The Acolyte Video Unveils Behind-the-Scenes Look at Star Wars Prequel

Disney+ has dropped another The Acolyte video for its highly-anticipated prequel series, which will take place before the events of George Lucas’ Star Wars prequel film trilogy.

The video unveils a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming Disney+ series, highlighting the cast’s martial arts-like lightsaber training. It also continues to tease Amandla Stenberg‘s mysterious role, who is seemingly involved in the death of a Jedi. The series officially debuts on June 4 with the first two episodes.

Check out the new Star Wars: The Acolyte video below

Who’s involved in The Acolyte?

Star Wars: The Acolyte is written and executive produced by Leslye Headland (Russian Doll), who will also be serving as the showrunner. Joining Stenberg and Lee Jung-jae are Dafne Keen (His Dark Materials), Rebecca Henderson (Inventing Anna), Dean-Charles Chapman (1917), Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix), Manny Jacinto (The Good Place), Jodie Turner-Smith (After Yang), Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll), and Star Wars sequel trilogy alum Joonas Suotama as a new character in the form of a Wookiee Jedi master.

The Acolyte is described as a mystery-thriller that will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers that will be set within the final days of the High Republic era. In addition to The Acolyte, Lucasfilm is also working on other Star Wars projects, including shows like Skeleton Crew, Andor Season 2 and Ahsoka Season 2.
