Star Wars Forces of Destiny Review: “Sands of Jakku”

***This is a review of “Sands of Jakku,” the first episode in the Star Wars Forces of Destiny animated micro-series. There will be spoilers.***

They’re finally here! After being announced first at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this past spring, Star Wars Forces of Destiny has arrived with its first episode, “Sands of Jakku,” featuring an adventure with Rey and BB-8. If you have not seen the episode yet, you can see it now on Disney’s YouTube Channel.

These new animated shorts are very much in the tradition of the Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series that ran for three seasons on the Cartoon Network, from 2003-2005. Clone Wars and Forces of Destiny are stories told in bite-sized chunks that  run between two-three minutes. You wouldn’t think much territory would be covered in such a brief time. However, if you watched Clone Wars, you know that’s a misleading assumption. This first episode of Forces of Destiny is filled to the brim with Star Wars goodness.
