Forces of Destiny has finally arrived! The first episode aired Monday July 3rd on Disney’s Youtube channel. It starts with Rey’s journey after she meets BB-8 on Jakku. The episodes are 3 minute shorts but they are full of emotions, heroism and character.
President of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy said it best:
“Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is for anyone who has been inspired by Leia’s heroism, Rey’s courage, or Ahsoka’s tenacity….
We’re thrilled that so many of the original actors are reprising their roles in these shorts, which capture the small moments and everyday decisions that shape who these characters are.
It is a fun new way for people to experience Star Wars.”
Dave Filoni does it again! He is truly a mastermind when it comes to Star Wars, specially its animation. He captures so much emotion and character in these 2D short episodes. This new series proves to show that Star Wars is for everyone.
I’m really excited to see where this show goes. As a woman, I am really happy to see a Star Wars show that is focused on the amazing journey of strong female characters we love in this far away galaxy.
