Massive news for Star Wars fans was announced today; Star Wars: Visions Volume 2 is coming to Disney+ this Spring.
Star Wars: Visions wowed fans back in 2021 when the first volume was released. The animated anthology series, produced by Lucasfilm, gave a new and diverse perspective to the Star Wars universe.
