Matthew Margeson will score Lucasfilm’s upcoming animated series “Young Jedi Adventures” which is coming soon to Disney Junior and Disney+. Margeson has previously worked on the Kingsman series, Rocketman, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Pam & Tommy, and Eddie the Eagle.
The first full-length animated Star Wars series created for preschoolers, early grade schoolers, 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.
The new series will be part of the era known as the High Republic, set centuries before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and currently being explored in the New York Times bestselling series of books and comics for all ages, Star Wars: The High Republic.
Michael Olson (Puppy Dog Pals) serves as the project’s showrunner and is also executive producing the series with James Waugh (Star Wars: Vision).
Margeson is expected to discuss his work on the series at the 14th annual Behind-the-Music panel, Supersonic, at the San Diego Comic-Con panel that will take place July 21st.
“Young Jedi Adventures” will premiere on Disney Junior and Disney+ in Spring 2023.
