Ranking the new Star Wars: Forces of Destiny episodes


Star Wars: Forces of Destiny has made a comeback with seven new episodes for fans to enjoy. All of them are great, but which is best?

It really hasn’t been that long since we’ve gotten new episodes of Star Wars: Forces of Destiny. However, the miniseries is back with seven fresh episodes, spanning the entire saga from the prequels to the series to the sequel series.

Of course, we really enjoy all of them, but there’s no way we couldn’t watch these and decide which are the most fun to watch.

So, let’s get right to it.


Forces of Destiny started as a series that highlights the women of the Star Wars universe, and this episode really doesn’t fit that mold — Rey doesn’t appear, as she does in the previous episode featuring porgs. Even though we love this episode because of how cute it is, it seems a bit strange that the only Star Wars characters in it are R2-D2 and Chewbacca.

Just look at that thumbnail, though. How adorable is that?

“Chopper and Friends”

Star Wars Rebels main character Hera Syndulla takes a bit of a backseat in this episode — or the pilot’s seat, as the case turns out to be. But hey, anything that involves Ewoks is something we’re here for, especially when it involves Ewoks shooting at TIE fighters in their very own Ewok way.

“Perilous Pursuit”

Rey and Finn teaming up is not a bad thing, although it’s set during The Force Awakens (since, after all, they don’t really spend much time together in The Last Jedi). It does, however, feature Rey wearing what’s now Finn’s jacket, although it starts life in Star Wars as belonging to Poe.

At least Rey gets to show off her sharp flying skills … and Finn gets to get in some of his trademark snarky lines.

“Art History”

Sabine and Tristan feature in this one, giving Rebels yet more love. Although it’s hard to resist the cuteness of Ewoks, this episode has the funnier lines — “Did you just apologize to a statue?” — and has a deeper meaning, since Sabine has a special connection to the statue in question. It also gets bonus points for letting her show off some of her work with the Darksaber, which originally belonged to, you guessed it, Tarre Vizsla, the statue’s subject.

It also involves the pair killing stormtroopers. This is a kids’ web series, right?

“A Disarming Lesson”

Ahsoka is back in Forces of Destiny, this time taking on Ezra and giving him some practice in the use of the Force. It has some of the best animation in this series so far, for both Ezra’s dodging as well as Ahsoka’s attacks.

“Traps and Tribulations”

Any and all episodes that feature Leia and Luke teaming up are automatically pretty great. This one is made even greater by the fact that Leia gets a chance to use a lightsaber. In the original expanded universe, she used them more frequently, but it really hasn’t popped up in the new canon quite so much. Perhaps Luke’s asking for it back may signal that Leia’s still got a knack for a lightsaber and that we might see her with one of her own in comics or books to come.

Hey, a girl can dream, right?

“Monster Misunderstanding”

Forces of Destiny hasn’t had very many Padmé episodes, but when it does have them, they’re good. Take “Monster Misunderstanding,” for example. Padmé’s still explicitly Queen of Naboo, making this the earliest episode in the timeline — and also illustrating that The Phantom Menace isn’t the only time that she’s willing to get in on the action.
