To say Star Wars has had a rough couple of years would be an understatement. After poor showings from both Book of Boba Fett and Obi Wan, Mandalorian season 3 delivered a tumultuous season devoid of creativity and with a switch and bait story that sidelined our main stars in favour of Bo-Katan.

With Kathleen Kennedy championing her “Force is Female” motto, it’s of no surprise to find a lot more projects on the horizon being female led. There’s nothing wrong with that of course, as evidenced by the second season of Star Wars: Visions, which proves to be one of the more creative and enjoyable outings to come from Lucasfilm in quite some time.

Visions celebrates Star Wars day in style with bitesize chapters of mythos and stunning visual design, set across its sprawling galaxy far, far away. The artwork cannot be understated here, with a wide array of different styles on offer. From stop motion and clay animation to watercolour and cartoons with thick lines, no stone is left unturned in the desire to craft something visually stunning.

When it comes to the narratives for these tales, Visions is a bit of a mixed bag. There are definitely episodes that stand out, with some excellent stories that really get you invested into the world, including a train heist and a chapter depicting a fight between a Sith and former-Sith apprentice.

However, there are also some tonally jarring episodes too, while 3 of these 9 chapters feature protagonists on very similar journeys that end in almost identical ways. It’s very clear that the narrative is not the focus here, with much of the heavy lifting done with the visuals.

With chapters clocking in at around 15 minutes or so, Visions is an easy way to binge through a variety of different styles and ideas. The whole season can be watched in a few hours and honestly, you’ll probably have an absolute blast in doing so.

Had the writing been a bit tighter, this could have been a surprise breakaway hit this year but if you’ve been enjoying Love, Death and Robots lately, Visions is definitely worth sinking your teeth into.
