Disney has begun releasing all-new animated shorts called Star Wars Forces of Destiny, and we’ve gathered them all in one place….
Disney’s Star Wars Forces of Destiny have been a great hit among fans of every gender and age, and the official YouTube account of Disney has been churning out the animated shorts just about every day in July.
The characters spotlighted are the heroines of the Star Wars franchise, from the films to animated series like The Clone Wars and Rebels. From Leia Organa (when she was a Princess) to Ahsoka Tano, these short stories give us a look into the adventures of some of the franchise’s greatest female leads. Check them out:
Star Wars Forces of Destiny: Sands of Jakku
"Rey fends off a creature that wants to devour her new friend, BB-8."
I love that Rey’s theme is played as the score for this short.
Star Wars Forces of Destiny: BB-8 Bandits
"Rey and BB-8 take off on a speeder to flee scavenger thugs who want to steal BB-8."
Star Wars Forces of Destiny: Ewok Escape
"Leia and Wicket work together to help Ewoks escape from stormtroopers."
Ah, just when you thought you were done with Ewoks, they pull you back in!
Star Wars Forces of Destiny: Beasts of Echo Base
"Leia and R2-D2 must free Chewie from the clutches of a ferocious wampa."
Those darn Wampas are at it again.
Star Wars Forces of Destiny: Bounty of Trouble
"On a secret mission, Leia and Sabine come under attack by bounty hunter droid IG-88."
This one has it all: Leia and Sabine working together for the Rebellion. And, IG-88!
Star Wars Forces of Destiny: The Padawan Path
"On her way to a Jedi ceremony, Ahsoka leaps into action to stop a malfunctioning droid."
Ah, I do miss Ahsoka and Anakin.
Star Wars Forces of Destiny: The Imposter Inside
"Ahsoka and Padme face off against a shape-shifting bounty hunter."
I love that Ahsoka and Padme teamed up for this one.
Star Wars Forces of Destiny: The Stranger
"Jyn comes to the aid of a little girl bullied by stormtroopers."
And finally, a Jyn Erso — Rogue One-centric — short.
These are all great ways to show the strong females of Star Wars and I, for one, am very glad Disney has taken on such a great project. We’ll obviously update this page when more animated shorts are added. Stay tuned!
