Just ahead of the release of the new Disney+ Original series, “Star Wars: The Acolyte”, Disney held a special UK premiere on Tuesday evening at Odeon Luxe in London’s Leicester Square.

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.
