 ‘Star Wars: Tales of the Empire’: Release Date and How to Watch From Anywhere

If you enjoy all things Star Wars, Disney Plus is adding to its assortment of franchise TV shows and movies with a follow-up to Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi.

Arriving on Star Wars Day, May the Fourth, Star Wars: Tales of the Empire will comprise six animated shorts and involve a “journey into the fearsome Galactic Empire through the eyes of two warriors on divergent paths, set during different eras,” according to Disney Plus. While its predecessor featured Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku, Tales of the Empire’s subjects are Nightsister Morgan Elsbeth and former Jedi Barriss Offee, per the Star Wars website.

Diana Lee Inosanto will again portray Elsbeth, voicing the character after appearing in live-action shows The Mandalorian and Ahsoka. Similarly, Meredith Salenger will voice Offee after doing so in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The episodes will depict “previously untold events,” with Elsbeth’s portions taking place before The Mandalorian and Offee’s beginning after the season 5 finale of The Clone Wars, where her story left off, according to the Star Wars site

Also among the cast are Rya Kihlstedt as Fourth Sister, Wing T. Chao as Wing, Lars Mikkelsen as Thrawn, Jason Isaacs as the Grand Inquisitor and Matthew Wood as General Grievous. Dave Filoni is the series’ creator, supervising director and an executive producer.

It’s typical for Disney Plus to make new titles available at 12:01 a.m. PT (3:01 a.m. ET), and CNET has reached out to Disney to confirm Tales of the Empire will follow that timing.

Disney Plus starts at $8 a month for the ad-supported version. You can also opt for the ad-free version ($14 a month or $140 a year) or a bundle that packages Disney Plus with other Disney streamers (you can get Disney Plus with Hulu and ESPN Plus or just Hulu). If you have a bundle, you can also watch Hulu titles on Disney Plus. Read more about the streaming service in our review.

How to watch Star Wars: Tales of the Empire from anywhere with a VPN

Perhaps you’re traveling abroad and want to stream Disney Plus while away from home. With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the series from anywhere in the world. There are other good reasons to use a VPN for streaming, too.

A VPN is the best way to encrypt your traffic to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds. Using a VPN is also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network and want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins. Streaming TV can be a bit smoother with a reliable, quality VPN that’s passed our tests and security standards.

You can use a VPN to stream content legally as long as VPNs are allowed in your country and you have a valid subscription to the streaming service you’re using. The US and Canada are among the countries where VPNs are legal, but we advise against streaming or downloading content on illegal torrent sites. We recommend ExpressVPN, but you may opt for another provider from our best list, such as Surfshark or NordVPN.

Follow the VPN provider’s instructions for installation, and choose a country where Star Wars: Tales of the Empire will be streaming on Disney Plus. Before you open the streaming app, make sure you’re connected to your VPN using your selected region. If you want to stream Tales of the Empire on more than one device, it’s possible you’ll need to configure each one to ensure you’re signed in. Go to settings and check your network connections to verify you’re logged in and connected to your VPN account. Now you’re ready to open Disney Plus to stream. 

If you run into issues with streaming, first make sure your VPN is up and running on its encrypted IP address. Double-check that you’ve followed installation instructions correctly and you’ve picked the right geographical area for viewing. If you still encounter connection problems, you may need to reboot your device. Close all apps and windows, restart your device and connect to your VPN first. Note that some streaming services have restrictions on VPN access.
