Star Wars: The Acolyte first trailer: Amandla Stenberg trains as a Sith Lord and battles Carrie-Anne Moss as Jedi are murdered in action-packed clip

Star Wars: The Acolyte has released its first trailer and revealed the release date for the highly anticipated series.

Amandla Stenberg and Carrie-Anne Moss were seen battling it out in the nearly two-minute, action-packed clip.

The highly anticipated series will debut on the Disney Plus streaming service on June 4.

There was a noticeably darker tone than the rest of the Star Wars franchise in the clip, as one of the main storylines in the series will be the murder of Jedi Masters as a deadly disturbance in The Force is teased.

Amandla plays Mae, a former Padawan turned dangerous warrior now training to become a Sith Lord.

She was previously trained by Sol, a respected Jedi master played by Emmy-winning Squid Game actor Lee Jung-jae.

No doubt the two characters will clash at some point in the series, as the logline reads: ‘An investigation into a shocking crime wave pits a respected Jedi master (Lee Jung-Jae) against a dangerous warrior from his past (Stenberg) .

“As more clues emerge, they follow a dark path where sinister forces reveal that all is not as it seems.”

One of the more interesting scenes came when The Matrix actress Carrie-Anne is seen in character as a Jedi master named Indara as she battled Mae.

Towards the end of the trailer, Jodie Turner-Smith – who plays Mother Aniseya, the leader of a witches’ coven – was heard saying: ‘This isn’t about good or bad.

“This is about power… and who gets to use it.”

The trailer ends with someone holding the famous red Sith lightsaber while several Jedi have their weapons in hand as they run towards the enemy to fight him out.

Just a day before Disney unveiled the first poster for the highly anticipated Star Wars TV series.

Very little is known about the Star Wars series at this time, other than that it is set approximately 100 years before the events of the first Star Wars prequel film, 1999’s The Phantom Menace.

The show gives fans a glimpse into the end of what has become known as the High Republic Era in Star Wars lore.

The Acolyte follows a former Padawan (Amandla Stenberg) who reunites with the Jedi Master (Lee Jung-ja) who taught her to investigate a series of crimes.

Disney has unveiled the first poster for the highly anticipated Star Wars TV series The Acolyte, which debuts on the Disney Plus streaming service on June 4.

As they begin their investigation, the “forces they face are more sinister than they ever expected.”

The cast also includes Manny Jacinto, Dafne Keen, Jodie Turner-Smith, Rebecca Henderson, Charlie Barnett, Dean-Charles Chapman and Carrie-Anne Moss.

Joonas Suotamo also reprises his role as Chewbacca from the Star Wars sequel trilogy, taking over the role from the late Peter Mayhew, who passed away in 2019.

The series was created by longtime Star Wars fan Lestyle Headland, best known for creating the Netflix series Russian Doll.

The Acolyte will represent a number of firsts in Star Wars history, including being the first show told from the point of view of the evil Sith.

It will also represent the first TV show or movie set within the Star Wars timeline, a full century before the prequel trilogy.

While there have been countless books, comic books, and video games exploring the High Republic era, this will be the first live-action project to explore it.

Headland explained to EW’s Dagobah Dispatch podcast in July 2023: “We’re near the end of the High Republic, leading into the George (Lucas) prequels, so we’re looking at a time period where the Jedi are at the height of their power . … (and) there is peace throughout the galaxy.”

‘It was very challenging and interesting to make a Star Wars project without war in it. So the question became, “What should the show be about if not about galactic conflict?” she added.

“I think what makes this show different and interesting is that it’s from the perspective of the villains of Star Wars,” she added.

“These are people who use the Force in their own way, delving into the darker sides of the Force, and doing so without being sanctioned by the larger institution, in this case the Jedi,” she continued.

Headland added that there will be “more Jedi than you’ve seen in other Star Wars content,” but there will also be more “morally ambiguous characters.”

“Star Wars has always been about some version of the underdog versus the institution. And I just thought it was really interesting to do a show about the bad guys and make that make the most sense in that period. So it’s almost turned around,” she said.
