Disney plus’s main issue is there is too much stuff that looks like Disney, however, this new Star Wars show will hopefully be changing that!
Ever since Disney bought the rights to Star Wars back in 2012, there has been a constant stream of new content being made from the 1980’s franchise. Their latest installment, Star Wars Visions looks to be the next big thing to hit Disney+’s streaming service since The Mandalorian back in 2019.
The newest installment, Visions, is a set of 9 short films each made by separate production companies in Japan and will be available in Japanese with English subtitles, and English dubbed.
While you might want to go with the English dubb, it can be wonderful to listen to how it was envisioned by the director, and teach your children about different languages. One of the best ways to learn a new language is to watch and listen to your favourite shows in the language you want to learn!
The initial trailer itself is shown in Japanese with subtitles, so evidently it is how Disney wants to market it in its origional language.
All nine episodes will be dropped on Disney+ on the 22nd September.
The Executive producer and Lucasfilm Vice President, Franchise Content & Strategy James Waugh has said;
“Lucasfilm is partnering with seven of the most talented anime studios in Japan to bring their signature style and unique vision of the Star Wars galaxy to this inspired new series,”
“Their stories showcase the full spectrum of bold storytelling found across Japanese animation; each told with a freshness and voice that expands our understanding of what a Star Wars story can be, and celebrates a galaxy that has been such an inspiration to so many visionary storytellers.”
The series feature household names such as Neil Patrick Harris, Gordon Joseph Level, and Alison Brie to name a few.
