NEW episodes of “Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures” coming to Disney+ and Disney Junior was just announced.
Star Wars themed family TV shows, in my opinion, hold great importance in entertainment and family bonding. By introducing beloved characters, epic adventures, and moral lessons, these shows entertain and serve as a platform for teaching valuable life lessons and fostering meaningful discussions. The themes of friendship, courage, and the battle between good and evil resonate with viewers of all ages, creating a shared experience that strengthens family ties. Star Wars themed family TV shows, such as Young Jedi Adventures, do this by creating stories in a vast universe of imagination, inspiring creativity and sparking the desire for exploration and discovery. Whether through the iconic lightsaber battles, intergalactic conflicts, or heartwarming character relationships, these shows ignite the imaginations of both young and old.
Disney+, Disney Junior and Lucasfilm announced that “Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures” Season 1 continues with six all-new episodes. The new episodes will debut on Disney+ and Disney Junior beginning August 2, 2023, with more episodes to come later this year. In total, “Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures” Season 1 will be a 25-episode run.
Set during The High Republic era, the animated series follows Jedi Younglings as they study the ways of the Force and learn valuable skills needed to become Jedi. The series was recently nominated for a 2023 Television Critics Association Award and was awarded a Common Sense Seal from Common Sense Media, which acknowledges outstanding media that families can enjoy together.
The first seven episodes from the series, which premiered May 4, saw the Younglings train with Master Yoda and Master Zia at the Jedi temple on Tenoo, meet pilot and fast friend Nash Durango, and clash with pirate Taborr Val Dorn. The six new episodes will follow the Younglings as they continue to hone their Force abilities and go on adventures across the galaxy.
“We’ve been thrilled to see a whole new generation fall in love with the Star Wars galaxy through ‘Young Jedi Adventures,’” says James Waugh, series executive producer and senior vice president, franchise content & strategy at Lucasfilm. “We hope to continue delighting younglings, Jedi padawans, and the fans of all ages who have declared themselves #NubsNation, with these new episodes.”
