Disney has released the second new episode of Star Wars Forces of Destiny, and it takes place during Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In particular, it takes place shortly after Rey and Finn teamed up with Han and Chewie aboard the Millennium Falcon, so after they escape Han’s pursuers on his and Chewie’s cargo ship.
Unkar Plutt had hidden a tracking beacon on the Falcon when it was in his possession, so naturally after Rey and Finn lifted it, it began sending its location to Unkar. If you have watched the deleted scenes from The Force Awakens, then you know that Unkar eventually confronts Rey at Maz’s Palace, so this Forces of Destiny short helps to fill in some plot holes regarding his presence at Maz’s castle. I believe these shorts are canon, so I dig these little peeks behind the curtain if you will at moments that didn’t make the final cut in the films or cartoon shows that these shorts are based on.
Head on up above to see Rey use her technical skills to save Han’s ass. Stay tuned for more Forces of Destiny action as they release.
