The latest Star Wars story is already here, and it’s free on YouTube.
It’s a series of shorts called Forces of Destiny, and each one delivers action, humor, and a genuinely heartfelt moment of heroism.
The best part about the series, authored by Marvel alum Jennifer Muro, is that it fills in backstory on characters that you always wondered about.
And yes, it’s canon.
Forces of Destiny is a 16-episode series, and the first eight were released this month.
Eight more will come in October.
The series is episodic, jumping around in time from Episodes 1 through 7 of the films. We see a lot of Rey (Daisy Ridley) and BB-8, though we also stop in to see Ahsoka (Ashley Eckstein) kicking butt, Leia doing spycraft, and Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) being her usual chaotic good rogue.
All the actors from the movies and TV series voice their characters, except Leia (RIP Carrie Fisher), who is voiced by Shelby Young.
