Dave Filoni shared the first details about the upcoming Tales of the Jedi series at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim.
Tales of the Jedi was finally confirmed ahead of its Star Wars Celebration panel with Dave Filoni after a Lucasfilm package featured the upcoming show’s logo. Before the panel, we already knew the mysterious animated series would be an anthology.
More Count Dooku and Ahsoka!
Dave Filoni opened up some more about Tales of the Jedi during its panel at Star Wars Celebration on Saturday. Filoni revealed the series would contain two separate, three-episode stories that will arrive on Disney Plus in the fall. One arc will follow Ahsoka, and the other will see Count Dooku fall to the dark side.
During the panel, Dave Filoni debuted the first episode of the series, which featured the birth of Ahsoka and put the focus on her mother, voiced by Battlefront II‘s Janina Gavankar. It was also revealed that Liam Neeson and his son would voice a young Qui-Gon Jinn in the episodes following Dooku.
Along with all the new information, a trailer was also shown to the audience, which teased a fight between Dooku and Yaddle, a new Inquisitor, Attack of the Clones-era Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin training a young Ahsoka, and other exciting visuals. In addition to Tales of the Jedi, another season of Star Wars: Visions was confirmed at Celebration in a panel looking back at the first season. Other countries will be involved with the next volume of Visions as well.
Here is the synopsis for the latest animated series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch:
The series follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch — a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill, which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.
The animated series is executive produced by Dave Filoni, Athena Portillo, Brad Rau, and Jennifer Corbett, with Carrie Beck as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as producer. Rau is also serving as supervising director, with Corbett as head writer. Dee Bradley Baker is behind the voices of Clone Force 99, and Michelle Ang is the voice of Omega.
