Disney+ continues to expand the Star Wars universe in interesting ways, and the streaming service’s latest project may be the wildest and most inventive interpretation of the galaxy far, far away we’ve ever seen.

Disney has released the first trailer for Star Wars: Visions, a new Star Wars anime anthology series that was created in collaboration with seven acclaimed Japanese anime studios — including Kamikaze Douga, TRIGGER, and Production I.G. The series is reminiscent of The Matrix franchise’s 2003 anime anthology film, The Animatrix, and is composed of nine shorts that deal with Jedi, droids, and other Star Wars hallmarks that have been given the traditional anime treatment. The series can be experienced with either the original Japanese audio or in an English-dubbed version, with the latter featuring a stacked cast that includes David Harbour, Lucy Liu, George Takei, Henry Golding, and even Temuera Morrison, who reprises his role of Boba Fett in the episode “Tatooine Rhapsody.” Star Wars: Visions premieres on Disney+ on September 22.
