There are many series currently in development for Disney+, and one of those is “Star Wars: The Acolyte”, which was originally announced at the Investor Day in 2020.
“The Acolyte” is a mystery-thriller that will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic era, which is around 50 years before the events of “The Phantom Menace.”
The series is going to star Amandla Stenberg, Jodie Turner-Smith, Manny Jacinto and Lee Jung-jae.
Leslye Headland is going to be the director, writer, exec producer and showrunner for the Disney+ series. She has previously created Netflix’s “Russian Doll”.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Charlie Barnett is going to be reuniting with Leslye Headland on the new Disney+ Star Wars series. Charlie Barnett has previously starred in “Russian Doll”, “Arrow” and “You”.
Disney hasn’t officially confirmed the casting, and no details on what character Charlie will be playing have been revealed.
