A new poster has been released for Star Wars: Visions, which showcases the central character in each of the anthology series' shorts.
The new poster was revealed on the official Star Wars website. In addition to showcasing the series' wide variety of art styles, the poster features many of the characters that will be added to the franchise's ever-expanding galaxy when the show makes its debut, including Juro, one of the titular Jedi from Production IG's The Ninth Jedi, and the unnamed, red lightsaber wielding ronin from Kamikaze Douga's The Duel. The poster also shows off the return of fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett, who will be once again be played by Temuera Morrison.
Each episode of Star Wars: Visions will tell a self-contained storyline created by one of Japan's top animation studios. The first episode will be the previously mentioned The Duel, which was produced by Jojo's Bizarre Adventure studio Kamikaze Douga. Lucasfilm loved Kamikaze Douga's samurai-infused take on the Star Wars galaxy so much that they asked the short's character designer to create entirely original designs for the show's first tie-in line of apparel.
The series will also feature two shorts from Studio TRIGGER, best known for the Promare anime movie, as well as series such as Kill La Kill and SSSS Gridman, as well as Science Saru, the studio behind the critically acclaimed The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl and the upcoming series The Heike Story. Golden Kamuy's Geno Studio will also produce a single episode, as will A Whisker Away's Studio Colorido. According to Lucasfilm, each studio was given total creative freedom to make whatever stories they wanted, without having to worry about each story's placement in the Star Wars timeline.
In addition to its all-star animation team, the series will feature a notable voice cast in both English and Japanese. The English version of the series features actors such as Simu Liu (Shang-Chi), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception), Allison Brie (Community), Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), Lucy Liu (Charlie's Angels), David Harbour (Stranger Things), Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), and more. The Japanese voice cast is equally stacked with anime veterans, including Masako Nozawa, who has provided the voice of Dragon Ball's Goku for over 30 years; Akio Otsuka, the Japanese voice of Metal Gear Solid's Snake; Jujutsu Kaisen's Junya Enoki; Macross Delta and Chihayafuru's Asami Seto, and more.
Star Wars: Visions will premiere on Disney+ on Sept. 22.
