"The entire creative team that put so much heart and soul into this series is incredibly honored to be recognized with two Children's & Family Emmy Awards," says Lucasfilm's James Waugh, SVP, franchise content and strategy. “We could not be more proud of the incredibly talented artists and craftspeople that have made the show so special. When we first started working on Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures with Michael Olson in 2019, executive producers Josh Rimes, Jacqui Lopez, and I were thrilled to also partner with Wild Canary and Icon Creative, two of the best animation studios in this industry. These two Emmys are a testament to an incredible team that came together across studios to make this show. It reflects their hard work, passion, and dedication to making each episode a heartfelt, visually stunning experience, one that honors the commitment to excellence in storytelling that is so synonymous with the Star Wars galaxy. To the Television Academy, and to the Star Wars fans who have embraced this series, and its characters, thank you."
The series received five nominations in total, including Outstanding Pre-School Animated Series, Outstanding Music Direction and Composition for an Animated Program, and Outstanding Main Title. Set 200 years before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and during the High Republic era, Young Jedi Adventures follows Jedi younglings as they study the ways of the Force, explore the galaxy, help citizens and creatures in need, and learn valuable skills needed to become Jedi along the way. More episodes from Season 1 are on the way in 2024.
