Disney and Lucasfilm has released the first STAR WARS FORCES OF DESTINY animated short, SANDS OF JAKKU, which features Daisy Ridley voicing Rey and BB-8! Check it out down below!

Developed by Lucasfilm Animation, Star Wars Forces of Destiny remains true to the Star Wars canon, showing how choices both big and small ultimately shape of 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 of Disney Channel in fall 2017. Expect more familiar voices in the series, including Daisy Ridley (Rey), Felicity Jones (Jyn), Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano) and Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata).

Star Wars Forces of Destiny will also be supported by global production extensions, such as books, apparel, bedding and toys– including the new line of ‘Adventure Figures’ created by Hasbro, which bridges the gap between traditional action figures and dolls. Each individually-designed figure features dynamic action, like Rey swinging her lightsaber, along with multiple points of articulation to help recreate the characters’ adventures and heroic moments with different poses.

Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman of Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media said:

“From Princess Leia to Sabine Wren, STAR WARS heroines are unique, and we wanted to represent that in the product line for STAR WARS FORCES OF DESTINY. The result is the creation of our new ‘Adventure Figures’ that celebrate the power and stories of these incredible characters and allow kids to recreate their most heroic moments at home.”
