Star Wars: The Acolyte, Disney's bet

À 10 days before its release on Disney+, the next series Star Wars: The Acolyte intrigues as much as it worries. And for good reason, the latest projects linked to the galaxy far, far away did not shine. by their quality and their originality. Obi-Wan, The Book of Boba Fett, and to a lesser extent Ahsoka,have caused a certain weariness among the fans.

But by choosing to place his story within Set in the era of the High Republic, 100 before the prequel and exploring the extended universe of Star Wars, Disney and showrunner Leslye Headland are taking a worthy risk. Free ourselves from the legacy left behind by George Lucas is perhaps what an entirefanbasehas been waiting for.

Headlan also explained why she chose this specific time period to tell her Star Wars story: “There were two reasons why I wanted to place it in this time period It was a very special and far from the prequels. Firstly, I didn't want to play with any canon. The other thing I liked about this period was the absence of legacy characters. ;s. I was too nervous to face them, but also, I have the impression that we saw a lot of them [La Haute Republique] seemed like a sandbox in which I could easily jump in live-action, you did not see the Sith in their best light, largely overwhelmed by the number of Jedi present in the universe. This seemed interesting to me. to explore that.”
