New Animated Series Explores “Untold Stories” of Star Wars Heroines

Recommended Videos

Has the universe answered our wishes for a Star Wars series that’s just about the amazing women of the franchise? It appears so, as a sneak peak for Disney Youtube’s upcoming animated shorts Star Wars Forces of Destiny was released today, and the great heroines of Star Wars we all know and love are here.

“The choices we make, the actions we take, shape us into forces of destiny,” narrates the short clip. The series puts a spotlight on Rey, Ahsoka Tano, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia, Padmè Amidala, and more, and promises to “explore the untold stories” that helped shape their destinies. In the trailer, we can already see that there’ll be lots of great action and Stormtrooper-fighting. Some scenes are pretty familiar, like Rey meeting BB-8 for the first time and taking the little droid under her care. Some of them appear to be less so, and oh my god I thought about Rogue One again and I can’t stop crying at seeing Jyn. 

Forces of Destiny airs on Disney Youtube starting July 3rd and will go up each day at 10 AM PT, before moving onto broadcast on Disney Channel July 9th, according to Oh My Disney. Which stories are you most excited to see?
