The new animated series from Disney and Lucasfilm titled Forces of Destiny has released their fourth episode. This episode focuses on Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. She was the Padawan of Anakin Skywalker and was a hero of the Clone Wars. People who have not watched that animated series will probably not know who she is. So, this episode may not resonate as much.

In this episode we see Ahsoka on her way to a Jedi ceremony when she hears the cries of someone in trouble. As she often does, she jumps in to save people from a malfunctioning droid. It gets a little wet.

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 be released on Disney Youtube.  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.
