According to the star wars website, during the panel on the series it was explained that the stories of this production are in different places in the chronology from the special franchise and will involve both new and familiar characters.
“We really wanted to give these creators ample creative space to explore the full imaginative potential of the Star Wars galaxy through the unique lens of anime.” said James Waugh, the executive producer of this project. “We realized that we wanted them to be as authentic as possible to the studios and creators who were making them, made through their unique process, in a medium in which they are so adept. So the idea was that this is their take on all the elements of the Star Wars galaxy that inspired them, hopefully to make a really amazing anthology series, unlike anything we’ve seen before in the Star Wars galaxy. ” .
