The all-new animated Star Wars shorts have arrived to share the Force…
The first Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures animated shorts arrive today on StarWarsKids.com and the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, and they’re charming love letters to some of the saga’s greatest moments and icons. Featuring icons like Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Chewbacca. Princess Leia and our beloved R2-D2 and C-3PO the force is truly strong with them.
Developed with the animation studio Titmouse Animation, the shorts have a vibrant, modern look, falling somewhere between manga and a Star Wars Little Golden Book come to life. Each short encapsulates something about a character, their choices, and their path, taking inspiration from specific scenes and amplifying them.
Darth Vader – “Power of the Dark Side”
For Vader, the team wanted him to make a big entrance so we looked no further than the moment at the end of Rogue One. This one was a real balancing act when it came to just how scary or brutal we wanted to depict him, but we stuck to what is true about the character and emphasized his sheer power above all else. Plus, there’s something intoxicating about Vader’s fearsomeness. This short really celebrates his iconic design — his shadow, the red lightsaber, the booming voice — all of which makes him so unforgettable.
If you’re a parent or older sibling who loves Star Wars and want to share it with the younglings in your family, Galaxy of Adventures could be their first step into a larger world
