In light of recent articles, not just on JTA, but also on sites such as Bloomberg, I would like to talk about one more time about Star Wars and kids. According to Bloomberg Star Wars has problems reaching kids. I believe everyone agrees that Star Wars, like any other franchise, needs young fans, not just adults. Lucasfilm has tried various things in recent times to reach kids. Hasbro too, tried several things to get kids to buy or want the toys. Forces of Destiny failed. Resistance has disappointing ratings and will end with season 2, the toyline was cancelled already. And most famously Force Link figures, which were always meant to be played with by kids, were discontinued in favor of an all new 5 inch super articulated Galaxy of Adventures toyline. It remains to be seen if this new line will meet more success. So maybe it’s time to look at how the source material has been doing on YouTube. Is Galaxy of Adventures a success? How does it compare to Forces of Destiny? And how is the latest web series, Star Wars Roll Out doing? Click through for a look at Lucasfilm’s kid oriented entertainment.

A previously unrevealed Forces Of Destiny product has hit eBay, and it’s already going for crazy money. JTA reader Michael F. alerts us to a Padme Amidala based on her Episode I and Episode II outfits. It remains to be seen if this will make it out as Forces Of The Destiny has hit a wall at retail. It’s a beautiful set. Hopefully, it’s waiting in the wings somewhere.
The latest Forces of Destiny episode was released on Friday already – but maybe has flown somewhat under the radar due to some other Star Wars movie being released on that day. Anyway, check out “Triplecross”, it’s a fun episode featuring Qi’Ra, Hondo and IG-88. The ending is somewhat anticlimactic perhaps, but Hondo is fun as usual! Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Forces of Destiny premiered in March 2017 on YouTube on the official Disney Channel. It was a first for Star Wars, since the animated show was primarily targeted at girls. A toyline was launched as well. In this article I want to take a closer look at the YouTube views for each episode and what this might tell us about the popularity and potential future of the show. Also, we will see which characters are fan favorites and which ones not so much. Click through to learn more!

Cancelled Forces Of Destiny figures? Are you crazy? Actually, Entertainment Earth has just relisted Padme with a March 2018 release date now. We have heard that many of these were much too far into progress to just cancel them. Order now if you want her! Hopefully this one won’t get cancelled too!
If you have been having your Forces Of Destiny Princess Leia Organa and R2-D2 set continually cancelled by ToysRUs.com, we have learned right from the source that this retailer is not getting stock. (We’re not entirely sure if that means just onlint or both online and brick and mortar. We just received word that it’s not coming.) If you’re waiting for it, you should probably order it from other sources like GameStop or Entertainment Earth.
