Star Wars: Visions: Masi Oka on the Difference Between Japanese and American Voice Acting

With the anime anthology series Star Wars: Visions now streaming on Disney+, I recently spoke with Masi Oka about voicing one of the characters in the episode titled The Ninth Jedi. If you haven’t seen the trailer, Star Wars: Visions brings together seven Japanese anime studios for nine standalone stories that take place at different times in the Star Wars universe. Each studios uses their own unique style of animation and storytelling to deliver episodes that range from 13 to 22 minutes and feature all types of characters and locations. If you’re a fan of anime and Star Wars, you need to push play on these episodes immediately.

During my interview with Masi Oka he talked about how he’s the only person who did visual effects work on the Star Wars prequels and a voice on Visions, what he was told about his episode and character before signing on, his reaction when he found out he’d be a Jedi and using a lightsaber, what people would be surprised to learn about the voice recording process, the difference between Japanese and American voice acting, and more. In addition, he talks about getting to be part of David Leitch’s assassin movie Bullet Train which also stars Brad Pitt.
