On June 4, don’t miss the two-episode premiere of Star Wars: The Acolyte, a Star Wars Original series, only on Disney+.

With the debut of the official trailer, an official poster was revealed as well, which you can check out below. The directors for each episode were also revealed and it seems each of the four directors were given two episodes. Showrunner Leslye Headland will direct the first two episodes of the series. I honestly thought she would do more than two, but it will be interesting to see different takes on the show, since this is a new franchise within Star Wars.

  • Leslye Headland: episodes 1-2
  • Kogonada: episodes 3 and 7
  • Alex Garcia Lopez: episodes 4-5
  • Hanelle Culpepper: episodes 6 and 8
