Prepare to dive into a series of original animated shorts that will explore the everyday heroic acts of some of our favorite leading ladies.
From Ahsoka to Rey, Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is a micro-series that carries forward the positive messages that Star Wars has been known to instill in its audience since its inception.
A new short will premiere online every day at 10am PST/1pm EST, with each short leading up to their broadcast debut on the Disney Channel on Sunday, July 9.
What’s even more exciting is that the series will also be accompanied by a variety of products, including books, apparel, and bedding as well as Hasbro adventure figures and role play items. Merchandise is scheduled to be available starting on August 1.
For many fans out there, this series is more than just a show, it’s a celebration of the women who have been integral in the Star Wars galaxy. In a world where gender continues to be a highly charged subject, it’s important to expose children (and adults) to different types of heroes. Forces of Destiny promises to do just that.
Here’s a sneak peek at the first eight shorts:
