Fans have always been editing ‘anime openings’ for things like Marvel movies and Star Wars films, but with the Sequel Trilogy all wrapped up, we have a new ‘anime intro’ from ForeverRed3000 focusing on the Sequel Era with Rey and Kylo Ren.
Check it out:
Just in case you don’t know, the animations come from a webshow called Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures. The show has actually just started its second season, now with animations coming from all three films, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker.
If you also can’t put your finger on the opening song, it’s Rewrite from Asian Kung-Fu Generation, which is probably best known for being an intro for Fullmetal Alchemist.
With Resistance finally ending, Disney is working on an upcoming show which is said to serve as a sequel to Star Wars Rebels. The animation style is said to be close to The Clone Wars, and after the divisive reaction on the style of Resistance, I’d say that would be a relief.
Personally, I would really love it if Star Wars gave us a 2D-animated series just like the new Voltron or Legend of Korra. With Galaxy of Adventures giving us the quality of animation that it does, I’m curious what a full-on show would look like. Heck, maybe Disney can even just make it a miniseries if they don’t want to throw too much money at it. With the influence of Star Wars on The Last Airbender, I’m just begging to have a show with that kind of smooth animation.
For now, we wait for the release of The Mandalorian Season 2 on Disney+ this October.
