Consisting of sixteen episodes, it will air online and on television, beginning in July 3, 2017. It will be accompanied by its own toy line and a series of tie-in books.
The first episode, Sands of Jakku, is narrated by Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), in a sequence just after Rey meets BB-8. It shows how Rey is Force-sensitive even before she falls in with the Skywalker gang. -via Uproxx
