I had the chance to watch all the episodes of #TalesOfTheJedi. It is an absolute joy to watch. This is an incredible series expanding on the stories of Ahsoka and Dooku with a mesmerizing animation. Dave Filoni proves once again that he is a master at Star Wars. pic.twitter.com/IYMRoirm6S

#TalesOfTheJedi brings an emotional blast to the past that fills in some exciting blanks in the prequel trilogy. Short enough to make for an easy watch while providing intriguing new details about two key players from both sides of the Force. A must-see for Star Wars fans! pic.twitter.com/9Esn92Jar8

My opinion might be a tad biased here, but hear me out… #TalesOfTheJedi is really, REALLY good Star Wars.
Like, really good.
Did I say it was good? Ok. Good.

Had a chance to watch #TalesOfTheJedi and am incredibly happen to confirm the shorts all whip great amounts of ass. One short in particular did everything I’d hoped with a certain diminutive character, but all of them brought a surprising amount of depth & emotion. pic.twitter.com/BFZjv8iUNX

I cried in four out of six episodes. Some of the tears made sense, others did not. Regardless the animation and music in this show soar and no words are wasted. We’ve been looking forward to this for quite some time and it did not disappoint in the slightest ✨#TalesOfTheJedi https://t.co/iDk5Vg7B1G

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.
