Since Wednesday, October 26, Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi airs on Disney+. We were able to watch these six episodes. Overall, we can already say that we had a good time watching this animated series which allows us to follow key moments in the lives of Count Dooku and Ahsoka Tano. Here are 3 good reasons to watch this new production.
Tales of the Jedi tackles the past of two iconic people
This is the great strength of this series: simple and effective short stories. Each episode is in fact a short film of ten to fifteen minutes which allows us to approach a facet of the youth of Count Dooku and Ahsoka Tano.
It was Dave Filoni, one of the great figures of the saga who created the character of Ahsoka Tano, who took charge of the screenplay. He therefore tackles themes that are close to his heart, and in particular the passage of the dark side of Dooku who was once a Jedi master.
Ahsoka and Anakin Skywalker’s relationship is also on the menu. And without revealing too much, we realize that the latter was a pretty tough teacher. In the end, Star Wars fans should find their account as each episode is full of winks. For others, the experience will probably be a little less interesting, but still fun to follow.
A very solid cast for Tales of the Jedi
This is the other great argument that can be given to convince you to watch the series. It is particularly well dubbed with certain actors reprising their roles. Thus, we are pleased to find Liam Neeson in Qui-Gon Jinn, or even Ian McDiarmid in Emperor (Dark Sidious).
The rest of the cast does the job perfectly. Special mention for Corey Burton and his very good interpretation of Count Dooku. We also appreciate Phil Lamarr in Bail Organa, or TC Carson in Mace Windu.
A very inspired artistic direction
Visually, Tales of the Jedi send heavy. If some scenes are not really out of the ordinary, others literally amazed us. Overall, the Lucasfilm Animation teams worked very well.
We expected no less from an already seasoned studio that has already signed excellent series such as Clone Wars Where The Bad Batch. We won’t say more about Tales of the Jedi, but we come out very satisfied with these six episodes. In particular, they make us want to see the continuation of the adventures of Ahsoka Tano who will be entitled to her own dedicated series.
