After months of waiting and speculation, the new series Star Wars: The Acolyteis finally released on Disney+. After the latest failures of Obi-Wan, The Book of Boba Fett and to a lesser extent, Ahsoka (symptomatic of the difficulties that the firm with big ears to tell something new and emancipate itself from the legacy left by George Lucas), this new series is the perfect opportunity to move on to something else, for the simple reason that the plot takes place well before George Lucas' prelogy. Follower of fan service to excess, to the point of disgust, Disney finally has the opportunity to show what it has in its belly by creating its own universe. so, what is the verdict?

Despite some problems of rhythm, which the franchise has accustomed us to, and some clumsiness, the first two episodes are encouraging and teeming with good intentions. The kung-fu orientation (teased by the showrunner) is well and truly assumed, and the series offers a new approach to a more self-confident Jedi Order, with its representatives who change as a police officer. As for the new characters, if they are uneven, we will salute the writing of Master Sol, a firm Jedi, but full of empathy, to the point of doubt. A great way to break the myth of the Jedi Master and his ability to fight. à proscribe any form of sentimentalism. As is often the case with Disney, these two episodes are littered with small references and easter eggs to the rest of the saga, and even beyond. Return in seven points.

There is also an Ithorian, a species whose head is shaped like a hammer, as a bartender. A kung fu fight then begins between Mae (Amandla Stenberg) and Jedi Indara, played by Carrie-Anne Moss, the Trinity of Matrix. Enough to logically make the connection.
