“Star Wars: The Acolyte” is the upcoming live-action TV series described as a martial arts-influenced mystery-thriller that “…will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the “High Republic’ streaming in 2024 on Disney +:
The new series is being showrun by Leslye Headland (“Russian Doll”) with Amandla Stenberg (“The Hunger Games”) in negotiations to star. Producers are also looking to cast identical twins as the character ‘Miri’.
"Just because my show is technically, yes, 'female-centric', meaning it centers around a female protagonist, I don't think that necessarily excludes men from that space," said Headland.
