Jedi Master Yaddle is a female version of the same species as Yoda. She first appeared in live-action form as a member of the Jedi Council in 1999’s Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
In “Tales of the Jedi,” each animated story will feature different Jedi from the prequel era, such as Qui-Gon Jinn, Count Dooku and Ahsoka Tano. Liam Neeson will return as Qui-Gon Jinn, the Jedi Master he portrayed in The Phantom Menace, the first of the Star Wars prequel films.
