The "Tales of the Jedi" Trailer Teases the Life Stories of Iconic Star Wars Characters
A new animated series is gracing the Star Wars universe, and the official trailer has just dropped at D23. Six original shorts entitled "Tales of the Jedi" are coming to Disney Plus, each one telling the story of a different iconic Jedi — including Anakin Skywalker's former Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, and the power-hungry Sith Lord, Count Dooku. The first season will focus mainly on these two, with each character getting three 15-minute-long episodes devoted to their backstories.
Dave Filoni, the executive producer from "The Mandalorian," is the creator behind the series, working alongside Charles Murray to help the shorts reach their full potential. In addition to "Tales of the Jedi," Filoni also has another Star Wars series coming out next year entitled "Ahsoka," where some of these animated characters will be brought to life.
Until then, read on to find out everything you need to know about "Tales of the Jedi," and get ready to delve even deeper into the galaxy.

"Tales of the Jedi" Plot
Based on the trailer, it seems as though Ahsoka's episodes will focus on her growth, her journey with Skywalker, and her training as a Jedi. Dooku's episodes, on the other hand, will reveal more about his decision to turn to the dark side and everything that led up to this choice. "Two Stories of Fate. One Destiny," reads the trailer. But fans will have to wait until the episodes are released to find out exactly what those stories are.
"Tales of the Jedi" Cast
Most notably, Matt Lanter will voice Anakin Skywalker, Ashley Eckstein will play Ahsoka, and Corey Burton will take on the role of Count Dooku. The rest of the "Tales of the Jedi" vocal cast will include Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn and Janina Gavankar as Pav-ti, Ahsoka's mother. Other characters you may recognize throughout the six shorts are Bail Organa, Mace Windu, Yaddle, and Ponda Baba.
"Tales of the Jedi" Release Date
The wait is almost over! All six shorts will be available to stream on Disney Plus starting Oct. 26.
