Disney Plus posted a new trailer for "Star Wars: Visions." This anthology series is expected to give galaxy far, far away an anime treatment. The series has also been given a premiere date: September 22.

Disney has disclosed which performers will voice the series in the English dub and the original Japanese version, Hypebeast said. There are a few major names on the list, too. Temuera Morrison, who played Boba Fett in The Mandalorian, joins Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Neil Patrick Harris, Alison Brie, David Harbour, Henry Golding, George Takei, and Lucy Liu in the role of the bounty hunter.

Kamikaze Douga, Geno Studio, Studio Colorido, TRIGGER, Kinema Citrus, Science Saru, and Production I.G. are responsible for the nine episodes. The Duel, Tatooine Rhapsody, The Twins, The Village Bride, The Ninth Jedi, T0-B1, The Elder, Lop & Ocho, and Akakiri are among the shorts' titles.

"Lucasfilm is partnering with seven of the most talented anime studios in Japan to bring their signature style and unique vision of the Star Wars galaxy to this inspired new series," executive producer James Waugh said in a statement.

"Their stories showcase the full spectrum of bold storytelling found across Japanese animation; each told with a freshness and voice that expands our understanding of what a Star Wars story can be, and celebrates a galaxy that has been such an inspiration to so many visionary storytellers," he added.

Meanwhile, NME said Taika Waititi has provided an update on the status of his own Star Wars film, which he is producing and co-writing with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who wrote 1917.

“It’s still in the ‘EXT. SPACE’ stage,” Waititi said in an interview with Wired. “But we’ve got a story. I’m really excited by it because it feels very me.”

The filmmaker said he wants to travel down that small sincerity lane in his films when it comes to putting his own style into the new film.

“I like to fool the viewer into thinking ‘ha it’s this’ and then them going, ‘Damn it, you made me feel something!’”

After directing and starring in multiple episodes of The Mandalorian, the filmmaker will continue his connection with the franchise in the forthcoming feature.
