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
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.
