If the Force is with you, then chances are, you are all over this. If not, buckle up, because Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi is here!
Two paths and two choices. Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, a new six-part animated anthology of shorts, has arrived on Disney+. Helmed by supervising director Dave Filoni, (The Mandalorian, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars) the series devotes three episodes each to fan favorites Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku, revealing key moments in their lives and journeys.
The stories range from the birth of Ahsoka and an early experience with her mother, Pav-ti (played by Janina Gavankar, who brought Iden Versio to life in Star Wars Battlefront II), to a mission featuring Dooku — still a Jedi — and his Padawan, Qui-Gon Jinn (voiced by Liam Neeson himself).
The animated anthology of shorts is now streaming on Disney+ and if it’s as good as The Clone Wars, then there is alot for Padawans to look forward to.

At a recent Star Wars Celebration, Filoni described Tales of the Jedi as “Two paths and two choices” — a comparison of contrasts in particular of Ahsoka and Dooku’s decisions and overall journey. A longtime Star Wars fan who is most definitely living his dream, Filoni has likened these episodes as “tone poems,” acknowledging the continuing influence of George Lucas. “It’s the mentor relationship…now it’s our job to take care of it and to further it in ways that are exciting for the next generation.”
