‘Star Wars: The Acolyte’ Rumoured For June 2024 Release

Star Wars: The Acolyte might be coming sooner than you think, as a report from Collider claimed that the series would be released on 5 June 2024 on Disney+. The series was first announced in December 2020, and four years later, it seems The Acolyte is ready to make its debut.

Lucasfilm previously teased that the series would venture into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark side powers in the final days of the High Republic era, following an estranged Padawan and Master duo who reunite to solve a series of crimes. Most notably, showrunner Leslye Headland revealed that The Acolyte would feature more Jedi characters than any Star Wars show, because of the time period the series is set in.

Amandla Stenberg (The Darkest Minds), Lee Jung-Jae (Squid Game), Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix), Rebecca Henderson (Inventing Anna), Manny Jacinto (Nine Perfect Strangers), Dafne Keen (His Dark Materials), Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim), Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll), and Dean-Charles Chapman (1917) are set to star in the series.

Michael Abels, who is known for his work on Get Out, Us, and Nope, is rumoured to be Star Wars: The Acolyte’s composer. The eight-episode series wrapped filming in June 2023, and if the rumours are true, will make its debut just a month after the animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch wraps up its final season.

For now, we’ll just have to wait for Star Wars to confirm the series’ release date, and drop a trailer or two.
