Star Wars: Visions debuted to the world this past weekend and it was as amazing as we all hoped it would be. Basically, Star Wars gathered up a bunch of different anime studios and invited them to make their own little Star Wars stories. They didn’t have to involve the Skywalkers or necessarily fit with established continuity. Just take the bells and whistles of Star Wars — lightsabers, the Force, the Dark Side, spaceships — and put them to good use.
Seeing as how there were only nine episodes of this (hopefully) first season, I figured it wouldn’t be too hard to rank them from least to most favorite. Keep in mind, I am a dummy. I don’t know the first thing about the history or anime or its influences or anything like that. I’m just a dude who likes Star Wars and really enjoyed this show. And this is my ranking.
Join me after the jump for my least to most favorite. Expect FULL SPOILERS for all of Star Wars: Visions. And feel free to share your own rankings in the comments!Read the rest of this entry
The Hawkeye TV show arrives at the end of November, so it’s a good two months away. Sounds like the perfect time to release the first trailer! And it’s super fun!
Rogers: The Musical? Are you kidding me? That’s hilarious! Love it. Jeremy Renner is great in this trailer, and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop seems super fun! There’s not enough Pizza Dog. And the trailer seems just a little bit dark? What’s up with that?
Either way, the show looks great in this first peak. I have high hopes for this one, as I’ve had for every Marvel TV show. You can check out my previous List of Six on what I hope to see in the show. And perhaps rewatch the trailer, because it’s fun!
Hawkeye arrives on Disney+ on Nov. 24 for a six-episode season.
As is usually the case, the world of entertainment continues to churn out new shows for us to absorb and enjoy. It’s just the way the wheel turns. And we got a couple of fun trailers for said entertainments this week!
Like Star Wars: Visions, which looks like the good people at Star Wars hired a bunch of anime pros and told them to go nuts.
This looks gorgeous! A wonderful blend of Star Wars and anime and looks like it’s going to explore all sorts of corners of the Star Wars universe. Sounds great to me! I look forward to this one going really wild. Star Wars: Visions is coming to Disney+ on Sept. 22.
Next up, we’re getting an even newer He-Man cartoon!
Apparently, Masters of the Universe: Revelation wasn’t enough for Netflix and they had this whole other He-Man cartoon in the works as well. This one is CGI and seems more geared towards younger audiences.
Looks pretty OK to me. I’m still waiting for something to do with He-Man what was done with She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Perhaps He-Man and the Masters of the Universe will finally be it! Even though it’s still not just a straight forward He-Man revival cartoon, which is what I’m pretty sure most fans want. Oh well.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe arrives on Netflix on Sept. 16.
Entertainment Weekly put out a nice article yesterday revealing that the Hawkeye TV show will come out on Disney+ on Nov. 24, just in time for families to get together and discuss the first episode on Thanksgiving! And check out this first official image.
That’s Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld as Clint Barton and Kate Bishop. We know various things about this show and all of them sound good. We’re going to get shades of the Trenchcoat Mafia. There’s rumors of some other characters showing up that I don’t want to spoil here. It’s basically sounding like a really solid show.
Hawkeye will be six episodes and that will take us through the end of the year. Likely that means Ms. Marvel will debut sometime in January, because Marvel doesn’t want to overlap shows. And all of that sounds good to me!
The first season of Loki is over and nothing will ever be the same. Theoretically. I’m excited to see where we go from here and am very pleased with the show. The first three of Marvel Studios’ shows are over and I am happy to say they are all an unqualified success! Oh to live in a world where we get to have and enjoy these shows.
TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good.
I’m not going to sugar coat things: if I were to rank the first three Marvel Studios shows, as most people online are doing, I would rank Loki last. I’ve never been as big a fan of the character as everybody else seems to be. I never cared for Loki in the comics, and I’m not smitten with him in the MCU. Simple as that. But this was still a solid show, there’s a lot of promise to be had in that big cliffhanger ending and I look forward to more Tom Hiddleston-led adventures in mischief.
