Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi is an upcoming anthology of original animated shorts headed to Disney+ this Fall that will not only tell stories of Ahsoka and Count Dooku at different parts of their lives, but it will also see Liam Neeson return to voice Qui-Gon Jinn.
Tales of the Jedi was officially revealed at Star Wars Celebration and will consist of six episodes, with three focusing on Ahsoka and the other three focusing on Count Dooku.
Ahsoka’s episodes will be spread across her life and will give glimpses of her childhood days, her time spent with Anakin Skywalker in the Clone War era, and facing an Inquisitor after Order 66.
Count Dooku’s episodes will have a similar format and will focus on a different part of his life as a Jedi before he turned to the dark side. Liam Neeson will appear in Count Dooku’s stories, and the episodes will even feature a younger Qui-Gon Jinn that was voiced by Liam Neeson’s son, Michael.
As noted by IGN alum and Fandom managing editor Eric Goldman shared that one of Ahsoka’s episodes – ‘Life and Death’ – was shown at the panel and showed Ahsoka’s very early life with her parents. It ran about 15 minutes, and Star Wars Battlefront 2’s Janina Gavankar will play her mother.
Star Wars: Every Jedi and Every Sith Ever
Tales of the Jedi was a Dark Horse Comics series that explored the ancient history of the Jedi Order and their war with the Sith. The original was set 4,000 years before the era of the movies, so this series look to stray from that but still explore the past of the Jedi.
This Tales of the Jedi news was just one of the many reveals at Star Wars Celebration so far, and joins the release date and first trailer of Star Wars’ Andor, the announcement of Star Wars: Skeleton Crew with Jude Law, the official teaser trailer of Willow, the first image from Indiana Jones 5, and the confirmation that the third season of The Mandalorian and the premiere of Ahsoka will arrive in 2023.
