Ever since 2012, when Disney continued their quest to become a global superpower by purchasing LucasFilm for the low, low price of $4.5 billion-dollars, Star Wars nerds have been full of questions, and Disney hasn’t really been forthcoming with answers. Here we are, roughly six months away from the second installment of the newest Star Wars trilogy, with many inquiries left unanswered.
In April, it was announced that there would be a web-series titled, Star Wars: Forces of Destiny. The series will focus on the female heroes of the Star Wars universe. CinemaBlend recently spoke with writer Jennifer Muro about the new series, and she gave us a better idea of what to expect:
“I think it'll fill in some moments. It's built in small little unseen moments, which will be fun. Fans will get bits and pieces. Younger audiences will get a sense of fun and excitement and adventure, and only some of the older audience would go, 'Oh, this is a cool piece! Oh, that fits in there!' And they'll kind of put some things together, which would be kind of fun for them to experience.”
The first short from the series debuted earlier this week, and it features a story about Rey and BB-8. Also set to be part of the series are Padme Amidala and Princess Leia. These shorts will show how the heroines deal with certain situations, and what makes their characters who they are and how each of them are different, while keeping the overall canon of the Star Wars universe in place.
“There's a lot of character stuff in here and different themes showcase their personalities.”
Star Was: Forces of Destiny will have daily releases on Disney’s Youtube channel.
