Star Wars: The Acolyte Drops Morbid New Poster; Teases First Trailer

Star Wars: The Acolyte Drops Morbid New Poster; Teases First Trailer

It’s going to be a while before The Mandalorian and Grogu make it to the big screen, but Disney still has several other Star Wars projects in the works—one of which is said to be a murder-mystery called The Acolyte.

Just in, Lucasfilm announces that they’ll be dropping their first trailer for the series, and we have a rather morbid poster to go along with the preview. Check this out:

“In an age of light, a darkness rises”

With the dark imagery of the poster, a lot of fans are convinced that this is one of the more mature stories that will be set in the Star Wars universe, unlike the more kid-friendly, fanservice-heavy shows like Ahsoka, The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Then again, it’s kind of too early to tell. We’ll just have to wait and see for the first trailer to drop to really get a good idea of what kind of approach the series is going to go for.

It’s also worth noting that the series is set during the High Republic era, which is a hundred years before the events of The Phantom Menace. We don’t have any High Republic-era material on live-action besides Acolyte, but you can learn all about that time period thanks to several comics and novels.

Here’s the synopsis (via @DiscussingFilm):

‘STAR WARS: THE ACOLYTE’ follows an investigation into a crime spree that pits a respected Jedi Master (Lee Jung-jae) against a dangerous warrior from his past (Amandla Stenberg).

As clues emerge, they travel down a dark path where sinister forces reveal all is not what it seems.

The Acolyte is set to premiere on Disney+ on June 4.
