Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, an upcoming series of original animated shorts set to premiere on Disney+ this Fall, will not only portray the stories of Ahsoka and Count Dooku at various points in their careers but will also include Liam Neeson reprising his role as Qui-Gon Jinn.
Tales of the Jedi will consist of six episodes, three of which will centre on Ahsoka and the other three on Count Dooku, as announced during Star Wars Celebration.
Star Wars: Tale of the Jedi, Episodes Will Spread Across Their Life
Ahsoka’s episodes will cover her complete life, including her childhood, her time with Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars, and her encounter with an Inquisitor after Order 66.
Count Dooku’s episodes will follow a similar pattern, with each episode focusing on a different aspect of his life as a Jedi prior to his conversion to the dark side. Count Dooku’s storylines will involve Liam Neeson, and the episodes will even feature a younger Qui-Gon Jinn, who will be portrayed by Liam Neeson’s son, Michael.
Tales of the Jedi was just one of the many reveals at Star Wars Celebration so far
Tales of the Jedi was a Dark Horse Comics series that chronicled the Jedi Order’s ancient history and conflict with the Sith. The original was set 4,000 years before the events of the films, thus this series will deviate from that while still exploring the Jedi’s background.
This Tales of the Jedi news joins the release date and first trailer for Star Wars’ Andor, the announcement of Star Wars: Skeleton Crew with Jude Law, the official teaser trailer for 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 as part of Star Wars Celebration.
