Disney and Lucasfilm have released the first Star Wars: Forces of Destiny animated short, “Sands of Jakku” and featuring Rey (Daisy Ridley), and BB-8.
Developed by Lucasfilm Animation, Star Wars Forces of Destiny remain true to the Star Wars canon, showing how choices both big and small ultimately shape the destinies of beloved characters. The animated micro-series will be available on Disney YouTube ahead of a two-part TV special featuring eight additional shorts on Disney Channel in fall 2017.
The shorts feature the voices of Daisy Ridley (Rey), Felicity Jones (Jyn), Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano), and Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata).
