Trailer: “Star Wars: Visions”

Star Wars was born from adventure serials and Akira Kurosawa. It would be a stretch to claim this work is meant to reflect Kurosawa, but in a way, this is a return to some roots for the franchise as a collection of Japanese filmmakers from seven studios offer their stories to be told in that galaxy.

This is very much a production trailer. Where several personalities tell you how passionate the artists are while the art of the artists is shown but the artists can only vaguely speak to their inspiration. However, this is exciting, and creative, and fresh for a franchise frequently criticized for struggling to stretch into new landscapes for stories to tell. See for yourself:

The Star Wars: Visions short film series will be streaming on Disney+ starting September 22nd, 2021.
