The Acolyte’s first trailer teases a deadly disturbance in the Force

Set in Star Wars’ High Republic era long before the events of The Phantom Menace, The Acolyte will tell the story of how a revered Jedi Master’s (Lee Jung-jae) investigation into a string of grisly murders brings him face-to-face with a lethal warrior (Amandla Stenberg) from his past. Stenberg’s character definitely seems like they might be the murderer in question as they pull knives on yet another Jedi (Carrie-Anne Moss) in a canteen on what appears to be a desert planet. Though Stenberg’s character doesn’t seem to be using the Force all that much, they’re skilled enough with blades to give multiple Jedi runs for their money in combat.

Though it’s clear that those strong in the dark side of the Force are working toward something, the trailer makes it hard to suss out what their goal is — especially in an age where there are so many Jedi roaming the universe. But given what we know is fated to happen after The Acolyte’s story is through, it feels safe to assume that the show is going to be a bloodbath when it premieres on June 4th.
