Jedi-Bibliothek has found on German TV listing the titles and synopsis of two new Forces of Destiny episodes that will be airing this October. Previous reports said there would be 8 more episodes this October but here it seems there’ll be more than expected as those episodes are listed as 9 and 10. They are schedule for October 21 and 22 in Germany meaning that they will premiere on the Disney youtube channel before that date. I would probably guess that we would get these episodes mid-October or beginning of that month.
Episode 9: “Newest Recruit”
Sabine hopes to convince the former bounty hunter Ketsu to join the Rebellion but the mission turns out to be much more complex than originally planned.
Episode 10: “The Starfighter Hunt”
When Ashoka teaches Padmé to fly a starfighter, they are attacked by a droid starfighter, and Padmé must immediately put what they’ve learned into action.
It’s great to see that Ahsoka and Padmé will team up once again. However, this episode seems to be problematic as Padmé already knows how to fly, in Attack of the Clones, she piloted a Naboo starfighter in the opening of the movie and later she also fly a Naboo yatch during The Clone Wars. But Forces of Destiny are small fun adventures that are here to show the heroism in everyday life, to inspire so it’s not too much a big deal if there are some inaccuracies in it.
The next eight episodes of Forces of Destiny will arrive this October as we had reported previously, following the same process of release as the first episodes. And now, CollectorsCantina on Twitter have learned at HasbroCon that more episodes will arrive in 2018! The future is looking bright for Forces of Destiny. We will be posting when more information will be known about the upcoming episodes.
The final shorts of Forces of Destiny for this Summer have been released. “The Stranger” and “Bounty of Trouble” both take place on Garei. In the first one, Jyn Erso helps a girl and her tooka who are bullied by stormtroopers. And in the second one, Leia gives an imperial data tape to Sabine while the two are attacked by the bounty hunter IG-88.
Forces of Destiny will be back this October with 8 more episodes that will be released the same way. One of the new shorts will feature an adventure with Rey and Finn. We also know that there will be at least a short featuring Hera Syndulla and another featuring Ketsu Onyo.
It’s finally time for the Padmé Amidala short! It also features Ahsoka Tano and the bounty hunter Cato Parasitti. Just like the Ahsoka short, it brings a lot of feels from The Clone Wars and it’s amazing to get new Padmé stories! Catherine Taber reprises her role of the senator of Naboo and as usual she’s doing a great work.
Enjoy this episode!
Today’s episode of Forces of Destiny has just been released! “Beasts of Echo Base” takes place some time before Empire Strikes Back and features Leia, R2-D2 and Chewbacca encountering a Wampa!
We got an Ahsoka short today! “The Padawan Path” definitely brings feels from The Clone Wars with Ashley Eckstein, Matt Lanter and Tom Kane back in their respective roles of Ahsoka, Anakin and Yoda. In this episode, Ahsoka gets to save a family from a dysfunctional droid and gets her longer padawan braid.
One thing I will say about this episode is Anakin doesn’t look like Anakin and doesn’t even have his scar, which is disappointing, considering he is my favorite character of the saga. The Clone Wars will always have the best animation design for the character. Other than that, I think it’s a beautiful episode and getting to see stories told in the clone wars era is just wonderful!
It’s time for the third episode of Forces of Destiny! This one is called “Ewok Escape” and focuses on Leia. It takes place during Return of the Jedi after Leia met Wicket and tells a little adventure with these two characters. Enjoy!
