New ‘Star Wars’ cartoon shorts debut online
    2017-July-5  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

The latest Star Wars story has arrived. The debut of “Star Wars Forces of Destiny,” a series of original animated shorts are set in that galaxy far, far away and focusing on the franchise’s roster of female heroes. The first installment, titled “Sands of Jakku,” covers a moment not seen in “The Force Awakens”: Rey (voiced by Daisy Ridley) and BB-8 must escape a ravenous, metal-craving Nightwatcher worm (which keen-eyed* film viewers briefly spotted early on in the film) on their way to Niima Outpost — the place where they eventually meet Finn.

Lucasfilm Animation has produced an initial run of 16 shorts. New shorts will arrive daily at YouTube.com/Disney ahead of their broadcast premiere on the Disney Channel on July 9. Future episodes will center on Princess Leia, Padmé Amidala, “Rogue One”‘s Jyn Erso, “The Clone Wars” fan favorite Ahsoka Tano, and Sabine Wren from “Star Wars Rebels,” with each installment narrated by Maz Kanata and featuring John Williams’s seminal soundtrack.

In addition to Ridley, film stars John Boyega (Finn), Felicity Jones (Jyn) and Lupita Nyong’o (Maz) will reprise their roles, as will key talent from the TV series “Clone Wars and Rebels,” including Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka), Tiya Sicar (Sabine), and Vanessa Marshall (Hera Syndulla).

“The movies tell these epic heroes’ journeys, big pieces of mythology,” Carrie Beck, VP of Lucasfilm Story and Animation and a producer of “Forces of Destiny,” told Yahoo Movies earlier this year. “For this, we thought these stories could tell those moments of everyday heroism… the kind of stories that would be appropriate over two to three minutes.”
