Life is gradually trudging back to normalcy. After the radio silence that 2020 offered, we've got a lot to look forward to, in the coming years. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy announced that 'Star Wars' will be entering the world of anime with a series of short films called 'Star Wars: Visions' for Disney+. 'Visions' will be a series of animated short films that celebrate the Star Wars galaxy through the lens of anime creators. There will be 10 "fantastic visions" in all, Kennedy said.

This isn't the first time that 'Star Wars' has entered the realm of animation. In 2003, we saw the 'Star Wars: Clone Wars' animated series that tied up loose threads between 'Star Wars: Attack of the Clones' and 'Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith'. Further, Clone Wars was fleshed out more with 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' and 'Star Wars: Rebels'. The latest Star Wars animated series, 'The Bad Batch', revolves around a group of Clone Troopers that had genetic abnormalities.

Here's all you need to know 'Star Wars: Visions'.

Release date

'Star Wars: Visions' will release in 2021 on Disney+.
