Rey and BB-8 Cross ‘Sands of Jakku’ in First ‘Star Wars Forces of Destiny’ Short
Disney has this whole Star Wars: The Last Jedi thing pretty much on lock until the next trailer, but Rey’s adventures don’t have to stop there. Witness an animated excerpt from The Force Awakens with the first official Star Wars Forces of Destiny short, featuring Daisy Ridley!
The first of multiple new animated shorts has made its way online, with a new one premiering each day at 1:00 P.M. EST / 10:00 A.M. PST. Star Wars secrecy being what it is, the new short only fills in gaps after Rey first met BB-8, also incorporating one of the creatures we glimpsed in the film.
Other Star Wars Forces of Destiny shorts will feature Rogue One star Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, Star Wars Rebels stars Tiya Sircar and Vanessa Marshall as Sabine Wren and Hera Syndulla, and Clone Wars originator Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano. Lupita Nyong’o also voices Maz Kanata, narrating the series
Star Wars Forces of Destiny will also incorporate books, apparel, bedding, Hasbro adventure figures & role play items beginning August 1st, while the collected shorts will air on The Disney Channel Sunday, July 9th. Watch the full trailer below, and stay tuned for more.
