Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy unveiled Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, a new series of digital shorts and products focusing on the untold stories of some of the universe’s prominent female heroes like Princess Leia, Rey, and Jyn Erso (in the case of the last two, actresses Daisy Ridley and Felicity Jones will return to provide their characters’ voices, and the series will be hosted by Lupita Nyong’o as her Force Awakens character Maaz Kanat). The shorts will also be accompanied by a line of apparel and toys that are being referred to as “adventure figures” to avoid the stigma of “dolls.”
