Star Wars The Acolyte, production has begun

According to a report by Bespin Bulletin, the Star Wars The Acolyte TV series has begun production. Specifically, it's all happening at Shinfield Studios in the UK. Recall that The Colyte is run by showrunner Leslye Headland, co-creator of Russian Doll.

According to a recent interview, Star Wars The Acolyte is a mystery thriller set in a prosperous and seemingly peaceful era. Headland explained that the series is set about 100 years before the events of The Phantom Menace. The new series will star Amandla Stenberg and will feature Lee Jung-jae (Squid Game), Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim), Manny Jacinto (The Good Place) and Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll).

"Many of these characters have not yet been born," Headland explained. “We are taking a look at the political, personal and spiritual issues that have emerged over a period of time that we don't know much about. When I watched The Phantom Menace I always wondered,“ How did it come to this point? ”How did it come about. to a point where a Sith lord can infiltrate the Senate and none of the Jedi notices? What went wrong? What scenarios have brought us to this moment? ".

The Star logo Wars The Acolyte "She's a huge Star Wars fan," Kathleen Kennedy previously said of the writer. "The wonderful thing about Leslye is that she knows everything. I mean, she's read a billion books about the expanded universe. There are little bits she's drawing on that no one has yet explored narratively in a TV series." br>
"The truth is that I, as a big fan, went to them with this idea. And I said: 'I think the best place to set it is in an era that you haven't explored yet'", Headland revealed to Vanity Fair earlier this year. "They were very enthusiastic."

She continued: "I approached this project as a fan who was much more interested in the RPG that the Expanded Universe feeds on. I got very close to it in the 90s and then I was introduced to [Star Wars:] The Clone Wars. I knew the timeline very well. And I said to myself, "I think if you want to explore Star Wars from the perspective of the villains, the best time to do it is when the villains are outnumbered. . When they are essentially the underdogs, for lack of a better term. So this would be that era. "

Let's remember then that The Acolyte is just one of the series in development. We also have The Mandalorian, the currently ongoing Andor, Ahsoka and the new Skeleton Crew
