The latest Star Wars story has arrived. Today marks the debut of Star Wars Forces of Destiny, a series of original animated shorts set in that galaxy far, far away and focusing on the franchise’s roster of female heroes. The first installment, titled “Sands of Jakku,” covers a moment not seen in The Force Awakens: Rey (voiced by Daisy Ridley) and BB-8 must escape a ravenous, metal-craving Nightwatcher worm (which keen-eyed film viewers briefly spotted early on in the film) on their way to Niima Outpost — the place where they eventually meet Finn.

Rey was conspicuously absent in numerous toy sets, perhaps most notably in the initial tie-in version of Monopoly. The disrespect didn’t sit well with fans or with director J.J. Abrams, and though the issue was retroactively rectified, it still shadows the franchise as eyes turn to the marketing of the as-yet-untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017. ...
The two biggest action heroes in the rebooted Star Wars universe have connected.
