Star Wars Tales of the Jedi

Animated Series ‘Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi’ Recounts Journeys Of Ahsoka & Count Dooku With Qui-Gon Jinn

This year’s Star Wars Celebration has seen an outstanding amount of content revealed for fans to enjoy in the coming months and years. We have more on The Mandalorian, Andor, Ahsoka, and even a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in the form of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. That is not all, of course, with the newly revealed Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi anthology series diving even deeper into the universe.

The animated affair will contain six episodes of original, animated shorts that focus on both Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku at different periods of their lives. Liam Neeson is set to return as Qui-Gon Jinn’s voice as well, with his son, Michael Neeson voicing a younger Jinn.

For Ahsoka Tano, there will be three episodes that showcase her childhood time, the time she spent with Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars, and her facing an Inquisitor following Order 66. On the flip side, Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi will provide us with more insights into Count Dooku’s life as a Jedi before turning to the dark side. Both the older and younger Qui-Gon Jinns will appear in Dooku’s episodes.

If you find the Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi name familiar, you might have read the Dark Horse Comics series that was set in the Old Republic era, which was 4,000 years before the movies. It covered the ancient history of the Jedi and the war with the Sith, but this new animated series will likely take a different slant.

The animated series is scheduled to go live later this Fall, so keep your eyes peeled on Disney+.
