Forces of Destiny Premieres July 3 on YouTube

The female-focused 2D animated shorts, Forces of Destiny, finally have a premiere date! Starting July 3 at 12pm CST (10am PST), a new FoD short will appear each day on Disney’s YouTube channel until July 9, when they will be broadcasted on the Disney Channel together. Starring Rey, Ahsoka, Jyn, Leia, Sabine, Hera, and Padme, the 2-3 minutes shorts tell never-before-seen (canon, mind you!) tales about everyone’s favorite batch of heroines. Originally introduced in the middle of the night pre-Celebration Orlando (link includes details about story lines and merchandise previews I saw on the SWCO ’17 show floor), a panel at the convention included a surprise appearance by Daisy Ridley and a screening of one of the shorts (BB-8 Bandits, which the clip at the start of the above video is from) and I have a review of it here. Make sure to tune in to either YouTube or the Disney Channel to check out this initial batch of 8 shorts (with 8 more to come at a later date) to see exciting new tales about your favorite characters, brought to life by (most of) their original actresses, and we’ll have reviews and impressions on the site once they air!
