One of the Disney +projects, the Acolyte series, from the Star Wars universe, has just been postponed, according to the sources of The Illuminerdi.


The pop-culture site The Illuminerdi, often well informed with regard to Disney + productions, announces that its sources report a Report of the shooting and the release of the Acolyte series.

A series centered on the dark side

While fans on the clear side of Star Wars await Andor series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka, and the sequel to The Mandalorian , the faithful of Obscur side await the series The Acolyte . Project still very mysterious, The Acolyte will take place during the High Republic (about two centuries before episode 1 of the films). We will see the awakening of new dark forces . The series should indeed focus on a main character who will be a follower on the dark side of the force . Moreover, the title “acolyte” refers to a way of calling apprentices on the dark side. We do not yet know the official casting, but we know that the series will be produced by Leslye Headland . However, Illuminrdi claims that it is, according to their sources, actress Amandla Stenberg who will play the main role of the series, baptized Aura . The site adds that production would still seek actors for two other important roles: Paul , a regular role for a single season and interpreted by a man in his fifty years, and Miri , a Young girl A guest role that could be interpreted by twins (to alternate between the two minor actors for this role, since their working times is more limited than that of adults).

Amandla Stenberg would be the interpreter of Aura, the main character of The Acolyte

maybe we will have to wait until 2024

The filming of The Acolyte was originally to start Beginning of 2022 , then was postponed to June 2022 , but according to Illuminord, the plans again have been modified. Indeed, their sources informed them that the production of the series would be repulsed in October 2022 , to finish in May 2023 . As for the broadcast of the series, it is difficult to be sure of the window. Indeed, with the shooting from June 2022 to January 2023, the series was expected for the summer of 2023 on our screens. With an offset ending in May, we would logically wait for the series for the fall of 2023 . However, there is chances that fall is already taken by the broadcast of season 2 of Andor . The end of the year could again be the place of a series linked to the Mandalorian , as was the case this year with Boba Fett . The forecasts therefore hang on a availability of The Acolyte for the year 2024 . We have no details on the exact reasons for the postponement of the shooting.

If we believe the information of The Illuminrdi, we must wait until October for the start of the shooting of Star Wars: The Acolyte. As for the distribution on Disney +, it may be necessary to wait until the year 2024.

I’m starting to know what it looks like when Disney claims to do something serious or dark… exactly the same as other prods, the last example Moon Knight.
