Rumor has it that Star Wars: The Acolyte will debut on Disney+ in June, and fans have been clamoring for any information surrounding the series. The series takes place at the end of the High Republic Era setting up the Prequel era. Rumors surrounding the series suggest that the show will tell the story of how the Sith rose to power to take control during the Prequel era.

C Magazine has conducted a nice interview with Amandla Stenberg and the actress admitted she’s “been feeling a little more trepidation than I thought” about joining the Star Wars Universe. When last we saw Stenberg, she was decked out in her Padme Amidala outfit from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, showing off her love for the Star Wars franchise.

The article gives us a good deal of insight into the series as confirms that her character, a Jedi Padawan is the “Acolyte” that the name of the series is referring to. She also goes on to give us more insight into the show.

“In the context of the Star Wars universe, it’s a time of great peace, theoretically,” she says of the High Republic era.

“It’s also a time of an institution, and it’s a time in which conceptions around the Force are very strict. And I think what we’re trying to explore within our show is when an institution has a singular conception of how power can be used.”

“We try to provide a lot of different perspectives and answers to that question. The idea is to kind of honor the ethos of Star Wars and ideas around the Force and also challenge them, hopefully harmoniously.”

Star Wars: The Acolyte ventures into uncharted territory, exploring the dark side of the Force in the High Republic era. With an ensemble cast and a compelling storyline, it promises to captivate audiences with its mysterious and thrilling narrative.

The series stars Amandla Stenberg, Lee Jung-jae, Manny Jacinto, Dafne Keen, Charlie Barnett, Jodie Turner-Smith, Rebecca Henderson, Dean-Charles Chapman, Carrie-Anne Moss, Margarita Levieva and Joonas Suotamo.
