Star Wars: Forces of Destiny

Disney and Lucasfilm teamed up for a series of animated shorts called "Star Wars: Forces of Destiny" These animated shorts will focus on the female heroes in the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars: Forces of Destiny will encompass a series of animated shorts and merchandise that will focus on a variety of awesome female heroes.

The series will cover multiple Star Wars eras and will feature Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong'o, and Felicity Jones reprising their roles as Rey, Maz Kanata and Jyn Erso respectively. Plus, Star Wars animation veterans Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano), Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker), Tiya Sircar (Sabine Wren) and Vanessa Marhsall (Hera Syndulla) will also be on hand to voice their characters.

I wonder if this was done after so many SJW bullied Kathleen Kennedy because of some BS alt-left issue when they don't even realize that Disney with Star Wars is already doing tons of stuff for female empowerment already. I don't even remember the complain but obviously having two Star Wars films with a female actress as the main character wasn't enough for them, they have to be offended by something. They outright called her misogynistic

If done correctly these shorts could be awesome but that concept art looks ugly and I fear it's only being done for the above reasons and so they can say they are "PC". So I'm not sure what to expect from them since they seem rushed and they're coming out this summer, I'm guessing they're 5 minute shorts or so.

That art style is not very pleasing to the eyes.

The animation reminds me of the DC Nation shorts, so that's a plus in my eyes. I loved those damn things.

The return of the cinematic voice cast is also pretty cool.

Unsurprised by the flack it's getting.

He's trolling.

I wish they'd do a Mon Mothma short. She's always been a mysterious character.

Literally no one is complaining. Stop creating your own narratives.

The animation looks pretty bad, I have to say.

Star Wars: Force of Macromedia Flash. Will the Rebellion act in time to prevent the Empire from unleashing the terrible power of Motion Tween? "This was your father's Gradient Tool..."

There is no Macromedia Flash anymore. It was acquired by Adobe.

man, it's like Disney really wants to beat Mattel at their own game

first, the ****** Descendants with Ever After High
Now Star Wars against DC Superhero Girls.

the Disney/Mattel break up must have been horrible.

Kind of seems like it could be the Disney Princess franchise but for Star Wars. Neat idea I guess, but the style doesn't look good, to me at least. I've seen better Star Wars art on some children's books.

I'm not knocking it. It could be good. Questionable cheap flash animation kind of style... eh. That coupled with the "Why" this exists (which seems particularly reactionary) makes me question it, but not severely. It can exist. Seems odd as an early "go to" for the proto-Disney/Lucas-verse.
