Animation studios from around the world are handling Star Wars: Visions season 2. 

Lucasfilm

The anime-inspired anthology series Star Wars: Visions returns to Disney Plus for volume 2 on May 4, Lucasfilm said Thursday. It's the first major announcement for Star Wars Day 2023 (aka May the 4th). And it brings the prospect of a Wallace and Gromit / Star Wars mash-up as Oscar-winning stop motion studio Aardman is one of the companies coming to a galaxy far, far away.

Lucasfilm also revealed the titles of each of season 2's nine episodes (though no plot details) and the animation studios responsible for each:

  • Sith, from El Guiri (Spain) 
  • Screecher's Reach, from Cartoon Saloon (Ireland)
  • In the Stars, from Punkrobot (Chile)
  • I Am Your Mother, from Aardman (UK)
  • Journey to the Dark Head, from Studio Mir (South Korea)
  • The Spy Dancer, from Studio La Cachette (France)
  • The Bandits of Golak, from 88 Pictures (India)
  • The Pit, from D'art Shtajio (Japan) and Lucasfilm (US)
  • Aau's Song, from Triggerfish (South Africa)

Aardman is probably the most famous of these studios -- it's known for Wallace and Gromit, and Chicken Run. The first season, which came out on Disney Plus in 2021, was exclusively done by Japanese studios.

 "We always saw Star Wars: Visions as a framework for celebratory expressions of the franchise from some of the best creators working today," executive producer James Waugh said in a release. "With Volume 2, we expanded our canvas to take audiences on a global tour of some of the most talented creators from around the world."

The first season wasn't part of the main Star Wars canon, but Waugh told CNET in 2021 that he has "no doubt that we will see things that were in Visions become part of the fabric of Star Wars over the next decades."
