There’s a lot of Star Wars news out there, but to be fair there is seemingly always a lot of Star Wars news out there. In addition to the chaos at the helm of the Han Solo spinoff, and the upcoming The Last Jedi, there’s a new Star Wars animated series to help tide you over until the next Star Wars movie is out in the theaters.
The show is called Star Wars Forces of Destiny, and it debuts Monday July 3 on YouTube. The episodes are short, two to three minutes at a time, and they will roll out daily until July 9, until the series debuts on Disney Channel. As for what Forces of Destiny is about, each episode focuses on a different character from the Star Wars universe, including TV series such as Star Wars Rebels and Clone Wars. Also, given that this is the Star Wars universe we’re talking about, the title Forces of Destiny is a bit telling.
If you are a Star Wars fan, this all probably sounds cool as is, but there’s more. The voice cast is star-studded. Daisy Ridley voices Rey, Lupita Nyong’o is back as Maz Kanata, and Felicity Jones portrays her Rogue One character Jyn Erso. That certainly kicks things up a notch. Clearly, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill online animated show.
