Disney+ is gearing up for another Star Wars show and this one is different than any other series in the franchise. With Star Wars spanning over decades and more than 10 movies and multiple shows, it’s hard to believe there are people out there who haven’t seen at least one project. However, that’s the case with some writers on the newest Disney+ show, The Acolyte, and showrunner Leslye Headland explains why.
With the Star Wars franchise, not everyone will have the same connections to Star Wars or the same experience. Having someone on the writing staff with barely any knowledge of the franchise was basically like a breath of fresh air. Headland explained her reaction to the feedback she got from the writer:
That type of feedback from a fresh set of eyes can mean wonders and really give a fresh perspective on the franchise and certain characters about what they’re doing, especially considering how passionate Star Wars fans are. With Leslye Headland’s experience with Star Wars and other filmography, she seems to know what she’s doing and it will be interesting to see what happens in Star Wars: The Acolyte.
Details about The Acolyte are few and far between at this point, and the next live-action Star Wars series on the horizon is The Book of Boba Fett. Other series in the works are Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan Kenobi, Diego Luna's Andor, and Season 3 of The Mandalorian, among others. Be sure to check out Disney+ for all your Star Wars needs during the wait for The Acolyte!
