    "Star Wars" Goes Anime: "Visions" Trailer Unveils "Star Wars" Series Created By Japanese Anime Studios

    Sub or dub? You must choose, Anakin!

    Well, it was destined to happen: Star Wars has gone anime with its new series Star Wars: Visions.

    Reimagine the galaxy with #StarWarsVisions, an Original Series featuring stories from seven visionary Japanese anime studios, streaming September 22 on @DisneyPlus.


    Star Wars creator George Lucas always said Japanese samurai movies inspired his masterpiece, so it is only fitting that we get to see Japanese creators really take that to the next level.

    The Visions series will feature nine episodes created by seven different Japanese anime studios.

    There will be options to watch the dubbed version and the subbed version.

    So which will you choose?

    The English dub is stacked with talent: Lucy Liu, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Temuera Morrison, David Harbour, Neil Patrick Harris, George Takei, and Alison Brie (just to name a few).

    That being said, I think I will stick to the subbed version. This is the first time Japanese anime studios are getting their hands on Star Wars, so I want to experience fully their way.

    The artwork is going to blow people away. I mean, seriously, just look at this image:

    I also love that we're getting mostly new characters. Can't wait to find a new favorite character.
