Disney has revealed that the Star Wars Forces of Destiny web series will be returning to Disney’s YouTube channel on March 19th, which is this upcoming Monday. There will be eight new episodes in total to watch, and they will all debut at once on the 19th. Then on March 25th, they will make their debut on TV via the Disney channel. So the web versions will air March 19th at 1pm EST, and then the TV versions will air March 25th at 9:50pm EST, which sounds a bit late for a cartoon, but they’ll have already aired online, so I guess it doesn’t really matter.
Talent from across Star Wars films and TV reprise their roles in these new episodes, so you will hear the voices of the following Star Wars actors: Mark Hamill (Luke), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz), Kelly Marie Tran (Rose), Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Catherine Taber (Padmé) and Matt Lanter (Anakin).
