Disney and Lucasfilm released a new trailer for their upcoming Forces of Destiny series, giving us a look into the women we will see celebrated in the original animated series. In the short trailer, we get to see many familiar faces like Rey, Padme Amidala, and Princess Leia. It’s enough to make a geeky heart soar!

Each animated short will be about 2-3 minutes long and will feature Rey (Daisy Ridley), Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), Sabine (Tiya Sircar), Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) and Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o).

The series will stay true to the canon already established by Lucasfilm. Their  main focus is showing us how choices both big and small ultimately shape the destiny of these familiar characters. All of the characters featured in the series are all unique and special and this series seeks to represent and convey those qualities.

This animated mini-series will premiere on Disney Youtube on July 3. These shorts will serve to set up the basis for a two-part TV special featuring eight additional shorts on Disney Channel this Fall season.

What do you think of the Forces of Destiny trailer? Which Star Wars female character is your favorite? Mine is Padme, but that is because she was the first one I was introduced to growing up.
