This new ‘Star Wars’ art makes us die for an anime prequel series
in the last few years, war of stars has gradually established itself as a force to be reckoned with in anime. We recently got the adorable one Grogu and Dust Bunny short of Studio Ghibli, which was as short as sane. More importantly, 2021 will see the release of Star Wars: Visionsan anthology show featuring work from several leading Japanese animation houses that have been granted permission to go wild in a galaxy far, far away.
visions will return for a second volume in early 2023, this time focusing on animation studios outside of Japan from Japan, India, UK, Ireland, Spain, Chile, France, South Africa and the United States. In addition, there was a tempting visit to recently Neon Genesis Evangelion‘s Production IG by Dave Filoni and Kathleen Kennedy, although we don’t know what it was about.
But a new piece of fan art has us asking for something from the prequels. Check out this awesome image that introduces Anakin, Vader, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, Padme, and Maul from the prequel era in one anime:
The reaction from fans in the comments has been very positive, with most summing it up simply as “badass”. Later in the thread, artist @sneakygecko explains that these are actually from the AI art, although this image is then significantly edited and reworked in Photoshop to create the final product.
So far the official war of stars Anime projects have all been non-canon, although we’d like to see some kind of official prequel-era storyline in that style. Sure, the adventures of these characters have been extensively explored in The clone warsbut there must still be room for a few more stories.
