Back in April, Star Wars fans learned of a brand new animated series in the Star Wars Universe, completely canon and focusing on the ladies of the saga. Forces of Destiny is a series of shorts lasting about three minutes each and airing both on Disney’s Youtube channel as well as Disney Channel.
Episodes began appearing on Disney’s Youtube channel on Monday, July 3rd. A new episode appeared each day until July 9th when the first eight shorts will be released on Disney Channel. The other eight shorts will appear later in the year (most likely leading up to the premiere of season four of Rebels) with a total of 16 shorts.
Head on over to Disney’s Youtube channel to see the first eight episodes: “Sands of Jakku” and “BB-8 Bandits” both starring Rey; “Ewok Escape” starring Leia; “The Padawan Path” which stars Ahsoka, “Beasts of Echo Base” with Leia, “The Imposter Inside” starring Ahsoka and Padme, “The Stranger” with Jyn Erso from Rogue One, and “Bounty of Trouble” with Leia and Sabine from Rebels.
The episodes are definitely meant for a younger audience with little to no action or fight sequences and a pleasant happy ending at the end of each short; however, it is fun to see our favorite heroines in their very own adventures. And with actresses such as Daisy Ridley, Ashley Eckstein, and Felicity Jones reprising their roles, it’s the perfect little tidbit to tide us over until Rebels season four arrives this fall.
Check out the trailer for Star Wars: Forces of Destiny below and be sure to keep an eye on Disney’s Youtube channel for the rest of the new episodes debuting in a few months.
