Ooooooooh… this is exciting news!

A new animated anthology series has just been announced at Star Wars Celebration that has us very excited.

We heard a while back that a Tales of the Jedi series is coming and now we know it is and what it will be.

Liam Neeson will return to  voice Qui-Gon Jinn in the series which will focus on the prequel era and tell the early stories of, among others, Count Dooku, Mace Windu and Ahsoka Tano – no word on the voice actors on these yet.

It will air this Fall and we expect it to be something similar in format to Star Wars Visions.

Here’s the details we got so far:

  • It is written by Dave Filoni and Charles Murray
  • It will have a total of six episodes total with three for Qui-Gon and three for Ahsoka
  • The series will be light on dialogue and mainly told through visuals.
  • The first episode was shown at Celebration and was called Life and Death and was about an infant Ahsoka on a hunting trip with her mother.
  • Dave Filoni told the crowd that if they didn’t like the episode he would “just put it on a shelf”. We assume he was joking.

UPDATE: Images from the first episode have leaked and baby Ahsoka is adorable. Also, the animation in this looks gorgeous!

UPDATED: The trailer has leaked and, oh, my…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
