TRAILER: The Acolyte (2024)

Today, Saturday, May the Fourth, the official Star Wars YouTube released a new Acolyte trailer. This clip runs almost two minutes and features a lot of new footage from the upcoming Disney+ series. We see Master Sol (Lee Jung-jae) seek to recruit his former Padawan Mae (Amandla Stenberg), Jodie Turner-Smith’s witch propagandizing, and Master Indara (Carrie-Anne Moss) in action. Check it out here:

I know it’s Star Wars Day, but they’re doing a preview of The Acolyte with The Phantom Menace in theaters all weekend. As such, I’m surprised to see a new trailer, and I hope it’s different from that preview. I’m seeing The Phantom Menace tomorrow, so I’ll know by then. This is a mostly good trailer, better than the others we’ve seen for this series. The only part I hated was Turner-Smith’s character talking about destiny. Yes, dummy, we know the Force doesn’t force you into an inevitable destiny. Nobody has argued that ever, not even the Jedi. You have a destiny, but you don’t have to follow it. I don’t think it was Palpatine’s destiny to enslave the entire galaxy; that’s called a choice, babe. I can already tell this character is going to be a lot of fun. Anyway, the action looks good, and so far, I enjoy the other characters from the little we’ve seen. I’m glad this trailer is mostly new material, and I think the show *looks* good; I’m worried about it for other reasons. But I will watch it, and I sincerely hope I’m surprised. 

But what do you think about this new Acolyte trailer? Let us know in the comments! Happy May the Fourth!
