Looking for some new Star Wars content to keep you busy until Solo is out? If so, you’ll be pleased to hear that Star Wars: Forces of Destiny will be back on Monday, March 19, with not one but EIGHT brand new episodes featuring our favourite heroines (and heroes) from that galaxy far, far away.
Clone Wars veterans Ahsoka Tano, Padmé Amidala, and Anakin Skywalker are among the characters returning for this new season of Forces of Destiny along with other fan favourites, such as Princess Leia, Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren of Star Wars Rebels, Rogue One’s Jyn Erso, and Maz Kanata, Rey, and Finn from the sequel trilogy. And porgs. Many, many porgs.
Mark Hamill and Kelly Marie Tran will be joining the cast of the popular animated micro-series, reprising their roles as Luke Skywalker and Rose Tico for their respective shorts, “The Path Ahead” and “Shuttle Shock”.
- “Hasty Departure” – Hera and Sabine liberate an Imperial shuttle only to find they have unexpected cargo – troopers!

- “Shuttle Shock” – On their approach to Canto Bight, Finn and Rose learn to work together to navigate a pod of dangerous creatures.
- “Jyn’s Trade” – Jyn helps a young thief learn a valuable lesson.
- “Run Rey Run” – While scavenging inside a Star Destroyer, Rey is cornered by competition on the hunt for a valuable part.
- “Bounty Hunted” –Maz Kanata helps Leia, Chewbacca and R2-D2 with a clever plan to free Han from Jabba the Hutt.
- “The Path Ahead” – Training with Master Yoda in the swamps of Dagobah, Luke learns an important lesson.
- “Porg Problems” – Rey has her training interrupted by some very mischievous porgs.
All eight episodes will be available on Disney’s Youtube channel and Disney.com as from Monday, March 19, and will be aired as part of a TV special on the Disney Channel on Monday, March 25, at 9:50 ET/PT.
