We have the first two episodes of Forces of Destiny and they’re adorable.
These are very small snippets of moments between Rey and BB-8 on Jakku – presumably between their first meeting and their encounter with Finn.
These snippets are, in a single word, adorable. Rey is adorable. BB-8 is adorable. The animation is well-done in the most adorable way. These are meant to be short, inoffensive, and character-informing short stories. They offer us some emotional moments between these characters that we hadn’t seen before.
There’s also some throwbacks to previous Star Wars moments such as when R2-D2 is swallowed on Degobah and when Luke has his binoculars and looking for Sand People.
Here are the first two episodes.
