Star Wars: Visions Producers on Bringing Anime to a Galaxy Far, Far Away

James Waugh (Executive Producer) and Kanako Shirasaki (Producer) talk to IGN about Star Wars: Visions, a collection of animated short films that stream exclusively on Disney+. 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.
