways. The phenomenon of Star Wars means something differently to each one of these cultures. The elements that resonated within a culture are different and it's fun to see that.
Each time that we engaged with a studio we got to see new takes of Star Wars that we never expected before. They are deeply rooted and in the values of Star Wars, but they're also each in their own way expanding the potential of what Star Wars can be.
How Creators From Outside The US Bring A New Perspective To Star Wars The first season of Star Wars: Visions brought the world of Star Wars into the anime genre, tapping into different styles with every episode, including a Kurosawa-inspired Sith. Season 1 introduced new characters and concepts to Star Wars, including a Sith hunter who was himself a Sith and a Droid who dreams of being a Jedi. Many of these stories are influenced by anime tropes and Japanese culture, bringing a new perspective to the world of Star Wars.
