Lucasfilm proudly announces actor Amanda Stenberg as the lead character for Star Wars: The Acolyte.
The upcoming Star Wars project will be a Disney+ series set a full century prior to the events of The Phantom Menace.
The series promises to depict the galaxy at the peak of the era of the High Republic, when the Jedi were at their strongest and the Sith were believed to have been eradicated from the galaxy.
The series is directed by “Russian Doll” comic-creator Leslye Headland. Not much is known yet about Amanda Stenberg‘s role, but she will be the main character for this upcoming Disney+ series. Leslye Headland is drawing at least in part from Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The High Republic” publishing effort. Announced in February 2020 and launched throughout 2021, the “High Republic” series spans comic books, audio dramas, web series and novels.
There is currently no release date for The Acolyte.The next Star Wars release on Disney+ will be Andor, which stars Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, a role he first played in Rogue One alongside Genevieve O’Reilley as Mon Mothma.
