Disney Has Submitted A Star Wars: Visions Short For Academy Award Consideration – /Film
If “The Village Bride” is granted Oscar contention, the short film will become the 12th nomination belonging to a “Star Wars” related property. The “Star Wars: Visions” collection was a collaboration between seven different anime studios to create brand new stories featuring original and existing “Star Wars” characters and environments. It’s an interesting choice to nominate “The Village Bride,” considering it is one of the only wholly unique short films set in the “Star Wars” universe, focusing on entirely new characters with the exception of the battle droids.
“The Village Bride” is not the only short film being submitted by Disney for the upcoming award season. The studio has also submitted “Us Again,” a Disney+ exclusive short that was attached to the theatrical run of “Raya and the Last Dragon,” and two shorts from Pixar Animation, “Twentysomething” and “Nona,” which were both released as part of the “SparkShorts” series on Disney+. There’s no guarantee that any of the shorts will be nominated, but given Disney and Pixar’s history, it’s likely that at least one of them will earn a spot.
The entire series of “Star Wars: Visions” is available for streaming on Disney+.
