Star Wars: The Acolyte Puts the Spotlight on Lee Jung-jae’s Master Sol

Lee Jung-jae is no doubt best known for his role as the lead Gi-hun in Netflix’s mega hit Squid Game, but he’s jumped over to Lucasfilm to work upcoming Star Wars series The Acolyte.

The show is set to premiere in a few weeks, and we have a new featurette putting the spotlight on Lee’s character Master Sol. Watch this:

Information has been slowly coming out about the series, and it looks like we’re going to be seeing two eras of Master Sol, one as an apprentice, and another as a fully realized Jedi. By the looks of it, the titular acolyte will have been Sol’s former padawan, and it will be up to him to stop her.

Though Jedi are always the noble good characters in Star Wars, it’s kind of implied that The Acolyte will be portraying them in a different light, this time giving us the point-of-view of a Sith character. If you’ve followed The Clone Wars, you’ll know that the Jedi’s downfalls have been explored in the series; and The Last Jedi really leaned into it when Luke Skywalker himself talked about how the hubris of the Jedi allowed for them to get wiped out.

Either way, Lee was great in Squid Game, and though Gi-hun was kind of a bumbling character, it’s going to be interesting to watch him be a Jedi this time. I don’t expect him to be the cleanest character either, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see till the premiere.

Watch out for The Acolyte when it premieres on Disney+ on June 4.
