For many fans of the original Star Wars trilogy, our only real experience with the mystical Jedi was in Luke Skywalker’s journey to becoming a masterful warrior. But before he did, we had numerous stories about other characters who wielded that power and prestige. Tales of the Jedi is a new animated series, released by Lucasfilm and Lucas Arts, that restores stories from the original trilogy and prequels as well as brings to light new adventures of the Jedi. Tales of the Jedi has already provided viewers with a surprisingly in-depth look into the history of the Jedi Order, following them from their emergence in a chaotic galaxy through a dark period many years later. The series has even begun to explore previously unexplored areas such as Obi-Wan Kenobi’s early life and their involvement with Anakin Skywalker. The story of the Jedi begins with the earliest legends while exploring the reasons behind the rise and fall of the Order itself.

The six-part series will introduce new characters, tell stories about old favorites, and provide an inside look at the Jedi Order. The plots will feature Jedi Knights and their padawans, who apprentice with Jedi Masters. We’ll hear from both sides of the Force good and evil and see how they operate on the battlefield. Also, new sequences will be presented that show the Jedi in their full array of abilities. The first story arc centers on former Padawan Ahsoka Tano, revealing how she tried to resurrect a Jedi order that had fallen into decline. It’s the year before The Phantom Menace and we’ll see how Ahsoka is thrown into a new life as an apprentice to Ngani Zho, the only remaining Jedi master on Tatooine. As she struggles to control her power and identity, she teaches an eager young Anakin Skywalker about the Force. The second story arc will be about Anakin’s early mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi. The show offers a unique glimpse of the Jedi and their place in the Star Wars universe.

If you’re interested in the history of the Jedi and Sith or are looking to learn more about these ancient rivals, Tales of the Jedi is an excellent introduction. It also features plenty of action, so if you like battles and swordplay, this is a great time to indulge yourself. You’ll understand how the fighting style evolves as both sides clash on battlefields across the galaxy.
