It has been announced that Dafne Keen (His Dark Materials), Rebecca Henderson (Inventing Anna), Dean-Charles Chapman (1917), and Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) have officially joined the Star Wars project along with previously revealed cast members Manny Jacinto, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Charlie Barnett.
In addition, the first official behind-the-scenes photo from the U.K. set of the Disney+ show has also been revealed. In The Acolyte set photo, Stenberg and Lee can be seen receiving directions from showrunner Leslye Headland, who has been developing the series since 2020.
The Acolyte is defined as a mystery-thriller that will take fans into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and arising dark-side powers that will be set within the last days of the High Republic era. Further details about its characters haven’t been announced yet, but the project title references a Sith in the beginning stages of their training under a Sith Lord.
