Star Wars: Visions Voice Cast Reveals Japanese and English Dub

Because a spectacular new trailer wasn't enough, Disney just announced the full voice cast for Star Wars: Visions, the upcoming anime anthology set in the galaxy far, far away. The English dub voice cast includes a few returning Star Wars alumni, and plenty of surprises. Not to be left behind, the Japanese voice cast includes several veterans of the industry, including the actors behind such iconic characters as Goku, Gon Freecss and more.

Star Wars: Visions is an anthology show bringing together seven anime studios for a variety of stories set across the history of the franchise, from before the events of Episode I, to after Episode IX. The series will include shorts by studios Kamikaze Douga (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders), Science SARU (DEVILMAN crybaby), Production IG (Ghost in the Shell), and Trigger (Promare, Kill la Kill) and more.

Anime anthologies based on popular sci-fi franchises aren't anything new, necessarily. After all, we did get The Animatrix shortly before the first sequel, The Matrix Reloaded was released. But hopefully the recent release of Marvel's What If...? and will prompt other studios to make their properties available for experimentation, and what better medium for said experimentation than animation? The trailer already shows how many different and unique stories and aesthetics can be told, while still feeling like Star Wars.

Not content with just gathering top animators, Disney has also gathered an impressive voice cast for Star Wars: Visions. The Japanese dub includes legends of the industry like Masako Nozawa (Dragon Ball), Megumi Han (Hunter x Hunter), Junya Enoki (Jujutsu Kaisen), and more.

If you prefer to watch your anime dubbed, you still get a voice cast full of Star Wars legends, and a few more surprises. Temuera Morrison reprises his role as Boba Fett, while Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bobby Moynihan also voice roles in the episode "Tatooine Rhapsody," while a few Marvel actors make the jump to the galaxy far, far away. Perhaps most exciting is that the episode "Akakiri" will be voiced by an entirely Asian cast, a first for a Star Wars property.
