Forces of Destiny will launch in July on Disney's YouTube channel before expanding as a two-part TV special with additional shorts on Disney Channel sometime during the fall.

We can also expect to hear lots of news about Star Wars Rebels season 4, witness the world reveal of Star Wars Battlefront 2, and see what Del Rey and Marvel have planned for Star Wars books and comics.

While many Star Wars fans will be honed in on even the smallest details around The Last Jedi during this year's Star Wars celebration, the franchise has already delivered a big highlight by shining the spotlight of some of its best female characters.

The actors who have portrayed some of the characters will be lending their voices to the new shorts as well, including Daisy Ridley (Rey), Felicity Jones (Jyn Erso), Tiya Sircar (Sabine Wren), and Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano), with Lupita Nyong'o (Maz Kanata) narrating the series.

"Star Wars Forces of Destiny is for anyone who has been inspired by Leia's heroism, Rey's courage or Ahsoka's tenacity", said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm.

The project's goal is to have 270 VR headsets in hospitals all over the country. partnering with the likes of Niagara Cares and Google's VR technology, the program will give hospitalized kids and Star Wars fans an adventure of a lifetime.

In addition to the Star Wars Forces of Destiny animated shorts, a line of accompanying products have also been announced.

The stream will feature coverage of both Thursday's "40 Years of Star Wars" panel, which opens the convention at 11:00 a.m. and Friday's The Last Jedi panel at 11:00 a.m. - during which it's rumored a new trailer for the upcoming film will debut. The combined segment is home to world class teams of app and game developers, licensing and retail experts, a leading retail business (Disney Store), artists and storytellers, and technologists who inspire imaginations around the world. Through its commitment to corporate social responsibility and philanthropy, Hasbro is helping to make the world a better place for children and their families.
