Tales Of The Jedi To Focus On Ahsoka, Younger Count Dooku
While the Star Wars prequels initially struggled to gain traction with fans, the Clone Wars animated series has reframed them, adding depth and development to many of the trilogy's new characters. Continuing that trend is Tales of the Jedi, a six-episode anthology that will follow fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano, and a not-yet-evil Dooku.
Disney and Lucasfilm revealed the first trailer for the anthology at D23 Expo today. Three episodes will focus on Ahsoka, and then three will follow Dooku. This is a much younger Dooku than we've previously seen--characters refer to him as Master Dooku rather than Count.
The show will feature the visual style of the Clone Wars and Rebels animated TV series, though with what looks to be higher-quality 3D rendering. The short trailer features a bunch of characters in their younger days, including not just Dooku himself but also Mace Windu, Qui-Gon Jinn, Yoda, and more. Ahsoka appears as a young child, and it seems like the show may show us her earliest days with the Force.
All six episodes of Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi hit Disney+ on October 26, 2022. Previews and announcements for lots more Star Wars and Marvel shows, like a new trailer for the upcoming Andor series, and movies are on the way, so keep an eye on our running list of everything Disney shows off for the two studios.
