We're now less than a week away from the two-episode premiere of The Acolyte, and Disney+ has released a series of character posters spotlighting the show's Jedi heroes, as well as Mae, the mysterious dark-side assassin of the title.

In addition to providing new looks at Mae, Jedi Masters Sol, Indara, Kelnacca, and Padawan Jecki Lon, the banners reveal some new details about each character. There are no spoilers, of course, but the information does give us a better idea of how they'll factor into the story.

The first two episodes of The Acolyte were screened at a London premiere event last night, and attendees have been sharing their reactions to social media. Like the initial round of responses, these are mostly positive, if a little less enthusiastic overall.

Check out the posters and reactions at the links below, along with a recently-released TV spot featuring some new footage.

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.

...a scene lifted from the fugitive?

Mae holds a blaster to sol going "I didn't kill my wife", then sol goes "I don't care" before Mae jumps off a water dam.

Cool , glad to see the positive reactions (for the most part atleast)!!.

Nice character posters and descriptions aswell…

I am intrigued as to why Kelnacca has isolated himself from the others , I’m assuming it’s due to his involvement in Mae’s past along with Sol & Indara and that he might feel ashamed about what he or they did to her since she’s seemingly back to seek revenge for it.

I’m assuming that second gif is during a flashback that will show us Mae’s backstory and motive for revenge.

Also in regards to Jecki Lon , I wouldn’t be surprised that since Leslye Headland has said that “The Wrong Jedi” from Clone Wars was an inspiration in the series that her faith in the Jedi is broken by the end after everything is revealed

Anyway , looking forward to this!!

@Urubrodi - Have you seen the trailers,this is how you decide if something looks good or bad. It looks bad but hey enjoy it if you want,I will not hold it against you.

@marvel72 - I would honestly gladly take a Kill Bill 3 over this, and the next six future upcoming strong independent and mysterious female driven Disney products.

@Matchesz - Kill Bill Vol 3 needs to happen as for another Disney Marvel or Disney Star Wars show with female leads well that certainly doesn't need to happen.

@marvel72 - did you know Kill Bill is a Disney movie?

Cause that's obviously a contradiction.

marvel72 - 5/29/2024, 9:22 PM
@Itwasme - Yeah but it was through Miramax I believe and Disney wouldn't dare tell Tarantino what can go in a movie.

Itwasme - 5/29/2024, 10:07 PM
@marvel72 - they had script approval the whole time and was able to provide notes, but most often didn't. Disney actively produced those too. Pulp Fiction was famously the first Miramax film to be fully produced by Disney, so they were more involved then they are with Marvel today.

I just had a revelation
If Palpatine/Sidious used the force to impregnate Schmi (Anakins mother). Then he's basically Anakin's father

Rey is a clone of Palpatine. So in a sense Anakin and Rey are siblings (if you consider Boba to be Jango's "son").

Now Rey taking on thr Skywalker name makes a whole heck of a lot of sense
Please star wars buffs, show me where my thinking is wrong here. Because i haven't seen anyone else including Disney make it this clear. We have all been laughing that Rey stole the name but she literally may be the quintessential Skywalker

@Vigor - It was Plagueis who force phucked schmi, there was a comic book that tried to give the impression that Vader suspected Sheev's involvement but Sheev never did the deed unless they're rewriting sh1t again.

@HashTagSwagg - thanks for clearing that up! So we go back to Rey just being a fangirl. Got it

@Vigor - She was the daughter of a Palpatine clone, not an Anakin clone. If Palpatine had force impregnated Anakin’s mom (I don’t think that’s the case but let’s assume it was), it still wouldn’t make her a Skywalker. Her father was a Palpatine clone. She has no Skywalker in her lineage. She appropriated the name.

Just by watching the trailers, it seems like shes still in Character from the Matrix. Even moves like it when she fights. I might pass on this one.

"at the moment it lacks a strong voice and I was never really excited - keen for more though!" ... "Intriguing premise, looks great and incredible casting - excited to have a non-binary lead, as well as an Asian actor, among the core characters" ... "Plenty of action and an intriguing plot, not exactly blown away" ... "most I’ve enjoyed Star Wars since Andor."

Reading between the lines,
