Volume 2 was announced at Star Wars Celebration in May 2022, with the promise of even more unique animation styles than before.
Unlike the first volume, which just featured animation from Japanese studios, Volume 2 boasts a broader selection of animation styles from multiple countries around the world.
How many episodes of Star Wars: Visions Volume 2 are there?
There are nine short films in total, all of which are available to stream on Disney+ now. The shorts range from 14 to 19 minutes long.
The animation studios involved in the new series are El Guiri (Spain), Cartoon Saloon (Ireland), Punkrobot (Chile), Aardman (United Kingdom), Studio Mir (South Korea), Studio La Cachette (France), 88 Pictures (India), D’art Shtajio (Japan), and Triggerfish (South Africa).

Following the announcement of Volume 2 last year, executive producer James Waugh explained that Visions would not become part of the canonicalised Star Wars universe, but that these short films could influence future storytellers.
“That’s right, every piece of Star Wars influences future Star Wars storytellers in some form or other,” Waugh told CBR. “So are there plans to integrate Visions into the timeline saga storytelling? Not currently, but I have no doubt that will see things that were in Visions become part of the fabric of Star Wars over the next decades.”
