More Star Wars animated content is on the way – soon. At Disney’s D23 Expo 2022, Lucasfilm announced that all six episodes of Tales of the Jedi will be released October 26 on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar. Three of the episodes will follow Count Dooku, a Sith Lord who was once a Jedi, while the other three focus on Ahsoka – Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan – intended to serve as the backstory for the upcoming live-action series. . Ahsoka. And we have a Tales of the Jedi trailer. Meanwhile, in January 2023, Star Wars: The Bad Batch returns with its 16-episode second season on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar, kicking off with a two-episode premiere.
The Tales of the Jedi trailer tells the stories of Ahsoka and Master Dooku, with the former being followed from her childhood through her training as a Jedi, while the final day as a Jedi slowly drifting away from his path is depicted. Anakin will naturally feature on Tales of the Jedi, as will what appears to be Mace Windu, played by Samuel L. Jackson in the live-action Star Wars movies. The Tales of the Jedi trailer ends with a menacing Inquisitor facing Ahsoka.
As for Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2, the January 2023 premier confirms the supposed delay. The Bad Batch was supposed to return later in September, but after the Diego Luna-led Andor was pushed back from August to September, fans were concerned that The Bad Batch season 2 was not ready. After all, Disney+ and Lucasfilm wouldn’t want two Star Wars series to collide and take place at the same time. That said, The Bad Batch Season 2 could now drop into The Mandalorian Season 3, which is slated to premiere in February 2023.
Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi arrives October 26 on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar, followed by Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2 on January 4, 2023.
