FIRST LOOK: Check out the new kids’ Star Wars show: Young Jedi Adventures

February 11th, 2023 by Marc Comments

Looks like this year’s Star Wars Day – May the fourth – will bring us the first Star Wars series to be a) set during The High Republic era and b) to be aimed squarely at pre-schoolers.

The series will feature new characters Kai, Lys, & Nubs, & their friends Nash and RJ-83 who will be under the tutelage of Master Yoda at the Jedi Temple, pictured below.

Set during The High Republic era, Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures follows Younglings as they study the ways of the Force and learn valuable skills needed to become Jedi: compassion, self-discipline, teamwork, patience, and friendship.

While the series is made for the younger Star Wars fans, it will be canon to the wider Star Wars story and because it’s set during the very popular High Republic series, it will undoubtedly have a lot of adult fans watching too… myself among them.

As well as Yoda, it’s likely the show will feature other familiar faces from The High Replublic series.

I love the style of the characters and the animation and will definitely check it out a few times to see if it’s worth watching… knowing Disney, there’ll be something big in the series that makes it essential watching.

See you in front of the telly on May 4th, guys.

There’s also a series of books for your younglings based on the show; all the details can be found here.

Young Jedi Adventures is the first full-length animated Star Wars series created for preschoolers and their families. These original stories will follow younglings as they are swept off into adventures, and start their journeys on the path to becoming Jedi Knights, learning valuable skills for our galaxy and the galaxy far, far away. The Jedi-in-training will tackle topics of compassion, self-discipline, teamwork, patience, and friendship. and This Week! In Star Wars also revealed the premiere date, cast, and new images from the series today.

Young Jedi Adventures will be part of the era known as the High Republic, set centuries before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.

It arrives on Disney+ on May 4th.

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….
