Disney and Lucasfilm have announced "Star Wars: Galaxy of Stories," a series of kid-focused animated shorts depicting iconic moments from throughout the "Star Wars" saga.

Galaxy of Stories will launch on StarWarsKids.com as well as through the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel. The first six shorts will debut November 30, with new shorts releasing through December and into 2019.

"With Galaxy of Adventures, we wanted to craft something that allowed parents to help their kids take their first step into a much larger world whether they were ready to show their kids the films or wanted to find new ways to explore the content," James Waugh, Lucasfilm's vice president for franchise content and strategy, told StarWars.com. "Over the years, I've had so many of my friends who are parents tell me how much they wanted to introduce their kids to Star Wars but didn't feel that their kids were quite ready for the movies yet. They wanted a way to celebrate the universe they love."
