"Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is for anyone who has been inspired by Leia's heroism, Rey's courage, or Ahsoka's tenacity....We're thrilled that so many of the original actors are reprising their roles in these shorts which capture the small moments and everyday decisions that shape who these characters are. It is a fun new way for people to experience Star Wars."
Kathleen Kennedy[src]

Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is a canon animated micro-series that takes place around all eras of the Star Wars universe.[1] Consisting of sixteen episodes, it began airing online on July 3, 2017, and will air on television on July 9, 2017, after the release of the first eight episodes.[3] It will be accompanied by its own toy line and a series of tie-in books.[5]

DevelopmentEdit

With the debut of the third season of Star Wars Rebels, it was announced that Dave Filoni had stepped down as Supervising Director, in favor of helping to develop "future animation development."[6] Around this time, Jennifer Muro announced on her Twitter page that she was writing for a new Lucasfilm project.[7][8]

The project was first announced in an Entertainment Weekly article on April 13, 2017. It revealed the name of the series, the cast and crew, and that the first eight episodes would be released on Disney's YouTube channel and another eight episodes would air on Disney Channel during the fall.[1] The next day at Celebration Orlando (during the "Heroines of Star Wars" panel) the episode "BB-8 Bandits", which ended up being the second episode released online, was premiered.[2]

ReleaseEdit

On June 27, 2017, it was announced that on July 3 the first eight shorts will start to be released with a new short being released each day on Youtube until July 9 [3] when the first eight shorts will be released on Disney Channel. Later in October eight more episodes are set to be released.[9]
