Disney has unveiled a new trailer for their latest animated series, Star Wars: Tales of the Empire. Fans, get ready—this is the thrilling follow-up to 2022’s Tales of the Jedi that you’ve been waiting for.

Set in the expansive Star Wars: Tales anthology universe, the new series dives deep into the tales of Nightsister Morgan Elsbeth and the enigmatic former Jedi Barriss Offee. This storytelling approach echoes that of Tales of the Jedi, which showcased the journeys of Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku. Tales of the Empire will explore Elsbeth’s dramatic ascent within the Empire as she pursues her quest for revenge, while also unveiling how Offee transforms into one of the feared Imperial Inquisitors.

Diana Lee Inosanto will lend her voice to Elsbeth once again, reprising her role from The Mandalorian and Ahsoka. Meredith Salenger is also back as Offee.

The cast includes Lars Mikkelsen as Thrawn, Matthew Wood as General Grievous, and Jason Isaacs as the Grand Inquisitor, a role recently played by Rupert Friend in the live-action Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Creator Dave Filoni serves as both the supervising director and executive producer, alongside Athena Yvette Portillo and Carrie Beck.

A key ally of Grand Admiral Thrawn, Morgan Elsbeth first appeared in Star Wars Rebels. With Thrawn surviving the fall of the Empire as shown in Ahsoka, his cunning plans are far from over.

During The Clone Wars, Offee infamously framed Ahsoka Tano for a bombing at the Jedi Temple. It was only after Anakin Skywalker captured Offee and she confessed that Tano was exonerated.

Brace yourselves for an epic continuation in Star Wars: Tales of the Empire—where legends rise, fall, and are reborn in the farthest reaches of the galaxy! May the Force be with you as you await this next chapter in the Star Wars saga.
