7. Star Wars: Visions – Episode 2: Tatooine Rhapsody

“Tatooine Rhapsody” very much feels like a piece of media that hearkens back to the Cartoon Network shows that aired in the aughts.

The short film has a coolness to it and a laid-back vibe that sets it apart from the other episodes in the series. Not to mention, it’s less about fighting and destiny and more about music and friendship. “Tatooine Rhapsody” also has a non-conventional premise.

Jay was formerly a padawan who’d changed the course of his life when he stumbled upon Geezer, a Hutt wanted by Jabba. They met after Jay ran from a tragic battle where countless Jedi had been slaughtered. That moment set him on the path to becoming a musician and the lead singer of Star Waver.

Outside of its art style and general vibe, it’s hard to describe “Tatooine Rhapsody” other than stating the obvious. It’s weird. Not in a way that would leave viewers asking questions or scratching their heads, but rather that it doesn’t quite fit as a Star Wars project — at least not in the traditional sense.

One doesn’t think Star Wars and then pictures a rock band, so this episode takes a little getting used to, admittedly, but Star Waver’s music is good. The cameos by Boba Fett, Jabba the Hutt, and Bib Fortuna are also nice additions, and music being powerful enough to save a life is a particularly enjoyable element even if this short film feels skippable.
