A slew of new Star Wars content is coming to Disney+ in the near future, among them the animated series “Tales of the Jedi” and “Young Jedi Adventures.”
Tales of the Jedi
“Tales of the Jedi” is an anthology series comprised of original animated shorts featuring Jedi from the prequel era.
One of the episodes talked about during the show announcement will feature Ahsoka’s origin story, and another will tell the story of Count Dooku, before he became a Sith Lord, and his young Padawan Qui-Gon, who once again will be voiced by Liam Neeson.
“Qui-Gon is one of the best and, in some ways, most interesting Jedi, because of his philosophy, which is different from the Jedi Council,” show creator Dave Filoni said about the episode. “And where did he learn that, if not from his mentor, Count Dooku?”
“Tales of the Jedi” will debut on Disney+ Fall of 2022. This means the Ahsoka origin episode will air before the start of the “Ahsoka” series, which debuts in 2023.
Young Jedi Adventures
The second animated series, “Young Jedi Adventures,” will follow Younglings as they learn the ways of the Force to become fearless Jedi Knights. The young Jedi-in-training will tackle topics of compassion, self-discipline, teamwork, patience, and friendship.
The first full-length animated Star Wars series created for preschoolers, early grade schoolers, and their families, it will be set during The High Republic Era (roughly 200 years before the events of “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,” and 800 years after the fall of the “Old Republic”).
This series will air on both Disney+ and the Disney Junior channel in Spring 2023.
Both series were announced during the “Star Wars Celebration” held in Anaheim this past weekend that also revealed news about other Star Wars and LucasFilm projects like “Andor,” “Skeleton Crew,” “The Mandalorian,” “Star Wars: The Bad Batch,” “Star Wars: Visions,” “Willow,” and “Indiana Jones 5.”
