We really wanted to give these creators a wide creative berth to explore all the imaginative potential of the Star Wars galaxy through the unique lens of anime
Star Wars: Visions is confirmed to be non-canon to the current Star Wars universe. Executive Producer James Waugh says that this is to allow the studios to have greater creativity without being bound to current stories.
Considering the controversial reception of Star Wars episodes VIII and IX, maybe that’s not a bad thing. Perhaps it’ll be eventually incorporated in the Legends timeline with all the other non-canon Star Wars media. The shorts also seem to encompass many different genres. From what we can see from the trailer, there will action, comedy, romance, and even a rock opera.
It seems like a pretty good time to be a Star Wars fan all things considered. Apart from Visions, there’s also going to be new R2D2 Tamagotchi‘s and Star Wars: Republic Commando was recently ported to modern consoles.
