We’re going to see Rey again well before the next Star Wars film premieres at year’s end – in fact, she figures prominently in the new trailer for Star Wars: forces of Destiny.
One of the cool things about Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is that it features the character, voiced by Daisy Ridley, as one of several female characters whose lives will be explored in adventures before or perhaps in sync with the films.
Other characters to be featured include Jyn Erso (voiced by Felicity Jones), Ahsoka Tano (voiced again by Ashley Eckstein) , Princess/Senator Leia and more.
Star Wars Forces of Destiny premieres on YouTube.com/Disney on July 3rd.
Have you wondered what brought Rey to the where she was at the beginning of Star War Wars The Force Awakens? Or how Jyn Erso became the leader of the team to steal the Death Star Plans? How about Ahsoka Tano? Did you ever wonder what she might have gotten up to on her own time? Or Princess Leia… or Sabine Wren?
Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is a new micro-series (episodes of 2-3 minutes) that is built around the adventures of these incredible heroes and others.
The animated adventures will supported by a line of toys from Hasbro and a series of books.
Launching in July, the animated micro-series will be available on Disney YouTube ahead of a two-part TV special featuring eight additional shorts on Disney Channel in Fall 2017.
