An official press release from Lucasfilm and Studio Ghibli revealed that the two companies are collaborating on a brand new Star Wars animated short. The hand drawn project is called “Zen – Grogu and Dust Bunny” and is directed by Katsuya Kondo with music by Ludwig Göransson – the talented composer behind the scores of The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. It will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 12, 2022. So if you’re interested in getting Zen with Grogu, now is a good time to make sure your Disney+ subscription is up to date.
Since it is a short film, it stands to reason that “Zen – Grogu and Dust Bunnies” will not have a very long running time. Luckily, if you’re interested in animated Star Wars entertainment, Disney+ has you covered. Take the recently released Tales of the Jedi, which charts the complicated timelines of Count Dooku (Corey Burton) and Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) with the Jedi Order. There’s also the 2021 anthology series Star Wars: Visions, made thanks to Lucasfilm’s collaboration with several well-known Japanese animation studios.
These titles are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the animated Star Wars offerings on Disney+, but before you watch them for the first time or again, why not check out Zen – Grogu and Dust Bunnies first ? a try once it premieres?
