Star Wars: Forces of Destiny returns with seven brand new episodes for May the Fourth. The episodes return May 4th at 10:00am PDT on Disney YouTube, followed by a TV special on the Disney Channel on May 25!
Star Wars: Forces of Destiny are episodes that fill in the backstory of some of my favorite characters, focusing primarily on the amazing women of Star Wars. Many actors, both from the big and small screen, are reprising their roles—Mark Hamill (Luke), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz), Kelly Marie Tran (Rose), Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Catherine Taber (Padmé), and Matt Lanter (Anakin) to name just a few.
Here is the full episode list with quick synopses. I am most looking forward to more tales of Hera, Sabine, and Ahsoka, especially now that Rebels has ended. Which are you most looking forward to?
“Chopper and Friends” – When Chopper enlists a pair of Ewoks to help crew the Ghost, Hera is surprised to discover how resourceful the little warriors are.
“Monster Misunderstanding” – After a water monster attacks the docks of Naboo, Queen Amidala discovers that poachers have been trying to steal the creature’s baby.
“Art History” – While on a covert mission to free their people, Sabine and her brother risk everything to destroy an Imperial outpost that has defaced an important Mandalorian monument.
“Porgs!” – After discovering that porgs have been tearing blue wiring out of the Falcon, Chewbacca goes on a mission to find the blue moss they need for their nest.
“Perilous Pursuit” – In a dangerous snowspeeder chase across Starkiller Base, Rey and Finn work together to escape relentless snowtroopers.
“Traps and Tribulations” – Luke and Leia help a pair of Ewoks by resetting their traps to stop a rampaging Gorax.
“A Disarming Lesson” – During a lightsaber training exercise, Ahsoka encourages Ezra to find his inner strength in order to anticipate her attacks on the fly.
