The Force is strong with Star Wars fans this summer because our favorite heroines from a galaxy far, far away are coming to Lucasfilm Animation’s new series of animated shorts, Star Wars Forces of Destiny. Launching on Disney YouTube on July 3, the series will feature iconic heroes like Rey, Ahsoka Tano, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia, Padmè Amidala, and more, and will celebrate the heroic actions—no matter how big or small—of these fierce females. The new shorts will premiere online each day at 10 a.m. PT, culminating with their broadcast debut on Disney Channel, Sunday, July 9.
Take a look at this action-packed trailer for Star Wars Forces of Destiny:
It looks soooo good! We absolutely love seeing our favorite Star Wars females (and droid sidekicks, like BB-8) in animated form, and we can’t wait to see what epic adventures await them in Star Wars Forces of Destiny.
And if this news isn’t enough to make your day, there will also be Hasbro adventure figures of each of these heroines to add to our Star Wars collections or to gift to the youngsters in our lives. (But let’s be real, we want these toys for ourselves!) And more merchandise is to come. It’s going to be a great summer for us Star Wars fans.
