The Acolyte Trailer Reveals the New Star Wars Series

Disney+ has revealed the official trailer for the Star Wars series The Acolyte, which will begin streaming on the service on June 4, 2024, with two episodes. The show is set during the High Republic era and the prime of the Jedi Order.

In The Acolyte, an investigation into a shocking crime spree pits a respected Jedi Master (Lee Jung-jae) against a dangerous warrior from his past (Amandla Stenberg). As more clues emerge, they travel down a dark path where sinister forces reveal that everything is not what it seems…

The trailer opens with younglings in training, listening to the words of Lee Jung-jae’s Master Sol. “Close your eyes. Your eyes can deceive you,” he tells them. “We must not trust them.”

We then get a flurry of thrilling images: a crowded village, a cantina clash between Carrie-Anne Moss’s Master Indara and a knife-wielding attacker, and finally, Jedi charging an unseen, red-bladed-lightsaber-throwing assailant.
