This is not the first time that Star Wars has ventured into the animated landscape. Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels were adored by the fans, and introduced fan favorite characters like Ahsoka Tano™, Commander Cody, Asajj Ventress™, and more. However, this will be the first time Star Wars enters into the world of anime.
Star Wars:Visions has no specific release date at this time, but will premiere on Disney+ some time in 2021.
