Tales of the Jedi

Tales of the Jedi – a new series of Star Wars shorts lands on Disney+

Posted Filed under

The animated anthology follows the stories of Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku. 

Back at the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022 in May, a number of animated projects were announced. The first arrives today on Disney+.

Tales of the Jedi is made up of six short films, each running to approximately 15 minutes. Three follow fan favourite Ahsoka Tano from her earliest days, while the others focus on Count Dooku and his apprentice Qui-Gon Jinn when the former was still a Jedi.

The series should fill out some backstory for the popular Ahsoka, who is soon to lead her own live-action series. For Dooku, it’s a chance to learn more about the principled Jedi who turned against the order, and the Republic, to forge his own path.


With Liam Neeson back as Qui-Gon, after his recent Obi-Wan Kenobi cameo, his son Micheál Richardson will play a younger version of the character. Ashely Eckstein will reprise her role as the voice of Ahsoka, with Ian McDiarmid also returning as Darth Sidious.

Other Star Wars animations returnees include Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker, Terrence C. Carson as Mace Windu, James Arnold Taylor as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Dee Bradley Baker playing the clone troopers.

Additionally, Bryce Dallas Howard has revealed that she is voicing the character of Yaddle. We guess it’s not that surprising as the force is strong with the actor/director; she’s helmed episodes of The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett.

We can only guess if there’ll be any connection to a certain other cute member of her and Yoda’s species.


The episodes are titled ‘Life and Death’, ‘Justice’, ‘The Sith Lord’, Practice Makes Perfect’, ‘Coda’ and ‘Choices’.

Dave Filoni writes the first five, with the sixth penned by Charles Murray and Élan Murray. The directors are Nathaniel Villanueva, Saul Ruiz and Charles Murray,

We’re not sure if the show will become an ongoing series or if it’s just a one-off. Either way, there’s no weekly roll out – all six episodes of Tales of the Jedi are available to stream now.
