Kamikaze Douga, Geno Studio (Twin Engine), Studio Colorido (Twin Engine), Trigger, Kinema Citrus, Science Saru and Production IG are the studios in demand and each used their own style of animation and storytelling to bring their own vision to life. of Star wars. The result looks very promising:
Star Wars: Visions will present “Japanese sensibilities while respecting the tone and spirit of Star Wars storytelling, “says Disney, who notes that” from the start, Japanese mythology and Akira Kurosawa’s films were among the major influences of the stories of the galaxy Star wars. These new visions will further explore this cultural heritage through the unique animation style and perspective of each animation studio.
