Star Wars today dropped a brand new poster for the upcoming series Visions, which is coming later this month to Disney+!
The poster is gorgeous, but that shouldn’t really be any surprise, since everything we’ve seen from the show so far is visually stunning. It looks so good, and this poster is no exception. We don’t have as much context to indicate what’s going on here, since these are mostly new stories and mostly new characters, but it’s still great to look at!
While the poster dropping was the main news, StarWars.com also added a nugget of information that I thought was worth mentioning here, which was also included on the bottom of the poster. The article stated that every episode of Visions will be available to stream at launch on September 22. Unless I’m forgetting something, I believe this is our first official confirmation of this, although many (including myself) wondered if it would be the case.
The typical format for Disney+ releasing shows is to release a new episode each week, such as with The Mandalorian, The Clone Wars, and The Bad Batch, as well as many shows from other properties as well. I am a HUGE fan of this kind of method and love the weekly releases and conversations that accompany them. However, given the nature of this show, it seemed much more likely that it would be released all at once, and I think that’s a wise decision.
These episodes don’t figure to be the full-length formats as some other shows (they’re described as “shorts”) and they don’t really fit into the established canon (which is fine but makes the weekly release format a bit less appealing). I think it’s a wise move to release all of them at once, and that will give us plenty to discuss in the days that follow it’s release!
Remember that this show will follow the new release schedule for Star Wars on Disney+, which is to release new shows on Wednesdays. So this will be dropping on Wednesday, September 22. I’m not a fan of that, but it seems the decision has been made. A week and a half later, LEGO Star Wars: Terrifying Tales will drop on Friday, October 1, releasing on a Friday like films and other related specials do.
