Star Wars: Visions, an anime anthology series, to include an episode set after Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, which will show us what happened after the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Knowing this, we wonder: is the episode canon or not?
Recently revealed, Production IG director Kenji Kamiyama spoke about his arrival in the nine-episode anime series with a chapter called The Ninth Jedi. Although we know very little about the plot, Kamiyama made it clear that he will enter the state of the galaxy after the great confrontation between Rey and Emperor Palpatine, which mobilized the entire free galaxy.
“I was wondering, after Episode IX, has the galaxy settled in peace?“he explained.”We all like the stories of the Jedi and lightsabers, but what happened to the Jedi Knights after the movie series? My story is about that“. Kamiyama says that the episode will be a hand-drawn animation that he will depict.”a galactic level adventure with a different character.”
According Wookieepedia, no canonical Star Wars media has addressed what happens after the events of The Rise of Skywalker. Lucasfilm has yet to confirm whether any of the Visions episodes will be considered part of canon history. We have learned that the creators of each short were told that their stories did not have to fit the timeline, so it is difficult to know if any episode will be considered part of the official Star Wars story. If it were canon, The Ninth Jedi would become the last part of the Star Wars timeline.
We don’t have much information on Visions, the upcoming Star Wars series for Disney Plus, but we will know that the series will be released on September 22, 2021.
