New STAR WARS: THE ACOLYTE Teasers May Confirm Recent Rumor Relating To [SPOILER] New STAR WARS: THE ACOLYTE Teasers May Confirm Recent Rumor Relating To [SPOILER]

We're now just a few weeks away from the two-episode premiere of The Acolyte, and Lucasfilm has released a pair of very interesting new teaser promos...

The next live-action Disney+ Star Wars series, The Acolyte, is set to premiere on June 5, and Lucasfilm has now released two new teasers, one of which might confirm (or at least hint at) a recent rumor that's been doing the rounds.

Possible spoilers follow.

The first promo once again sees Master Sol vow to track down his wayward apprentice, Mae, who has seemingly fallen to the Dark Side and become the titular acolyte (which she is referred to as for the first time here). We then see Mae confronted at the edge of a snowy cliff, where she professes her innocence: "I didn't do it... believe me!"

If she is being sincere here, it might just confirm a persistent rumor that actress Amandla Stenberg will actually play a dual role as twins, which means Mae could have an evil sister out there taking down Jedi and framing her sibling for the murders. The same rumor claims that Manny Jacinto (Qimir) will also play a pair of twins, but we have very few details on his character.

The second teaser gives us an extended look at the battle between Mae (or more likely her unnamed sister) and Master Indara, who seems surprised at her foe's abilities. After demanding to know who trained her opponent, Indara stops messing about and ignites her lightsaber.

In The Acolyte, an investigation into a shocking crime spree pits a respected Jedi Master (Lee Jung-jae) against a dangerous warrior from his past (Amandla Stenberg). As more clues emerge, they travel down a dark path where sinister forces reveal all is not what it seems.

 The series stars Amandla Stenberg, Lee Jung-jae, Manny Jacinto, Dafne Keen, Charlie Barnett, Jodie Turner-Smith, Rebecca Henderson, Dean-Charles Chapman, Joonas Suotamo, and Carrie-Anne Moss.

Leslye Headland created the series, based on Star Wars by George Lucas, and serves as an executive producer along with Kathleen Kennedy, Simon Emanuel, Jeff F. King and Jason Micallef. Charmaine DeGraté and Kor Adana are the co-executive producers. Rayne Roberts, Damian Anderson, Eileen Shim and Rob Bredow are the producers.

Headland also directed the premiere episodes (Eps. 101 & 102). Directors Kogonada (Eps. 103 & 107), Alex Garcia Lopez (Eps. 104 & 105) and Hanelle Culpepper (Eps. 106 & 108) round out the directing duties on the series.

"I really wanted to tell a story about the Sith," showrunner Headland told EW in a recent interview. "That was kind of my dream Star Wars idea. But it felt like the time period to do that in would be something pre-Phantom Menace. That seemed to be the most interesting trajectory for the Sith: How did the Sith go from the Rule of Two and being quote-unquote 'extinct' to Palpatine coming into power without the Jedi knowing about it?"

Award-winning composer Michael Abels, known for his work on Get Out and Us, scored The Acolyte.

Oh look, proper spoiler tags.

Thank you for being a professional, Mark.

Just out of curiosity, Mark, how long did it take you to be considerate towards us and add those spoiler tags? Was it difficult? Because Josh seemed to think it was unreasonable yesterday.

You are referencing previously released footage while not spoiling it in the headline. Perfect journalism.

@TheVandalore - Not sure exactly what you're referring to, but I added the tag here because if this rumor is true, it would be considered a pretty big spoiler. Nothing to do with previously released footage. Spoiler tags generally get MORE traffic, so if Josh didn't include one, it's because he didn't feel it was necessary.

@MarkCassidy - That was how I read it, likely want to know who it is so they can try to find who their source was, or if they are an actual insider fire them.

So Acolyte's are Sith but "not really", just like Harfoot's are Hobbit's but "not really".

@HashTagSwagg - An acolyte is just a word for a loyal and devoted follower... it wasn't invented by Lucasfilm!

@HashTagSwagg - There is only ever two Sith Lords at any one time, the Master and apprentice, but always gonna be a LOT of devout followers and assistants to the Sith order (which is what acolyte means), the franchise didn't invent the term.

Acolyte
anyone who follows or helps another person, or someone who helps a priest in some religious ceremonies

Acolyte
a person who follows and helps a leader
the Emperor’s faithful acolytes

@HashTagSwagg - Side note, there are three breeds of Hobbit.

Harfoots (the most common, associated with farming)
Stoors (associated with fishing)
Fallohides (the rarist, known for their height and agility)

Thus there is no 'not realy' hobbits for Harfoots, that would be akin to saying caucasions are not realy human, or retreivers are 'not realy' dogs, lol.

BTW there was a species IRL called Hobbits...

Homo floresiensis is an extinct species of small archaic human that inhabited the island of Flores, Indonesia, until the arrival of modern humans about 50,000 years ago. The remains of an individual who would have stood about 1.1 m (3 ft 7 in) in height were discovered in 2003 at Liang Bua cave

Sweet , the fight scene looks cool!!.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Amandla Stenberg is playing twins given that the showrunner has said one of the themes this focuses on is duality so you could literally do that then…

Plus the original synopsis said that a former Padawan would be teaming up with her master to investigate who is murdering Jedi i so it would make sense then that Mae maybe joins forces with Sol so she could find & reach out to her sister.

I've been very excited for this to come out, I can't wait! It's gonna be so much freaking fun to rip this thing apart to see just how ridiculous and dumb it'll be. It's gonna be an awesome time. Thank you Disney for the LOLs!!

@WarMonkey - For enjoying the franchise? Sure. Meanwhile you’re miserable, only paying attention out to spite for the sole purpose of strictly hating. Remember, any critique you have for this show will be entirely written off as invalid because as you’ve demonstrated here and now, you’ve already decided to hate it before you’ve seen anything, so in a few months, don’t try come with that fake shit. You already played yourself.

@FireandBlood - You're calling him a hater HaHa. You're one of the top 5 racists on this board. No one is watching this show, you guys know it so you are already setting up the same old narrative to justify when it bombs.

Must have been the incels.

You have no right to preach to anyone.

@AvalonX - I don’t care if you incel weirdos watch the show. It’s already been made. You’ve stopped nothing. And if you haven’t noticed, you’re stopping nothing. They’re still making movies with women and POC, and there’s quite literally nothing you pussies can do about it 🫵🏽😂

Perfect.

Twins would be interesting as I would imagine they would have the exact same midichlorine count. The real question would be, why did the Jedi only abduct one child?

How is this news??? We already knew she was a sister!!!

Timerider - 5/12/2024, 9:57 AM
If there is indeed twins, one Jedi, one an Acolyte of the Sith, then the Acolyte twin kills the Jedi twin, but what we find out as the audience is, after their battle is over, the Acolyte twin infiltrates the Jedi and pretends to be the Jedi twin. They are able to infiltrate, change and manipulate the Jedi after this.

@Timerider - or my thought at one point is BOTH sisters are acolytes, they are in on it together trying to mess with the old master Sol

@marvel72 - Yep... Definitely not watching the show now that the Valiant Incels have made a video about it.

marvel72 - 5/12/2024, 10:47 AM
@MarkCassidy - But it doesn't look good from the trailers, that's what they are thumbing down.

Trailers are made for you to decide whether you chose to watch or not.
FireandBlood
FireandBlood - 5/12/2024, 11:08 AM
@marvel72 - You was shitting on this show before any trailer dropped, why you acting like the trailers were a deciding factor in anything? 😂
MarkCassidy
MarkCassidy - 5/12/2024, 11:37 AM
@marvel72 - I think it does look good... nothing spectacular, but I'm definitely interested in giving it a go. Those yahoos see more than one woman with a lightsaber in her hand and blow a gasket.
marvel72
marvel72 - 5/12/2024, 12:06 PM
@FireandBlood - Yeah I said it sounded shit before the trailers dropped but a trailer is suppose to sway your opinion one way or the other.

You remember how users where shitting on Echo before it came out, then some changed their mind when seeing the trailer.

However the show was bad,I only managed the first episode.

@MarkCassidy - Valiant Renegade actually has a really hot wife and a really cool kid. So literally not an incel. Which does factually make you a liar and someone who is spreading a false rumor.
