In his latest piece for IGN, Coffee With Kenobi host Dan Z takes a look at the animated shorts Forces of Destiny and their contribution to Star Wars canon. You can find an excerpt below:
When Star Wars: Forces of Destiny was announced at Celebration Orlando in April of 2017, fans were promised a bevy of new mini-adventures (about two to three minutes in length each) centered on many of the female Star Wars heroines, including Princess Leia, Rey, Jyn Erso, Ahsoka Tano, Maz Kanata, Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren, and others. Even cooler, these 2D animated segments would also be canonical — i.e. part of the “official” Star Wars in-universe history.
Forces of Destiny also includes books, comics, and amazing toys and collectibles, while many of the stars that bring these characters to life came back to do the voice work (Daisy Ridley, Felicity Jones, Ashley Eckstein, Lupita Nyong’o, Vanessa Marshall, and Tiya Sircar).
If you have not seen these shows (available for free on Disney’s YouTube channel) and are a fan of the overarching Star Wars mythology, then strap yourselves in for some interesting additions to the canon of that galaxy far, far away. Here are a couple of key moments from Seasons 1 and 2 that add some more excitement to the overall storyline.
