The next Star Wars animated series, Star Wars Forces of Destiny, is set to be unlike any other. The new animated micro-series will be celebrating some of Star Wars’ most beloved and inspirational female characters, and will premiere July 3 on YouTube.com/Disney.
Each animated short will last about 2-3 minutes each, and will tell the untold stories that helped shape the destinies of Rey, Jyn Erso, Princess Leia, Sabine Wren, Padmé Amidala, Ahsoka Tano, and other Star Wars icons. The characters will even be voiced by familiar stars Daisy Ridley (Rey), Felicity Jones (Jyn Erso), Tiya Sircar (Sabine Wren), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano), and Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata, narrating the series).
A new short will premiere online each day at 10 a.m. PT, culminating with their broadcast debut on Disney Channel on July 9. And that’s not all, there will even be a whole line of books, apparel, bedding, and toys based on the series to arrive on August 1 too.
