On October 1, the Disney Channel aired a Star Wars: Forces of Destiny 30-minute special which featured select episodes from Star Wars: Forces of Destiny Season 1 as well as some new episodes. Before I spotlight the new episodes, let’s take a look at some of the new Forces of Destiny merchandise that’s been released in the last few weeks.
I’m really loving the variety of merchandise coming out. Now if they could only make these awesome shirts in adult sizes…
Moving onto the new episodes:
This was my favorite new episode because it stars Ketsu, a friend of Sabine’s who is considering joining the Rebellion. The pair are on a mission to pick up some food deliveries when they run across some storm troopers and a young stowaway.
John Boyega’s Finn joins Daisy Ridley’s Rey in this episode set before the group reaches Maz’s castle in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Though Harrison Ford doesn’t resume his role of “old” Han Solo, voice actor Kiff VandenHeuvel does a great job.
“The Starfighter Stunt”
This episode is a Padme and Ahsoka team up. Ahsoka has been helping Padme improve her flying skills, but when the pair are attacked by a droid ship, Padme must use all she’s learned to survive. It’s so wonderful to see Padme in this series again. Cat Taber does an amazing job voicing the character.
“Teach You, I Will”
Ahsoka is one of a small group of Jedi Padawans that uses two lightsabers. In this episode, we see Ahsoka being trained by Anakin on how to use the second blade with limited success. When Yoda comes to see Ahsoka’s proficiency, he helps her to unlock a new skill. I’ll confess to not really liking Anakin’s look in the FOS series, but I loved these moments that showed them working together.
This was another batch of solid episodes, I’m so excited to see what comes next!
