Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi (2022) is a brilliant addition to the Star Wars universe. With just six short episodes, it enriches the faraway galaxy in ways that haven’t been seen since the critically acclaimed animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008).

Once again, Disney and Lucasfilm have proven that Star Wars is at its strongest when it’s animated, while its live-action shows, such as The Book of Boba Fett (2021), Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022), and Andor (2022), leave a lot to be desired, and have been quite divisive among fans.

One stand-out episode in Tales of the Jedi is “The Sith Lord”, which properly introduces Yaddle (Bryce Dallas Howard), a Jedi who’s the same species as Jedi Master Yoda and Grogu (AKA Baby Yoda), who had only been seen in Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace (1999).

Yaddle is suspicious of fellow Jedi Master Count Dooku (Corey Burton), who, as we know, winds up becoming the Sith Lord Darth Tyranus. But her investigations lead to her untimely death at the hands of Dooku, thus allowing him to complete his journey to the dark side.

Yaddle has been an instant hit with Star Wars fans — while she meets a dark ending in “The Sith Lord”, she doesn’t go down without a fight. Bryce Dallas Howard also delivers some excellent voice work in bringing the character to life, and it’s great to finally learn a bit more about her.

But will there be a second season of Tales of the Jedi? And if there is, will Yaddle return? Unfortunately, there’s no news about another season just yet, but as the show has been a huge hit on Disney+, it’s very likely more episodes will get commissioned in the near future.

As for Yaddle’s return, this shouldn’t be ruled out, either. After all, Tales of the Jedi is an anthology series, with each episode jumping forward several years and, for the most part, focusing on different characters.

Or maybe we’ll see Yaddle return in live action in a future Star Wars movie or television series.

As per StarWars.com, here’s the official synopsis for Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi:

Two paths and two choices.

Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, a new six-part animated anthology of shorts, has arrived on Disney+. Helmed by supervising director Dave Filoni, the series devotes three episodes each to fan favorites Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku, revealing key moments in their lives and journeys.

The stories range from the birth of Ahsoka and an early experience with her mother, Pav-ti (played by Janina Gavankar, who brought Iden Versio to life in Star Wars Battlefront II), to a mission featuring Dooku — still a Jedi — and his Padawan, Qui-Gon Jinn (voiced by Liam Neeson himself).
