Star Wars The Acolyte: the series on the Sith welcomes a star of Matrix

Given that we have had the right to several series on the jedi including Ahsoka which should be released in 2023, it is the turn of the sith to have the right to a spotlight with Star Wars The Acolyte. This new creation should focus on the sith and take place during the High Republic, somewhere between -300 and -100 before the Battle of Yavin. The plot of this series revolves around a criminal investigation led by a Jedi master and his former padawan who will quickly discover that the origin of the crimes is much darker than expected.

Actress Carrie-Anne Moss will star in the series.

Good news the production of Star Wars The Acolyte has just debuted and it’s a great opportunity to showcase the nearly complete cast. As announced by the very serious newspaper Varietythe series will feature:

  • Amandla Stenberg (Hunger Games)
  • Lee Jung-jae (Squid Game)
  • Manny Jacinto (Nine Perfect Strangers)
  • Dafne Keen (His Dark Materials)
  • Jodie Turner-Smith ( Queen & Slim)
  • Rebecca Henderson (Inventing Anna)
  • Charlie Barnett (Russian doll)
  • Dean Charles Chapman (1917)
  • Carrie Anne Moss (The Matrix).

We obviously don’t know what role each of the actors will play and we don’t know either if this new series will also be an opportunity to meet known characters like Yoda. For the rest of the personalities, Leslye Headland is the showrunner and executive producer and she will also direct the first episode. Kathleen Kennedy, Simon Emanuel, Jeff F. King and Jason Micallef are executive producers.

All that remains is to wait a few months to have other information to get your teeth into, with why not a first teaser at the start of 2023.
