This August, Disney is releasing some brand new episodes of the animated series, “Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures” on Disney+. Recently, Disney sent me a box of goodies featuring merchandise from brands such as LEGO, Mattel and Hasbro, which are available to purchase now from retailers around the world.
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 first seven episodes from the series, which premiered earlier this year on Star Wars Day, aka May 4th, 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.
