The Acolyte is unlike any of the other new Star Wars TV shows and movies heading to Disney Plus.

Set during The High Republic era – around a century before the events of The Phantom Menace and, later, the Skywalker Saga – it’ll show the Jedi Order at the height of its powers. It’ll also put followers of the Dark Side of the Force front and center of its story, paving the way for Emperor Palpatine’s power grab in the prequel trilogy.
