The second season of Star Wars: Visions premieres on May 4!

We learned at Celebration last year that Star Wars: Visions would be returning with a second season, and we now know when: all nine episodes of the season will premiere on May 4.

Like the first season, Volume 2 will include a series of short anthology episodes giving a different ‘vision’ on the Star Wars universe, with nine different studios taking part in it from all over the globe. Those studios include El Guiri, Cartoon Saloon, Punkrobot, Aardman, Studio Mir, Studio La Cachette, 88 Pictures, D’art Shtajio (working in collaboration with Lucasfilm), and Triggerfish. These are different studios than the ones that worked on the first volume of stories, and this time it looks to be a broader stylistic approach. The first season focused mostly on Japanese anime, but this one will feature different animation styles from all over the world.

Additionally, Lucasfilm announced the episode titles for the shorts that each studio worked on. Those include:

  • “Sith” – El Guiri (directed by Rodrigo Blaas)
  • “Screecher’s Reach” – Cartoon Saloon (directed by Paul Young)
  • “In the Stars” – Punkrobot (directed by Gabriel Osorio)
  • “I Am Your Mother” – Aardman (directed by Magdalena Osinska)
  • “Journey to the Dark Head” – Studio Mir (directed by Hyeong Geun Park)
  • “The Spy Dancer” – Studio La Cachette (directed by Julien Chheng)
  • “The Bandits of Golak” – 88 Pictures (Ishan Shukla)
  • “The Pit” – D’art Shtajio and Lucasfilm Ltd. (directed by LeAndre Thomas, co-directed by Justin Ridge)
  • “Aau’s Song” – Triggerfish (directed by Nadia Darries and Daniel Clarke)

The series is executive produced by James Waugh, Jacqui Lopez, and Josh Rimes. Visions is made up of non-canonical stories from the Star Wars galaxy that explore different themes and dimensions of the saga, staying true to the heart of the franchise while taking it in some bold new directions. The first season was a huge hit, and I’m excited to hear about a second season coming soon.

It will be released on a Thursday rather than the typical Wednesday release slot for Disney+, dropping on Thursday to release on May 4, which is Star Wars Day. The streaming service tends to release something on that day to celebrate, and this year we’ll be getting quite the treat with nine episodes of Visions!
