Tales of the Jedi Brings Us Ahsoka Tano’s Origin Story—and Dooku’s Past

It’s still a long time before the live-action Ahsoka show will arrive on Disney+, and the second season of The Bad Batch was just moved to a January 4th release date—but next month, we get a little something to tide us over while we wait for Ahsoka and the clones to return to the spotlight. Tales of the Jedi is an anthology series of six shorts exploring the lives of two key prequel-era Star Wars characters: Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku.

Of course, they won’t be the only beloved Jedi to appear in the series.

Tales of the Jedi comes from The Clone Wars mastermind Dave Filoni, and original Ahsoka voice actor Ashley Eckstein returns to voice the character. You an also hear the dulcet tones of Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn—seen in the trailer as a padawan under his old master, Dooku—and a handful of Clone Wars actors, including Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex and Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker.

Three of the episodes will follow Ahsoka—one includes her origin story, as the trailer makes clear—and three focus on Dooku. Ahsoka is seen here from a baby all the way up to a young woman in the midst of her Jedi training, while Dooku seems to lean harder and harder into control and might.

All six episodes of Tales of the Jedi premiere on Disney+ on October 26.
