The official site shares the top highlights from the first two episodes of Star Wars: Visions, The Duel and Tatooine Rhapsody.
Spoiler warning: This article discusses story details from the Star Wars: Visions.
Star Wars: Visions – Episode 1: The Duel
1. Meet Ronin.
The reveal of Ronin comes almost immediately in “The Duel,” with a closeup on his face as he arrives at a quiet village. Ronin’s serious expression and scarred visage speak volumes about this wanderer, but his friendly, chirping astromech also lets us know that he must have a hero’s heart. Combined with stirring music, it’s an instantly memorable introduction.
2. A Sith rises.
While bandits arrive at the village, Ronin quietly sips his drink and watches. There’s a great sense of tension — an unspoken reality that this is just the beginning of the conflict. That feeling is confirmed when a dark warrior rises from the marauders’ vehicle and converts her staff into an umbrella-like lightsaber, filled with spinning red blades. She’s a terror, and the use of color in for only her weapon makes this Sith’s reveal even more impactful.
3. “It’s a shame I’m not a Jedi.”
I did not see that coming at all, and Ronin’s red-bladed lightsaber raises even more questions. It’s nice to be surprised, isn’t it?
(The duel was pretty fantastic, too.)
Star Wars: Visions – Episode 2: Tatooine Rhapsody
1. A Padawan lost.
It’s a jarring scene. The bodies of droids and clone troopers litter the battlefield and a boy with a lightsaber, Padawan braid trailing behind him, runs for his life. Hitting the end of the line, he hurtles to his fate and you can almost hear Obi-Wan admonishing another learner: “This lightsaber is your life.” As the weapon sputters a weak electric arc, this could be his end.
2. Boba Fett! Where?
The familiar dented helmet is among the crowd of polite concert goers, a surprise cameo in an anthology that doesn’t play by the standard rules of continuity. And he means business.
3. Gee surrenders.
As The Rolling Gales crash lands on a rainy planet, we have to echo Jay: we’ve got a bad feeling about this. But Geezer won’t let his friends pay for his misdeeds, whatever they might be.
