It’s been revealed that Lucasfilm is very interested in developing more non-canon Star Wars projects like Disney Plus’ Visions.
This was revealed by Murphy’s Multiverse in a recent exclusive article they posted.
The new Star Wars animated series, Visions, just dropped on Disney Plus and people have been loving it.
The series is non-canon and Visions executive producer and Lucasfilm executive James Waugh revealed that he’s open to developing more non-canon Star Wars content that isn’t beholden to the rest of the live-action and animated slate.
Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
It’s something we are interested in. The reason we approached Visions as it was is we wanted to empower specific creators within their process and medium. So much of the stuff you see in Visions… the specificity of anime as a medium justifies a lot of the storytelling. So do I think we could do more none-timeline storytelling? I think under the Visions framework, absolutely. There is a certain joy in having celebratory content that is removed from the gravitas of the canon. We’ll have to see what the fandom wants.
Lucasfilm wants to develop more non-canon Star Wars projects
So, does this mean that we’re going to see more Star Wars video games that aren’t connected to the main Star Wars saga?
Does this mean that we’re going to get more interesting Star Wars shows, books, videos games…?
I think it does and I would really love to see Lucasfilm explore this non-canon area of the Star Wars universe.
