Star Wars: Visions Season 2 Goes Global With Stories From India, Spain, and Ireland

When Star Wars started expanding its universe, the first attempt was at creating an animated series expanding the history and arc of the Clone Wars. The 12 years long series was widely praised and led to other Star Wars ventures. However, for a franchise that was as complex, varied, vast, and interesting as Star Wars, it wouldn’t end with Clone Wars. The universe subsequently expanded into Mandalorian bounty hunters, Boba Fett, call back to the Anzellans, and Kenobi’s years in exile on Tatooine. Now Ahsoka and Andor, too, are in the mix. So it was only a matter of time before the visionary universe would get its own Star Wars: Visions series.

What is Star Wars: Visions?

The nine-episode anthology series Star Wars: Visions first came out in 2021. It was created by seven different studios all set in the birthplace of manga and anime, Japan. The studios and production companies were given the liberty to exercise their imagination as to what they each envisioned the Star Wars universe would be like. The final result was a series of nine short films, ranging from 13 to 22 minutes with characters and stories scattered across space and time.

All released on September 22, 2021, the nine-episode anthology series received widespread praise and fame. It was not only a step up from the mainstream storyline of the Star Wars universe, but also truly visionary in its storytelling. The episodes traversed alternate realities, Hutt family dramas involving a rock band, bandits, the Sith, Jedi Empires, and ancient lightsabers being treasured like family heirlooms.

A vision of the Future

The Star Wars: Visions series became so popular with every single one of its heartfelt episodes that fans were already vying for a second season. The success of the first series made it possible for that dream to come true. With the continuously expanding universe now even broader, the Star Wars: Visions season 2 can only be expected to broaden its scope and reach out beyond the visions of the Japanese creators.

The second season will now bring in more cultural outlook from every major storyteller industry on the planet. The anthology series’ season 2 will now be a global brainchild filled with emotions and diverse perspectives. Stories from India, Ireland, the UK, Spain, France, South Africa, Chile, Japan, and the US will make up the Visions volume 2.

The total number of episodes that will comprise the second volume is yet to be determined. But the release is set for early 2023 on Disney+.
