More Emmy nomination reactions are pouring in — the latest batch from the team behind the Disney+ shows The Book of Boba Fett and Star Wars: Visions.
The latter series is an animated anthology series produced by Lucasfilm Animation, which tapped seven Japanese animation studios to bring their unique perspectives to the Star Wars universe through a series of short films, with “The Duel” being nominated for Outstanding Short Form Animated Program.
Disney+ offered written statements from Boba Fett‘s costume designer and stunt coordinator as well as a pair of VFX supervisors, while several Lucasfilm execs celebrated the success of Visions. I’ll let them take it from here…

STAR WARS: VISIONS
Lucasfilm executives James Waugh (SVP Franchise Content & Strategy), Jacqui Lopez (VP Franchise Production), Josh Rimes (VP Animation Development & Production), Executive Producers, “The Duel” – Outstanding Short Form Animated Program:
“We are thrilled for Star Wars: Visions to receive this nomination. Star Wars: Visions was created to be a collection of celebratory expressions of Star Wars storytelling through the lens of creators who are experts at their craft. The bold expressions of anime and the depth of imagination and world-building that art form provides fit so well with Star Wars, and we’re thrilled that the Emmy Awards recognized this with the nomination for Outstanding Short Form Animated Program.
We’re excited for our friends at Kamikaze Douga, the studio behind the nominated episode “The Duel,” to wake up to this exciting news. On behalf of Lucasfilm, congratulations to director Takanobu Mizuno, writer Takashi Okazaki, and all of the talented artists and animators who brought “The Duel” to life.”
