Darkness Rises in First Trailer for The Acolyte

As promised, the first trailer for the upcoming Star Wars live-action series, The Acolyte, has arrived; teasing stellar action and looming threats.

Pretty much sense it’s initial announcement, The Acolyte has been among my most anticipated Star Wars things. The promise of a new time period (set in The High Republic), combined with a focus on the Dark Side, and martial arts to boot? It felt like a dream come true.

Now, the first (public) trailer has arrived and it seems like all that hype is justified…and perhaps understated:

In The Acolyte, an investigation into a shocking crime spree pits a respected Jedi Master (Lee Jung-jae) against a dangerous warrior from his past (Amandla Stenberg). As more clues emerge, they travel down a dark path where sinister forces reveal all is not what it seems….

Star Wars: The Acolyte debuts June 4, 2024 exclusively on Disney+.
