The Acolyte Is Reportedly Releasing This Summer

A new report has surfaced and it seems Disney/ Lucasfilm is set to resume new Star Wars content as The Acolyte will reportedly release this summer. Not only does it end the Star Wars slowdown but The Acolyte gives fans the first look at The High Republic era content.

The Acolyte is said to be a mystery-thriller that will take fans to emerging powers of the dark side. Star Wars fans have long wanted to see Darth Bane in live-action and that could very well be the case as the Sith is around during The High Republic timeframe.

The show’s focus will be on a Jedi Master and Padawan investigating the coming of the dark side of the Force. The High Republic takes place 100 years before the events of Star Wars Episode I, The Phantom Menace.

While fans are clamoring for Darth Bane it should be noted that the main villain could be another fan favorite Darth Plagueis was about 115 when he was killed by Darth Sidious.

Another fan favorite is alive during this era of Star Wars, Jedi Master Yoda. Will he make an appearance? The great Jedi very well could and it should be to the surprise of no one if he does.

Early reports from insiders (not affiliated) with Disney/ Lucasfilm suggest that The Acolyte is very solid and promising. They say it is as good as Andor which is the best Disney/Lucasfilm streaming show to date. So for insiders to say The Acolyte is as solid as Andor should not be ignored.

It was somewhat surprising when news broke The Acolyte would release this summer as many thought it would be in later 2024. Will it live up to early hype the way Andor lived up to its early hype? That remains to be seen.
