Season 2 Episode 1: “Hasty Departure”
"Hera and Sabine liberate an Imperial shuttle, but because Sabine was rushing, they board the wrong ship and it’s full of troopers! Chopper flies the correct shuttle and rescues his friends mid-air."
Star Wars Rebels may be over (crying, I’m not still crying) but the stories continue, this time with the dynamic duo of Sabine and Hera.
Season 2 Episode 2: “Unexpected Company”
"Ahsoka joins Anakin on a mission planned for just he and Padme. Anakin, upset at the intrusion, sets a quicker flight path that puts them in the path of a Separatist blockade. The three must put differences aside to get past the blockade."
Matt Lanter (Anakin), Ahsoka (Ashley Eckstein), and Padme (Catherine Taber) return for a Star Wars: The Clone Wars reunion, of sorts. I’m still not a fan of Anakin’s feminine look, but that’s a story for another time. Thankfully, the episode delivers the goods, and it’s nice just having the team of “Sky-guy” and “Snips” back at it again!
Season 2 Episode 3: “Shuttle Shock”
"On their approach to Canto Bight, Finn and Rose encounter a pod of creatures in the atmosphere. When a tentacle hits the shuttle and shorts out BB-8, Finn and Rose must work together to fix BB-8 and land the shuttle safely."
Join Finn and Rose on the final leg of their journey to the (beautifully) awful town of Canto Bight, where they bump into a group of whales. Do you think Ezra’s with them?
Season 2 Episode 4: “Jyn’s Trade”
"A Chadra-Fan child snatches Jyn’s kyber crystal necklace away and Jyn gives chase. When she finally catches the kid and retrieves her necklace, she realizes the child is just hungry and gives him her piece of fruit."
Jyn Erso is a bad ass, but once again on Forces of Destiny, we see a softer side of the hardened rebel.
Season 2 Episode 5: “Run Rey Run”
"While scavenging inside a Star Destroyer, Rey is cornered by Teedo who is on the hunt for a valuable part. Rey tries to warn Teedo the removal of the part will trigger the vessel’s collapse, but he does it anyway and she must help them both escape after Teedo is knocked out by falling debris."
Rey shows off her wheels, proving she’d make an excellent contestant for the Olympic games.
Season 2 Episode 6: “Bounty Hunted”
"Seeking help to free Han from Jabba, Leia, Chewbacca, and R2-D2 travel to Ord Mantell to meet with Han’s old friend Maz Kanata. Maz lures bounty hunter Boushh into a firefight so Leia can obtain his helmet and armor for a perfect disguise."
Wow. Disney is providing us with a deep-cut, with the appearance of the bounty hunter Boussh. Leia uses the likeness of these bounty hunter scum in Return of the Jedi in her mission to rescue Han from Jabba the Hutt.
Season 2 Episode 7: “The Path Ahead”
"Struggling with his Jedi training, Luke is grateful for master Yoda’s offer to join him on a sojourn through the trees and swamps of Dagobah, until he learns that Yoda will be riding in his backpack! Minding Yoda, Luke learns to trust what he feels instead of what he thinks he sees."
bringing the nostalgic feels along with him. Honestly, all that’s running through my mind in this episode is: “Run Run Run Jump. I can be a backpack while you run!”
Season 2 Episode 8: “Porg Problems”
"As Rey struggles to force lift stones, a curious porg snatches her lightsaber! Rey gives chase and force lifts the porg before it can dive into the water with her saber. Rey thanks the porg for the unexpected help in her training."
We meet Rey again, this time on the ancient Jedi homeworld of Ahch-To, with the cute porgs. Porgs!
Star Wars Forces of Destiny is a brilliant venue for introducing a younger audience to a galaxy far, far away, while mature enough for an adult audience. A classic win-win (win!).
Stay tuned for more episodes, which we’ll hook you up with when the time comes — thanks to Disney!
