With The Bad Batch finished for the year and season 2 coming in 2022, we definitely need another Star Wars project to tide us over until we finally make it to December when The Book of Boba Fett premieres. Thankfully, Disney+ has us covered as the anime anthology series, Star Wars: Visions, makes its debut on Wednesday, Sept. 22.
The anthology marks the first time the franchise has ever told stories in a galaxy far, far away in the medium of anime. It’s an exciting first step into a new frontier that fans of Star Wars and the Japanese art form are sure to enjoy.
Featuring tales animated by several studios with differing styles, Star Wars: Visions hops around the known canon timeline to show varying perspectives and experiences throughout this vast universe. Fans of the franchise can anticipate stories involving former Siths, a rock band being hunted by an infamous bounty hunter, two twins raised by the Dark Side, and more!
For viewers wondering if the series is one both young and adult Star Wars enthusiasts can enjoy, here’s what we know about the anthology’s age rating.
Star Wars: Visions age rating
An official rating has yet to be released for the series. We’ll update this section when the Disney+ rating is available.
However, we can say that viewers should be advised that the typical fantasy violence found in the live-action Star Wars movies and their animated counterparts, like The Clone Wars and its spin-off The Bad Batch, is present throughout the anthology.
The fighting sequences featured are intense. Some killing strikes are implied while others are shown on screen. While the violence is no more graphic than what is often seen in Star Wars projects, this series isn’t akin to LEGO Star Wars in tone or in depictions of combat.
Death, execution, war, and murder are topics of discussion. The series also doesn’t shy away from showing villages being raided or slaughtered fighters no matter how brief.
Older children, particularly those of the PG audience, will likely be fine watching Star Wars: Visions. Younger children may find some of the scenes distressing.
