NEW Set Photos from Star Wars: The Acolyte Disney+ Series
New details are emerging on Star Wars: The Acolyte Disney+ series!
Set 100 years before the Skywalker Saga, The Acolyte will bring the High Republic era to the screen for the first time. It’s thrilling news to Star Wars fans since many books, comics, and video games have explored this era.
The Daily Mail provides a new look at characters of the upcoming show. Squid Game star Lee Jung-jae was seen in costume for the first time on the forest set of highly-anticipated Star Wars prequel, The Acolyte, which began production November 7 at the UK’s Shinfield Studios.
Below, you can check out some photos of the show’s cast from Twitter posts, which feature first looks at several “Star Wars: The Acolyte” characters.
There’s even a Jedi Wookiee character!
What’s surprising to hear is how showrunner Leslye Headland will reportedly be drawing from elements of the Star Wars Expanded Universe (E.U.) as inspiration.
“Leslye Headland is a gigantic Star Wars fan,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said of the series’ showrunner. “What’s wonderful about Leslye is she knows it all. I mean, she’s read a gazillion books inside the E.U. There are little bits and pieces that she’s drawing from that no one has explored yet in the onscreen storytelling.”
Even though it’s set before The Phantom Menace, it’s unlikely that we’ll see characters such as Palpatine given the era of The Acolyte. However, we could very well see his master, Darth Plagueis!
We can’t wait to learn more about Star Wars: The Acolyte as we get closer to production.
