When Does Tales of the Empire Premiere on Disney+?

All six episodes of Tales of the Empire will debut on Disney+ on Saturday, May 4, 2024. This marks a break from the Tuesday slot Lucasfilm and Disney+ typically reserve for shows set in a galaxy far, far away. That said, it’s also consistent with both the production company and streaming platform making a big deal of May 4, which many fans celebrate as “Star Wars Day.” (It’s a play on “May the Force Be With You” – geddit?)

Other animated Star Wars productions that dropped on May 4 include The Bad Batch Season 1, Young Jedi Adventures Season 1, and Star Wars: Visions Season 2. Whether Lucasfilm and Disney have anything else special planned for Star Wars Day is unclear for now, although it seems likely. We may even get a sneak peek at high-profile projects such as The Acolyte, The Mandalorian & Grogu, and Skeleton Crew. This is pure speculation for now, though.

What Is Star Wars: Tales of the Empire About?

Plenty of shadowy shenanigans, if the official Tales of the Empire synopsis is anything to go by. Check it out below.
