TV: New Star Wars Series “The Acolyte” to Have a Queer Perspective

Star Wars the Acolyte

Amandla Stenberg is set to star in The Acolyte, a new Stars Wars TV series spearheaded by a gay woman.

Written, directed and executive-produced by Russian Doll co-creator Lesyle Headland, the show will focus on the emergence of dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic, an era that began roughly 200 years before the events of Episode I: The Phantom Menace kicked off the Skywalker saga.

Details for Stenberg’s character are yet to be revealed, but it’s reported that the Disney Plus show will bring a much-needed queer perspective to the successful franchise.
