STAR WARS: THE ACOLYTE Leaked Footage Reveals That [SPOILER] Is The Show's Mysterious Sith Master

STAR WARS: THE ACOLYTE Leaked Footage Reveals That [SPOILER] Is The Show's Mysterious Sith Master STAR WARS: THE ACOLYTE Leaked Footage Reveals That [SPOILER] Is The Show's Mysterious Sith Master

We were first introduced to The Master in the closing moments of The Acolyte's premiere, but leaked photos and footage from the latest Star Wars TV series finally reveals who is beneath the Sith's helmet.

The first episode of The Acolyte, "Lost / Found," ended with the introduction of The Master, a mysterious new villain who is almost certainly a Sith Lord. He wields a red lightsaber and intends to destroy the Jedi, so short of us meeting a new group of dark side Force users, this character must come before Darth Plagueis and Emperor Palpatine. 

Fans have been speculating ever since about who might be beneath the mask and, given the secrecy surrounding who he is both in the show and promotional materials, The Master must be either a character we've met in the series or someone from the wider Star Wars franchise. 

However, it seems the Loth-cat is now out of the bag.

Footage and photos from the set of The Acolyte appear to have been shared online by a crew member, and while we'd imagine they were swiftly deleted, they're currently all over X, Instagram, Reddit, and TikTok.

We won't be sharing them here but can tell you that they feature a tense confrontation between Jedi Master Sol (who is joined by Osha) and a lightsaber-wielding character who may be The Master or Mae. 

Osha or Mae hold a lightsaber at the throat of Manny Jacinto's Qimir who, yes, looks to be decked out in The Master's gear. Many fans have theorised that there must be more to the smuggler than meets the eye, and we believe that's confirmed with this leak. 

While this is a sizeable spoiler, we still don't know how we get to this point or where in the Disney+ series this sequence takes place. We also can't discount this possibly being a misdirect or case of mistaken identity. That doesn't seem likely, though.

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.

The next Star Wars TV series comes from creator and showrunner Leslye Headland (Russian Doll), who also serves as executive producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Simon Emanuel, Jeff F. King, and Jason Micallef. Charmaine DeGraté and Kor Adana are the co-executive producers, and Rayne Roberts and Damian Anderson are producing.

The first two episodes of The Acolyte are now streaming on Disney+.

This is a bad show.
SATW42 - 6/10/2024, 11:40 AM
@Thing94 - can you show us on the doll where the show hurt you?

@Thing94 - I enjoy parts of it, which seems to be my sentiment on most major IP's these days unfortunately. It has its moments, Jung-Jae is doing great and I've enjoyed most of the characters so far. I hope the Yorde horde doesn't become a thing. The story telling I'm still on the fence about though. We didn't need the soapbox/15 min of fame moment from the cat though...the mysterious stranger never came off as all that mysterious. He just reminds me of what Jar-Jar could have been, and what most Sith largely are...masters of deception.
IronMan616 - 6/10/2024, 11:51 AM
@SATW42 - If Thing94 had said Morbius or Madame Web were bad , would you also be saying "show us on the doll..."? Or do your hurt feelings only apply to Disney related content?
FireandBlood - 6/10/2024, 11:52 AM
@IronMan616 - They’re critically panned movies. The Acolyte is a critically acclaimed show. There’s no comparison.
IronMan616 - 6/10/2024, 11:56 AM
@FireandBlood - Bullshit, critically acclaimed by who? the shill media? And who cares what the media thinks, the Thing94 poster thinks it's a bad show, now you Disney shills want to change his mind or insult him because he thinks differently?
Thing94 - 6/10/2024, 11:57 AM
@IronMan616 - Thank you. Very logical response but the Disney woke agenda mob does not use this concept of logic.
FireandBlood - 6/10/2024, 11:59 AM
@IronMan616 - By professional critics.

“Shill this, shill that”.

You sound stupid. And miserable.
Origame - 6/10/2024, 11:59 AM
@IronMan616 - this is the state of this site. Can't just disagree. Gotta insult them relentlessly. And if you fight back you're the problem apparently 🙄
IronMan616 - 6/10/2024, 12:09 PM
@FireandBlood - Coming from the loser that has to comment on everyone's post that says anything negative about this show? You're the miserable little loser troll.
IronMan616 - 6/10/2024, 12:13 PM
@Origame - LOL, they talk so much about free speech, being heard, love, blah blah blah, as soon as you disagree with them, it's incel this neckbeard that, and you a racists! All OP said was this is a bad show and it's he's been molested by someone.
Origame - 6/10/2024, 12:17 PM
@AvalonX - @IronMan616

I'm seriously getting into an argument with this guy insisting I'm making the site unbearable, and when I point out they start the arguments by insulting he seriously claims it's "their opinion, and everyone is entitled to theirs" 🙄

In truth, they know we have more fun bashing these shows than they do watching them. And they can't stand it.
DarthOmega - 6/10/2024, 12:18 PM
@AvalonX - You ever notice when they say they like a show literally no one replies to them telling them how wrong they are for liking it? It's their opinion. They're allowed to have it. The very second you say you don't like something they rush in with torches and pitchforks to not only tell you how wrong your opinions are but how evil of a person you are.

These are the identity obsessed. But you know what towers over identity? Character. The identity obsessed lack character. This is why they fall for every current movement. This is why they repeat the same insults over and over. The NPC meme is old but I think it was the most accurate description of these folks.

@SATW42 - oh please touch that doll hard

If it was post 737 about it, yes, yes I would.
Batmangina - 6/10/2024, 12:33 PM
@Origame - Pretty sure everyone under 35 is a total pussy these days and cannot think for themselves - the use of 'Critically acclaimed' as some sort of burn is [frick]ing retarded - especially in today's world of NERFing everything so the babies don't get sand in their pussies.

Bunch of soft ass hive mind, shitty taste having bitches who can't take criticism or form a cogent argument.

They can't afford to support the bullshit they claim to love, so thank God, it has a shelf life.
SATW42 - 6/10/2024, 12:46 PM
@IronMan616 - "Or do your hurt feelings only apply to Disney related content?"

Shill this, shill that. Just on the Marvel side alone, I didn't see Black Widow, Shang-Chi, Eternals, No way Home, Love and Thunder, Wakanda Forever or the Marvels in theatres.

I still haven't watched Echo and I dropped out of Secret Invasion and didn't watch What if Season 2.

Also still haven't gotten to X-Men 97.

I haven't watched ANY of Star Wars tv shows, and my most recent film going experiences have all been non Disney with things like Super Mario, TMNT, Ghostbusters afterlife.

We have Disney + and it's basically the Bluey app for my kids, and I watch Always Sunny on Hulu in it.

Dafuq outta here with this shill nonsense. I call out stupid hate filled trolling regardless of the distributor because I don't give a shit. Believe it or not, it's not you love disney or you hate it. Some people asre just apathetic, or can't stand when bullshit lies are spread so I try to instill FACTS into conversations.
FireandBlood - 6/10/2024, 12:48 PM
@SATW42 - *gets Bluey PTSD*

That damn dog 😂
SATW42 - 6/10/2024, 12:56 PM
@FireandBlood - lol, I actually like Bluey. ONly brought it up because it's yet another non Disney property that is consumed in my house yet I'm a shill who exclusively watches Disney...

Also, you want to talk "agendas" Bluey actually has a banned episode on Disney because the dad pretends to give birth while playing a game with the kids. It's the exact opposite of the agenda these losers claim Disney pushes, but don't let facts get in the way of a good quartering video.

@DarthOmega - @Origame - DarthOmega - Because they aren't fan, they are trolls and activists.

None of them understand plot, story structure, writing etc.

As far as free speech, progressives don't believe in that. They will punish you for disagreeing but never apologize when you were right.
Origame - 6/10/2024, 1:27 PM
@Batmangina - now I gotta cry. I won't turn 35 until August
Origame - 6/10/2024, 1:30 PM
@AvalonX - then they say stuff like "free speech doesn't mean freedom from consequences", and it's like "then why are political views enough to get you fired and ostracized from society"?

Of course you can compare Trump and Republicans to the nazis and the kkk all you want, but compare vaccine card requirements to the document requirements the nazis made before the holocaust? Gtfo.
SATW42 - 6/10/2024, 1:37 PM
@AvalonX - "None of them understand plot, story structure, writing etc." I would absolutely house you on these things but 1, it wouldn't be worth it because you never argue in good faith, and 2 because the things you are talking about are generally not strong suits for the kinds of movies we talk about on this site.

It's like saying you want to have those discussions about Fast and Furious without realizing nobody who likes those things actually want that. We want ridiculously over the top stunts with Vin Diesel growling about family and cars and coronas.

Give me super heros doing super hero things in big dumb battles with some quips along the way. I don't need this shit to be shakespeare or studied in [frick]ing film classes by kids who get their degrees in this shit and then use in between their restaurant shifts and if they could just get someone to read their spec.

@SATW42 - “A proper writer” you know 😂

Probably the most improper way to announce that. Like, honestly. That’s too on the nose 🤣
Batmangina - 6/10/2024, 7:06 PM
@Origame - You're grandfathered in - clearly, you just missed the indoctrination camp bus.
Origame - 6/10/2024, 7:11 PM
@Batmangina - best sick day I ever had. I was wondering why this was my class on Monday.

Batmangina - 6/10/2024, 7:17 PM
@Origame - What's hilarious is that the Beta Ray Shills on here would tell you THOSE guys don't know Star Wars and they're just the white supremacist face of YouTube.
Origame - 6/10/2024, 7:20 PM
@Batmangina - yeah. I don't even agree with their prequel analysis but they've been spot on for disney star wars memes.
Origame - 6/10/2024, 11:43 AM
You might as well say the master is Palpatine, who tells us his plans for everything from phantom menace to rise of skywalker and beyond (yes, somehow Palpatine will return again).
Blergh - 6/10/2024, 11:50 AM
@Origame - I actually would have liked a Palpatine origin story in disguise of something else. The character deserves more focus.
Origame - 6/10/2024, 11:54 AM
@Blergh - I get that but after rise of skywalker the idea of more Palpatine, even in a prequel, is just hilarious
Blergh - 6/10/2024, 11:57 AM
@Origame - a bad movie shouldn’t undo an entire character, if that was the case we shouldn’t get excited for Deadpool vs. Wolverine because Wolvie has been in some real stinkers and XO.

And IMO Palpatine was the least offensive thing about ROS. He was obviously included because Johnson killed Snoke and they needed a new big bad asap. For what he was he worked perfectly.
Blergh - 6/10/2024, 11:58 AM
@Origame - but to be fair I’m a simp for Sidious and McDiarmid. I’d watch the guy snore for 4 hours straight and have a fan boner
Origame - 6/10/2024, 12:03 PM
@Blergh - I mean, it wasn't just a bad movie. It's a bad movie that also specifically broke everyone's suspension of disbelief by taking a character who blew up twice and said he survived because "somehow Palpatine returned". Just the fact that was the extent of explaining how he survived is ridiculous, and is forever gonna be associated with future appearances, no matter where in the timeline it takes place.

I do agree he's great. I don't like what they did because it's gonna hurt anytime he shows up again.
DarthOmega - 6/10/2024, 12:11 PM
@Blergh - I always imagined a Sith anthology limited series. Maybe 5 or 8 episodes. All showcasing different eras of the Sith and having some connective thread between the stories. The show would be narrated by an interesting voice.

The end of the very last episode will flash forward to "current" day with the narrator still telling the stories but this time in person. He's walking with another hooded figure in a Sith temple looking at old Sith artifacts from each era. The camera slowly pans in to a glass case possibly showcasing a Holocron.

The reflection in the glass reflects a long face. The face of a Muun. He leaves a few departing words. The camera pans left to the other hooded figure. A very familiar hooded figure. A devious smile comes over his face. Screen fades to black. Credits.

As you've no doubt guessed, the two hooded figures are Darth Plagueis and a young Sheev Palpatine. Possibly the same night Plagueis was poisoned.
AlexGSpeaks - 6/10/2024, 12:14 PM
@Blergh - ROS didn't need a new big bad because Johnson already gave him one: Kylo Ren. Having Ren be the villain as intended before Abrams took over again would have be something new for SW. We got a villain who had his "come back to the light" moment and said nope. Abrams only brought back Palpatine because he wanted to remake ROTJ.
FireandBlood - 6/10/2024, 11:48 AM
@Mrnorth1921 - Well shit, we was both wrong.
Mrnorth1921 - 6/10/2024, 12:08 PM
@FireandBlood - wrong as in?
