‘Tales of the Jedi’ reviews are in, and critics say it’s a must-watch for ‘Star Wars’ fans

It's far surpassed critics' expectations.

The full season of Tales of the Jedi has just dropped on Disney Plus, comprising six episodes of between 10 and 20 minutes each. These are a deep dive into the backstories of some of the most important Jedi in the franchise, with episodes exploring the never-before-seen pasts of Ahsoka Tano, Qui-Gon Jinn, Count Dooku, Mace Windu, and uh, Yaddle (she’s back!).

The CG-animated Star Wars shows are often unfairly dismissed as being aimed at younger viewers, but the review embargo has just lifted and critics seem to agree that this is must-watch TV for any Star Wars fan.

Slashfilm calls it “stunning”:

Just put Dave Filoni in charge of Lucasfilm already:

Another five star rating:

We love the Count Dooku episodes too:

It’s better than many assumed it would be:

It seems that Tales of the Jedi will go down as one of the best CG animated shows in Star Wars. We’re eagerly waiting on the Rotten Tomatoes score, but it should be noted that a few hours after it was released it’s already sitting on a perfect 100 percent audience rating.

After these episodes, we’re hoping Tales of the Jedi isn’t limited to a single season. There’s a wealth of untold stories about Jedi out there we’d love to delve into. Let’s hope the Lucasfilm story group has all this planned out. This project has a ridiculous amount of potential given how many Jedi were active around the time of the prequel trilogy.

So c’mon, where’s our Kit Fisto, Plo Kloon, and Ki-Adi Mundi episodes?
