Disney has released the first trailer for the upcoming Disney+ Original series, “The Acolyte”, which 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.

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…

Check out “The Acolyte” trailer below:

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 Acolyte” is created by Leslye Headland, who has previously worked on the hit series “Russian Doll”.  Leslye serves as the showrunner and also 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, Damian Anderson, Rob Bredow, and Eileen Shim are producing.

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.

Award-winning composer Michael Abels, known for his work on “Get Out” and “Us,” scored Star Wars: The Acolyte.”

A new poster for the series has also been released:

This brand-new series will premiere on Disney+ worldwide on June 4th 2024, with a two-episode premiere.  As with other major originals like “Ahsoka, “Loki” and “Percy Jackson And The Olympians”, it will debut at 6 pm PT / 9 pm ET on Tuesday evening, so due to timezones, the series technically will arrive on Disney+ in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Pacific the next day.
