‘Star Wars: The Acolyte’ Series Announced For Disney Plus

Kathleen Kennedy has just announced the new series from Russian Doll showrunner Leslye Headland. The show is set in the final days of the High Republic era (approx. 200 years before The Phantom Menace) and is mystery-thriller focusing on the emerging dark-side powers.

 

We knew Leslye Headland was developing a series but had no indication of what it was about. This news is both exciting and surprising! The setting gives Headland a lot of creative freedom compared to shows/movies set in the episodes 1-9 eras.

Additionally, exploring the dark side in this period is sure to delve into the gray area of the force, especially since according to the films, the Sith weren’t seen during this time period.
