Star Wars: The Acolyte Set for Summer Release, Series Composer Revealed

It looks like the next Star Wars live-action series, The Acolyte, has a tentative release date according to a new report.

The Bad Batch returned today for its third, and final season, but if you’re looking forward to Star Wars shows beyond animation, it looks like there’s a date you can pencil in. According to a new report from our buds at Collider, The Acolyte is currently slated for a June 5, 2024 premiere.

This would confirm other rumblings (that we’d heard as well) that Skeleton Crew was pushed back later in the year, with Acolyte debuting first among them. A Summer release window for Acolyte makes a lot of sense, and June would put it just a month after The Bad Batch comes to a close.

Collider cautions that the date is “tentative” at the moment (as with a LOT of things at studios these days), and could potentially change. Considering I’d been hearing a Summer release for Acolyte since last year, I suspect it won’t move much if it does at all.

On top of the release timing, Collider also revealed composer Michael Abels, who frequently collaborates with Jordan Peele, is handling the musical score for the upcoming series.

Acolyte is easily my most anticipated Star Wars show. Set in the latter days of The High Republic and roughly 100 years before the events of The Phantom Menace, there’s a lot of cool territory to be explored here. Couple that with a stellar cast and focus on martial arts action…I’m sold.

Hopefully we’ll get confirmation of the release sooner rather than later. For now, pencil in June 5th for The Acolyte on Disney+!
