A brand new report from Collider is saying that Leslye Headland’s highly-anticipated Star Wars sequence The Acolyte will probably be popping out this summer season on Disney Plus.
This isn’t precisely shocking, since this was considered the earliest the present might be prepared given its May 2023 wrap and the necessary year-long post-production course of. That being stated, we suspected The Acolyte could be popping out earlier than Skeleton Crew, which might in all probability come out within the fall, so if true, this might undoubtedly verify that hypothesis.
A trailer for the sequence was proven at Star Wars Celebration final yr, however it can virtually definitely not be the one that’s finally launched to the general public, as soon as Lucasfilm’s advertising and marketing will get rolling. Looking at previous examples, Obi-Wan Kenobi got here out in late May and launched its first trailer in early March, round a month after they confirmed the discharge date. Ahsoka got here out in August, and so they launched the primary trailer at Celebration, at the start of April. (That might be checked out as an exception, although, since they might have waited a number of extra weeks if there was no conference.)
Here is the official synopsis of the sequence, which is about 100 years earlier than The Phantom Menace:
Star Wars: The Acolyte is a mystery-thriller that can take viewers right into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and techniques and rising dark-side powers within the ultimate days of the High Republic period. A former Padawan reunites together with her Jedi Master to analyze a sequence of crimes, however the forces they confront are extra sinister than they ever anticipated.
Leslye Headland is the showrunner, govt producer, and one of many administrators of The Acolyte. The story is more likely to function largely all-new characters, aside from publishing fan-favorite Vernestra Rwoh, performed by Rebecca Henderson (the extent of her function remains to be unknown). Amandla Stenberg and Lee Jung-jae are the leads.

However, fantasy motion pictures aren’t his solely cup of tea, as motion pictures from Scorsese, Fincher, Kubrick or Hitchcock have been an obsession for him since he began to grasp the language of filmmaking.
