Luke Skywalker may be gone after the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but Season 2 of Star Wars: Forces of Destiny has Mark Hamill voicing the younger Luke as he trains with Yoda on Dagobah in "The Path Ahead". 

It's shorts like this that make Forces of Destiny special. Averaging two minutes each, the eight episodes travel from Coruscant to Ahch-To to share moments that amuse, inspire, and even explain how certain events came to pass.

The best example comes is "Bounty Hunted," in which Leia and Chewie go to Ord Mantell in search of a way to rescue Han Solo from his carbonite prison in Jabba's palace. Enter Maz Kanata. 

What follows answers how Leia became Boushh and likely how she had the reputation to be welcome at Jabba's. Plus, there's a perfectly adorable moment between Maz and her boyfriend Chewie.

Other episodes give hints about who else may have known about Padme and Anakin's real relationship, what sort of flight Finn and Rose had on the way to Canto Bight, and just how Rey may have learned to lift all those rocks in The Last Jedi.

Part of us is also curious if the shuttle in "Hasty Departure" is the same shuttle in Return of the Jedi. It's possible, right?

You can watch all eight episodes now on YouTube.
