Tales of the Jedi Ahsoka

The Star Wars TV universe continues to expand.

Tales of the Jedi — an anthology of animated shorts featuring Jedi from the prequel era — will stream this fall on Disney+. Three of the first episodes will chronicle the origins of Ahsoka Tano, it was announced at Star Wars Celebration, while another three will focus on Count Dooku.

Additionally, Young Jedi Adventures, the first full-length animated Star Wars series created for preschoolers and early grade schoolers, is coming to Disney+ and Disney Junior in Spring 2023. These original stories will follow Younglings “as they are swept off into adventures and start their journeys on the path to becoming Jedi Knights,” learning valuable skills along the way.
