The new animated series from Disney and Lucasfilm titled Forces of Destiny has released their first episode. The first episode focuses on Rey, the mysterious Jakku resident from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Rey must fight off a creature in order to save her new friend BB-8.
I’ll say that this episode short reminds us why Rey is bae. Rey is fricking awesome. Not only do we get to see her in action, but we also get to see that she truly cares about the creatures in Jakku even when they are trying to eat her friends. Oh, and we also get a glimpse at her using her latent Force powers against the creature.
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.
