Star Wars fans around the galaxy were hit with a massive surprise today in the reveal that Tales of the Jedi Season 2 is actually going to be Tales of the Empire, and the series is only a month from hitting Disney Plus.

A new trailer and poster were released to celebrate the shocking reveal, so naturally we had to give it a watch to start thinking about what’s in store for the two main characters in Morgan Elsbeth and Barriss Offee.

Head on down below to check out the trailer reaction and trailer without my dumb face next to it, as well as stills and the series synopsis.

About Tales of the Empire

Journey into the fearsome Galactic Empire through the eyes of two warriors on divergent paths — Nightsister Morgan Elsbeth and former Jedi Barriss Offee. Like the first season following Ahsoka Tano and Count DookuTales of the Empire focuses on previously untold events in the lives of the featured characters. The trailer teases that we’ll learn how a young Morgan Elsbeth navigates the expanding Imperial world towards a path of vengeance, while former Jedi Barriss Offee does what she must to survive a rapidly changing galaxy. The choices they make will define their destinies.

The talented voice cast includes Diana Lee Inosanto (Morgan Elsbeth), Meredith Salenger (Barriss Offee), Rya Kihlstedt (Lyn, aka Fourth Sister), Wing T. Chao (Wing), Lars Mikkelsen (Thrawn), Jason Isaacs (Grand Inquisitor) and Matthew Wood (General Grievous).

Dave Filoni created the series, is supervising director and executive producer along with Athena Yvette Portillo and Carrie Beck. Josh Rimes serves as co-executive producer and Alex Spotswood is the senior producer.   


Star Wars: Tales of the Empire arrives May 4, 2024, on Disney+.
