We have a new Star Wars movie coming out every year, an ongoing animated series, a constant stream of new novels, and multiple fantastic canonical comics series. You know what this world needs? That’s right, more Star Wars. Disney and Lucasfilm are pumping out a constant stream of new Star Wars stories, and will likely continue until long after we’re all dead. Fortunately, everything they’ve put out so far has been awesome. This latest animated project though might be the coolest.

Ahead of this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration, Disney and Lucasfilm have announced Star Wars Forces of Destiny. It’s a series of two to three-minute animated shorts featuring the coolest, most important women in the galaxy. Each short will bring us new stories about Rey, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia, Ahsoka Tano and others we don’t know about yet. This behind-the-scenes teaser shows off some early drafts of what the series will look like. Even in animatic form, these shorts look pretty cool.

Daisy Ridley, Felicity Jones, and Lupita Nyong’o are reprising their roles as Rey, Jyn Erso, and Maz Kanata, respectively. I’m especially excited to see more of Ahsoka. She was the best part of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and she’s had some great action scenes and emotional moments on Rebels.

The series will be on Disney’s YouTube Channel in July and will air on the Disney Channel in the fall as a two-part event with eight more shorts. And of course, no new Star Wars series wouldn’t be complete without merchandising. According to Deadline, the shorts will be well-represented in the toy world. Hasbro is putting out a new series of action figures and “adventure figures,” which I guess look a little more like dolls than traditional Star Wars toys. Hey, it’s about time we got some cool-looking toys based on the women of Star Wars. At least they can’t forget to make a Rey figure this time.
