Disney+ "Star Wars" television series have become cultural sensations, with several of the upcoming shows focusing on storylines that featured heavily in "The Mandalorian.” However, one forthcoming Disney+ series, "The Acolyte," promises to be unlike anything we've seen from the streamer thus far.
"The Acolyte" is set 100 years before "The Phantom Menace," during a remarkably under-explored time period in the franchise's lore. Showrunner Leslye Headland explained, "We're taking a look at the political and personal and spiritual things that came up in a time period that we don't know much about."
Hedlund also noted that the show will be set during a veritable golden age within the "Star Wars" universe when the galaxy was still at peace. She also asserted that the series would be a mystery-thriller, which perhaps indicates that the show will explore how a certain Sith lord came to power shrouded in secrecy.
