    The Acolyte is the series of events before Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. The plot shows the High Republic Era at its peak power. The events are from the times when the Jedi were the most powerful. And Sith was nowhere in the galaxy.

    Headland talked with Vanity Fair in May and stated that “We’re taking a look at the political and personal and spiritual things that came up in a time period that we don’t know much about“. He said “My question when watching ‘The Phantom Menace was always like, ‘Well, how did things get to this point?’ How did we get to a point where a Sith lord can infiltrate the Senate and none of the Jedi pick up on it? Like, what went wrong? What are the scenarios that led us to this moment?”.

    Fans are looking forward to seeing the Korean Actor Lee Jung Jae in Star Wars series The Acolyte. We too have our fingers crossed for the big step of his international debut. For more news on the latest movie releases, check the News page of Retrology.
