Every few months or so LucasFilm announces a new project or series that captures the intrigue of Star Wars fans all around the world and keeps our thirsts for this franchise satiated until the next movie comes out. Well, yesterday, LucasFilm caught Star Wars fans’ attention when they announced a new series of animated shorts (kind of like the Forces of Destiny shorts) that would focus on retelling iconic moments in the films to appeal to a newer audience, the children of our world. It sounded boring, like something I would have no interest in whatsoever…until I saw the trailer. Here it is.
Oh my goodness, this just may be one of the coolest things I have ever seen! The Forces of Destiny shorts were…okay. I mean, they weren’t bad but they still were definitely targeting a younger audience rather than us adults which made the shorts a little underwhelming to watch. I’m sure if I was a child though I would’ve absolutely LOVED it.
