A new trailer also dropped yesterday showcasing some of the fantastic animation from the Japanese studios. The Playlist also has a breakdown of which studio is working on what episodes.
The studios creating the nine shorts include Kamikaze Douga – “The Duel”; Geno Studio (Twin Engine) – “Lop and Ochō”; Studio Colorido (Twin Engine) – “Tatooine Rhapsody”; TRIGGER – “The Twins” and “The Elder”; Kinema Citrus – “The Village Bride”; Science Saru – “Akakiri” and “T0-B1”; and Production I.G. – “The Ninth Jedi.”
I’m extremely hyped for episodes like The Elder and Lop & Ocha.
