We Got This Covered All Studios Featured on Star Wars: Visions Season 2
The first season of Visions concentrated on Japanese anime studios. I really loved the experimentation and range of approaches even within one genre, and the second season looks to continue that. I also love that "canon" has been thrown to the wind, similar to how George Lucas treated everything outside his own work prior to the Disney acquisition. Star Wars is mythology. It's a fairy tale. "A long time ago...", and all that. There should be no "canon". I think taking that approach with the entire franchise would be refreshing and help better differentiate it from Marvel. Continuity is an albatross.
