Disney has released a new episode of its Star Wars Forces of Destiny series, this one focusing on the character Rey, the android BB-8, and an evil alien trying to harm them. Actress Daisy Ridley from The Force Awakens and this year’s The Last Jedi returns to voice Rey. The new episode is called “Sands of Jakku.”
Forces of Destiny is an original series of animated shorts focusing on a number of the female Star Wars characters, including Rey, Jyn Erso, Princess Leia, Sabine Wren, Padme Amidala, and Ahsoka Tano.
Notably, this is the first time that Ridley is reprising her role as Rey since 2015’s blockbuster smash, The Force Awakens, which made more than $2 billion worldwide. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jyn Erso actress Felicity Jones is set to voice her Rogue One character in a future instalment of Star Wars Forces of Destiny.

The Last Jedi opens in December this year. The film picks up directly where The Force Awakens left off, which is pretty exciting to think about.
