The Acolyte is shaping as much as be fairly completely different from the remainder of the reveals within the Disney Plus Star Wars lineup. Every different story is about throughout the Skywalker Saga, although The Acolyte will happen on the tail finish of the High Republic period, and follows a Force-sensitive lady who explores “shadowy secrets and emerging Dark Side powers.”
The collection lately started capturing within the U.Okay., and due to some sneaky long-lens images, we’ve our first photos of the forged:
Here’s Logan‘s Dafne Keen looking like a Dark Side badass:
On the other side of the Force, Squid Game‘s Lee Jung-jae is looking great:
Here’s Game of Thrones‘ Dean-Charles Chapman as a Padawan:
A rough n’ prepared trying Wookiee character (are these forest scenes set on Kashyyyk?):
And lastly a Zabrak character (Darth Maul’s species):
The synopsis payments The Acolyte as: “A former Padawan reunites with her Jedi Master to investigate a series of crimes, but the forces they confront are more sinister than they ever anticipated.” We’re hoping for a brand new perception into the sooner days of galactic historical past when the Jedi are of their prime, whereas the Sith ideology is being uncovered and researched in secret.
Most present Star Wars characters received’t have been born but on this interval, although Yoda can be energetic, and there’s an opportunity we would see a younger Chewbacca. If these forest scenes are certainly on the Wookiee planet of Kashyyyk, we might get one other likelihood to see Chewie’s household, who most notably appeared in The Star Wars Holiday Special.
That’s extensively reviled, although in the event that they needed some fan service, seeing Chewie’s dad Itchy in his prime can be a really enjoyable nod to followers. Let’s hope for extra photographs quickly.
The Acolyte is anticipated to air in 2024 on Disney Plus.
