The Acolyte is described as “a mystery-thriller that will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic era.” The High Republic is set 100 years before the Skywalker Saga begins.

Steinberg plays a former Padawan and dangerous warrior who is hunting down and killing Jedi. In the story, “An investigation into a shocking crime spree pits a respected Jedi Master (Lee Jung-jae) against a dangerous warrior from his past (Stenberg).

“As more clues emerge, they travel down a dark path where sinister forces reveal all is not what it seems….”

Showrunner Leslye Headland promises that The Acolyte will be “packed” with nods to pretty much every era in Star Wars.

The series also stars Amandla Steinberg, Lee Jung-jae, Manny Jacinto, Jodie Turner-Smith, Rebecca Henderson, Charlie Barnett, Dean-Charles Chapman, Carrie-Anne Moss, Margarita Levieva, Joonas Suotamo, and Amy Tsang.

The Acolyte will consist of eight episodes with Headland, Garcia Lopez, and Kogonada directing. It’s set to premiere on June 4, 2024, on Disney+.
