What Is The Acolyte All About?

Leslye Headland has created The Acolyte and she is also the showrunner. The storyline takes place when the era of the High Republic was coming to an end. It happened a century before the timeline of the first film in the franchise, Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. A Jedi master is the main protagonist of this series who is investigating a crime.

The Acolyte premiered on June 4th, 2024 on Disney+. Headland, Jeff F. King, Kathleen Kennedy, Jason Micallef and Simon Emanuel are the executive producers of this show.

Meanwhile, Sol is unable to make contact with the council of Jedi through the Jedi ship. It’s because of some interference. But the Coruscant gets the news about the defeat of the entire team. Later, Bazil attacks Mae but she subdues him and is able to get the power back. Sol still thinks she is Osha but it changes after they talk about the Brendok attack.

She is stunned by him just when the power comes back. Some Jedis and Vernestra reach the place and think that it was done by some Jedi. One of them guesses it to be Sol since he is only this powerful. Towards the end, Mae opens her eyes and sees Sol in front of her who says he will tell her everything about Brendok.

What To Expect From The Acolyte Episode 7?

The Acolyte Episode 7 is helmed by Kogonada while the writers include Jasmyne Flournoy, Jen Richards, and Charmaine DeGraté. It will finally showcase Sol opening up to Mae about the mysteries surrounding the tragic event that happened a long time ago and changed their lives forever.

We have been shown that Mae also doesn’t know about that event so she will be listening to all of it in The Acolyte Episode 7.

The viewers will know the things that took place in Brendok. Because of the helmet of Qimir, Osha might also find out about the events of her childhood. All these things were hinted at when the earlier episode was ending. Because of these revelations that will happen, the upcoming episode is really anticipated and it’s also very exciting in a genuine way.

Viewers are also expecting these truth bombs to lead to some violence if they are like that. So we might get to see some more fights after the massacre that took place in the prior episode. Overall, fans are eager to know about the origin of these characters and the truth of Brendok.
