Disney’s expansion of the Star Wars universe continues apace. On Tuesday, the company released a trailer for Star Wars: Visions, a series of short animated films that debuts on Disney on September 22. Visions will look strikingly different from other animated Star Wars escapades; the shorts were made by seven Japanese anime studios, each with its own distinct aesthetic.

There are nine shorts in total: “The Duel” by Kamikaze Douga; “Lop and Ochō” by Geno Studios (Twin Engine); “Tatooine Rhapsody” by Studio Colorido (Twin Engine); “The Twins” and “The Elder” by Trigger; “The Village Bride” by Kinema Citrus; “Akakiri” and “T-B1” by Science Saru; and “The Ninth Jedi” by Production IG.

“We really wanted to give these creators a wide creative berth to explore all the imaginative potential of the Star Wars galaxy through the unique lens of anime,” said executive producer James Waugh during a panel at Anime Expo Lite in early July. “We realized we wanted these to be as authentic as possible to the studios and creators who are making them, made through their unique process, in a medium they’re such experts at. So… this is their vision riffing off all the elements of the Star Wars galaxy that inspired them—hopefully to make a really incredible anthology series, unlike anything we’ve seen before in the Star Wars galaxy.”

When the show starts streaming next month, you’ll be able to watch it with the original Japanese cast or with an English-language dub. The cast for the latter contains plenty of names we recognize; Temuera Morrison returns as Boba Fett, and he’s joined by Lucy Liu, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Alison Brie, Simu Liu, Henry Golding, and Neil Patrick Harris, among many others.

George Lucas unapologetically borrowed from Japanese cinema when making Star Wars; it will be fascinating to see the reverse through an animated lens.
