The announcement of the second season, which will coincide with Star Wars Day, was made in May 2022 during Star Wars Celebration, but no additional information was provided.

The new season will feature stories from nine animation studios from around the world – Cartoon Saloon (Kilkenny, Ireland), Punkrobot (Santiago, Chile), MIR Studio (Seoul, Korea), Aardman (Bristol, UK), Triggerfish (Cape Town, South African and Galway, Ireland), D’Art Shtajio (Tokyo, Japan), Studio La Cachette (Paris, France), 88 Pictures (Mumbai, India), and El Guìrí Studios (Madrid, Spain).

In 2021, Executive Producer James Waugh told CNET, “Kanako (Producer Kanako Shirasaki) and I are probably incredibly biased; we love these shorts and really do think that this is such a great framing for Star Wars.”

“As a first formal venture into anime, each ‘Star Wars: Visions’ short bears a unique Japanese sensibility, which in many ways aligns with the tone and spirit of Star Wars storytelling,” stated the press release when the series was first announced. “From the beginning, stories told in the Star Wars galaxy have counted Japanese mythology and the films of Akira Kurosawa among their many influences, and these new visions will further explore that cultural heritage through the unique animation style and perspective of each anime studio.”
