Star Wars is one of those things everyone loves. To the point, it has released many things besides their iconic movies. Merch, toys, theme parks, and even cartoons. Now since Disney bought it they’ve become even more powerful.
But now they will be releasing a new animated series called “Star Wars Forces of Destiny.” Something that is going to be pretty sweet if you imagine that the animation team will be a mix of both Lucasfilm and Disney.
The series comes maybe as an answer to many fans since they were asking for more Star Wars comics, cartoons and toys. This series will provide all of them, as the animation style has a comic influence and an alliance has already been done with Hasbro. It’s also one of those smart marketing movements Disney tends to do.
Along with that, the series will be an eight episode short clips, as described in the trailer, that will be full of incredible adventures. Also, one of the coolest aspects is that it will focus on the feminine heroines of the saga. Featuring some of the most beloved ones as Padme, Rey, Jyn, and Ashoka.
This new show doesn’t only look promising, but it also has a bit of Princess Leia on it. As for the president of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy, it’s a kind of tribute to her and to the strong feminine figures she inspired. “Star Wars Forces of Destiny is for anyone who has been inspired by Leia’s heroism, Rey’s courage or Ahsoka’s tenacity.”
The animated shorts will be written by Jennifer Muro and directed by Brad Rau. They will last around three minutes each and they will also feature many of the actor’s voices for the characters. Since Daisy Ridley will voice Rey, Felicity Jones will do the same with Jyn Erso, as well as Tiya Sircar with Sabine Wren, Ashley Eckstein with Ahsoka Tano, Vanessa Marshall with Hera Syndulla, and Lupita Nyong’o with Maz Kanata, who is narrating the series.
