Star Wars: Visions Volume 1 consisted of several shorts that were created by Japanese animation studios. This time around the volume branches out, bringing in studios from all around the world. The best thing about this anthology remains the same as that of the previous one, it allows fans to branch out over the world that is Star Wars.

We are treated with new short stories, the longest of which is eighteen minutes. While these do not bring any new lore or major reveals, that is okay, because what they do do is bring a smile to our faces. These stories explore the world we know of Star Wars. Some are heartbreaking, some are action packed, all are at least fun. Of course, some are better than others, but there is not one that is bad, and that is something to celebrate.

Each short offers a completely different visual style — all of which are absolutely stunning. It is impossible not to keep your eyes glued to the screen throughout the entire short, even if it isn’t the story that hooks you. On top of that, the voice acting is phenomenal. These stories introduce Star Wars fans to new characters that they will love, hate, and be eager to learn more about.
