Star Wars Forces of Destiny Returning October 1 With 30-Minute Special

Disney has released a new trailer for Star Wars Forces of Destiny, which is returning to its channel on October 1 with a 30-minute special. It will then return on October 29 with another 30-minute special.

Considering the length of these specials they’ll feature multiple different short stories throughout their runtime. I don’t see them being full length versions of just one story, which is hinted at in the official press release below. The trailer hints at that too, as it features all of the girls of the Forces of Destiny series, which include: Princess Leia, Ashoka Tano, Sabine Wren, Padme, and Rey. Head on up above to check it out.

From Lucasfilm and Disney

Featuring a total of eight never-before-seen installments, these specials showcase compilations of the popular animated shorts featuring Rey, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia, Ahsoka Tano, Jyn Erso, Hera Syndullah, and PadméAmidala, as well as new episodes including Han Solo, Hera Syndulla, Finn, Maz Kanata and many others.

The first half-hour special debuts SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1(8:00 p.m. ET/PT) followed by the second on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29(8:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Disney Channel and the Disney Channel App.

Developed by Lucasfilm Animation, “Star Wars Forces of Destiny” showcases how choices both big and small shaped the destinies of beloved characters. Talent from across “Star Wars” films and animated TV series reprise their roles – Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o, Felicity Jones, Tiya Sircar, Ashley Eckstein, Vanessa Marshall, Catherine Taber and Matt Lanter among others.

“Star Wars Forces of Destiny” will also continue to be supported by global product extensions, such as Adventure Figures and role-play from Hasbro, apparel exclusive to Target, as well as books and comics from Disney Publishing.

With the first eight installments launching digitally, these new shorts will also launch on Disney YouTube following the Disney Channel specials.
