Today begins the first day of the Star Wars Celebration event in Orlando, Florida and Disney has revealed a mini micro-series. Star Wars Forces of Destiny is an original series of animated shorts about 2-3 minutes each and will explore characters including Rey, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia, Ahsoka Tano and others.
The stories will also be supported by a line of toys from Hasbro, including new ‘Adventure Figures’ – a fusion between traditional dolls and action figures, creating a whole new way to play Star Wars. The 11-inch figures will depict characters including Rey, Jyn Erso, Princess Leia, Sabine Wren, plus loveable sidekicks and epic villains like BB-8, Chewbacca, Kylo Ren and much more. Hasbro is also rolling out Star Wars Forces of Destiny role play and accessories—from Rey’s extendable staff, to a new, electronic Jedi Power Lightsaber toy, which is part of the Star Wars Bladebuilders system.
Fans attending Star Wars Celebration in Orlando will see a sneak peek of Star Wars Forces of Destiny during the “Heroines of Star Wars” panel on Friday, April 14. For a first look at the new Star Wars Forces of Destiny Adventure Figures, stop by Hasbro booth #2744.
