translated from Spanish: “Star Wars” embraces the spell of anime with “Star Wars: Visions”

Los Angeles. “Star Wars” embraces the mystery and magic of anime in “Star Wars: Visions,” an ambitious animated series on Disney+ that crosses the stories of the galactic saga with the essence and unique style of Japanese animation. It is exciting to see all these legendary anime studios tackle a saga as iconic as ‘Star Wars’,” actor Henry Golding, well known in Hollywood for “Crazy Rich Asians” (2019) and who here lends his voice to the English dubbing, told EFE. Golding (Betong, Malaysia, 1987) also stressed that not only were those studios allowed to “give their own twist” to “Star Wars” but were also guaranteed total freedom to go beyond the canon of the huge saga devised by George Lucas.Available on Disney+ since September 22, “Star Wars: Visions” is composed of nine independent short films designed by seven different studios. Kamikaze Douga, Geno Studio, Studio Colorido, TRIGGER, Kinema Citrus, Science SARU and Production I.G. are the anime companies that have entered the “Star Wars” universe.   “Akakiri,” the final short in the series, is voiced by Golding, who was absolutely delighted and willing to dive into “Star Wars.” When they mentioned this I accepted one hundred percent. I mean, who’s stupid enough to say, ‘Oh, let me read the script first…'” he joked. Akakiri” tells the story of an experienced Jedi, Tsubaki, who faces a very dangerous mission to protect his beloved Misa.Golding reflected on the tragic and somber tone that permeates each of the frames of “Akakiri.” The good guy doesn’t always win. You know? There are times in life when darkness overcomes good and light,” he said. The actor also stressed that one of his challenges was to bring with his voice the sense of absolute honor, loyalty and commitment that govern Tsubaki’s conduct.” We come across a man who is willing to make the greatest sacrifice for the person he loves.” In another sense, Golding explained that “Star Wars: Visions” offers “windows” to infinite possibilities within “Star Wars”, so much so that the story of a short film like “Akakiri”, in his opinion, could give rise to a film by itself.

And I think putting an Asian protagonist in a Jedi movie would be the best thing for everyone,” he said with a laugh as he applied for that hypothetical role. “Star Wars: Visions” reinforces Lucasfilm’s commitment to grow more and more on the small screen, a medium that has given it almost more joy than cinema in recent years. After the very controversial reception that the third trilogy of films had among fans and critics (not to mention other failures such as “Solo”, in 2018), Star Wars” has found calmer and more favorable waters recently on television with brilliant examples such as “The Mandalorian”. This series, starring Chilean Pedro Pascal and which is the first non-animated television production of “Star Wars”, has become a great phenomenon around the world since its premiere in 2019.Waiting for the third season of “The Mandalorian”, fans of “Star Wars” will be able to see in December “The Book of Boba Fett”, about the famous bounty hunter Boba Fett, and in the future will arrive “Andor” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi” with Diego Luna and Ewan McGregor as protagonists, respectively.
