    The ‘Star Wars Visions’ was a collection of various episodes or anecdotes from the ‘Star Wars’ universe. The series will release on May 4th, commonly known as the ‘Star Wars’ day. It is not clear whether all the episodes will drop at the same time, or if will it be a weekly release.

    The first season was limited to Japan and only Japanese animators partook in the creation of the series. The second season has diversified itself further. The second season will have nine episodes. The series is an anthology series that entails that there will be separate stories in each episode. Whilst the first season focused on anime, the second season is diversified and includes animation from all over the world. 

    The plot is also going to be unique to the country of animation as well to some extent. For instance, in the episode The Bandits Of Golak. A brother flees with his force-sensitive younger sister and takes refuge in a Dhaba.
