A date has been set for the premiere of Star Wars: Visions volume 2, which continues the varied anthology of the first. This time, however, it won’t just be anime creators getting in on the Star Wars fun. In fact, there’s only one studio based in Japan that’s involved, with the rest hailing from all corners of the world to expand the vision further.

We’ll get to check them all out when they hit Disney+ on May 4.
