The new Star Wars fiction takes us to the era of the High Republic, which spans from 350 to 50 years before the Skywalkers, positioning itself 100 years before the events seen in ‘The Phantom Menace‘, the first film in the saga that landed again in cinemas to celebrate its 25th anniversary, even achieving record numbers on the Mouse platform. With its premiere set and its number of episodes revealed, We are going to explain what exactly this new series is about.

‘The Acolyte’ is a different Star Wars series: A detective thriller with Jedi and Sith set in the High Republic with a dose of darkness

In ‘The Acolyte‘, as we have already told you in the house of Vandal Random, An investigation into a shocking crime spree pits a respected Jedi Master against each other (Lee Jung-jae) against a dangerous warrior from his past (Amandla Stenberg). As more clues emerge, they will find themselves traveling down a dark path where sinister forces reveal that not everything is as it seems… Star Wars has a luxury cast for this fiction, for which it seems to have bet heavily. Stars such as Amandla Stenberg, Lee Jung-jae, Manny Jacinto, Dafne Keen, Charlie Barnett, Jodie Turner-Smith, Rebecca Henderson, Dean-Charles Chapman, Joonas Suotamo and Carrie-Anne Moss will shine on screen like never before.

‘The Acolyte’ will arrive on Disney+ on June 5 in Spain with a season that promises to be vibrant.

With Dave Filoni as Star Wars’ new lead creative, ‘The Acolyte‘ is going to bet on introducing into its plot a thousand and one references and connections with the expanded universe and the novels and comics that go beyond the original films. That means that the fiction will be a gift for the most veterans of the saga and a good entry point for the most casual viewers. Leslye Headland, showrunner of ‘The Acolyte‘, revealed how he was integrating this content from Star Wars Legends to the official canon of the saga: “There are some little pieces of Star Wars Legends history that I decided to include because I thought it was cool and no one told me I couldn’t“It said. ‘There are a couple of really big ideas from the Expanded Universe that are used both early and later in the series,” it continued.

Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that ‘The Acolyte‘ will present elements never seen in the saga taken directly from the expanded universe, and will be well implemented thanks to the hand of Headland: “The wonderful thing about Leslye is that she knows everything. I mean, she has read many books within the EU. There are little bits that he’s pulling information from for the series that no one has explored yet in film or television.“.”The Acolyte‘ premieres on June 5 on Disney+ Spain.
