Over the weekend Disney and Lucasfilm released a couple of new episodes of Forces of Destiny on their Youtube channel. The final episode of the three that were uploaded focuses on both Princess Leia Organa and Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels. Sabine takes on the guise of a bounty hunter in order to acquire key information on the Empire for the Rebel cause.
This episode occurs prior to Star Wars: A New Hope because Princess Leia admits that the Empire doesn’t know that she is aligned with the Rebels and the Storm Troopers are trying to keep her safe from kidnapping. However, after Sabine “captures” Leia, things don’t go exactly as planned. An actual bounty hunter by the name of IG-88 is there to acquire the same information by any means necessary.
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.
