Star Wars: Visions Volume 2 coming to Disney+ in May

Disney and Lucasfilm have announced that Star Wars: Visions Volume 2 will premiere on May 4 on Disney+. May 4 is Star Wars Day, which is known for the catchphrase, “May the 4th be with you.”

Star Wars: Visions is an animated anthology series that includes short films set in or inspired by the Star Wars universe. These films can exist outside of the Star Wars canon, but they still capture the themes and emotions of the Lucasfilm franchise. The series offers a global perspective on Star Wars, as Volume 2 will consist of nine short films from nine studios from around the world. Lucasfilm also revealed that each short film features unique animation styles.

“With Volume 1, the imaginative minds of Japan’s anime industry were on full display,” Waugh said. “With Volume 2, we expanded our canvas to take audiences on a global tour of some of the most talented creators from around the world.
