Who animates Star Wars: Visions season 2 ‘Sith’?
Star Wars: Visions season 2 episode ‘Sith’ tells the story of a “A former Sith apprentice [called Lola], leading a peaceful, but isolated life, is confronted by the past when her old master tracks her down.”
The episode is animated by a Spanish production company called El Guiri and directed by veteran filmmaker Rodrigo Blaas.
Blaas found success early in his career after co-founding the Stromboli Animation group in 1997, before joining Blue Sky Studios to work on the iconic Ice Age feature film.
The filmmaker would then transition to Pixar Animation Studios where he worked on well-known titles such as Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-E, and La Luna.
Before founding El Guiri with his partner, Blaas would also team up with Guillermo del Toro to develop Trollhunters as well as producing the award-winning short film Alma.
Visions season 2 ‘Sith’ voice cast revealed
There are just two main characters in the ‘Sith’ episode from Star Wars: Visions season 2, the former Sith apprentice Lola and her former master – who remains suspiciously unnamed at the time of writing.
Lola is voiced by Spanish actress Ursula Corbero, whilst the unnamed Sith Master is voiced by Spanish actor Luis Tosar.
Ursula Corbero is a 33-year-old actress from Barcelona who fans may recognize as both Tokyo from the infamous Money Heist series on Netflix, or as Baroness from the 2021 G.I. Joe Origins movie Snake Eyes.
She has also featured in The Tree of Blood, Paquita Salas, and Como Sobrevivir a una despedida, as well as dubbing roles in The Emoji Movie, The Secret Life of Pets, and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.
Corbero is joined on the cast of Star Wars: Visions season 2 ‘Sith’ by fellow Spanish star Luis Tosar.
Tosar is a 51-year-old veteran of the entertainment industry working as an actor, producer, and musician since 1994.
His biggest roles have arguably come in Cell 211, El Nino, Sleep Tight, Toro, Take My Eyes, and The Weakness of the Bolshevik – his only major English role was in Miami Vice alongside Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx.
