Star Wars: The Acolyte

Star Wars: The Acolyte


Get ready for a doozy, because we're going back in time. Set around a hundred years before the Skywalker storyline, The Acolyte exists in the most un-talked about era in the Star Wars timeline: The High Republic Era. Though it takes place around 100 years after the initial Phases II & III of The High Republic, the tale is told through the lens of a mystery-thriller as a woman named Mae, a former Padawan (played by Amandla Stenberg), reconnects with her Jedi Master, Sol (played by Lee Jung-jae), in hopes to solve a number of unruly, rather sinister crimes. 

While nobody knows too much about the series, that's probably the most exciting part. As mentioned, The High Republic Era is an era in the Star Wars franchise that's talked about, but not in as much depth as fans wish. The time period is cast with a shadowy sense of intrigue that we as fans are anticipating heavily to learn more about.

Looking forward to it all? We are, too. Learn how to watch The Acolyte below.
