About Star Wars Forces of Destiny (edited from StarWars.com)
A new animated micro-series, Disney’s Star Wars Forces of Destiny, celebrates some of the saga’s most memorable characters. The shorts premiered July 3 on YouTube.com/Disney, are 2-3 minutes each, and feature stories which shape the destinies of Rey, Jyn Erso, Princess Leia, Sabine Wren, Padmé Amidala, Ahsoka Tano, and other Star Wars icons.
Fans will hear some familiar voices. Daisy Ridley (Rey), Felicity Jones (Jyn Erso), Tiya Sircar (Sabine Wren), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano), and Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata, narrating the series) each reprise their roles for the show.
“Star Wars Forces of Destiny is for anyone inspired by Leia’s heroism, Rey’s courage, or Ahsoka’s tenacity,” said Kathleen Kennedy. “We’re thrilled that so many of the original actors are reprising their roles in these shorts.”
A new short will premiere online each day at 10 a.m. PT, and culminated with the broadcast debut on Disney Channel, Sunday, July 9; books, apparel, bedding, and toys based on the series will arrive August 1.
