Star Wars has long focused on the male protagonists of the films. And of course there is nothing wrong with that. But now it’s time for the ladies of Star Wars to shine in this new teaser trailer for Star Wars: Forces of Destiny. All of our favorite ladies are back in action!

The animated mini-series will feature canon stories from the galaxy far, far away. The teaser shows us that we’ll go on  adventures with Jyn, Padme, Rey, Ahsoka, Sabine Wren, and of course, Leia. In fact, Leia is the most prolific in this trailer along with Rey. It’s unfortunate our beloved Carrie Fisher couldn’t voice her. The teasers asks us to find our hope, find our courage and to find our destiny.

I’ve said before that I’m not fond of the animation style. It looks a little amateurish with the stiff animation and lack of depth. Which is unfortunate as this is a big step in inclusion for female and especially little girl fans. However, the stories are bound to be great and I’m very excited to see the episodes on YouTube. 

What do you think of the trailer? Will you be watching the episodes when they debut? Let us know. Be sure to check out Forces of Destiny on Disney’s YouTube on July 3rd!
