‘Star Wars: The Acolyte’ marks the next chapter in the ‘Star Wars’ saga, debuting on Disney+ on June 4th. Promising a fresh and distinct adventure, the series is set during the High Republic Era, known as the Golden Age of the Jedi Order.

Showrunner Headland appears keen on exploring a narrative where the Force is not solely the domain of the Jedi, hinting at a nuanced portrayal where even they can embody darkness given the right circumstances.

Today, the social embargo for the show was lifted, allowing some fans to catch the first two (or four) episodes. Excitement was high for their reactions. While the show has sparked mixed feelings among the public, particularly due to some controversial statements by Headland, its female-led nature, the introduction of lightwhips, and other elements perceived as influenced by DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion), positive feedback is dominating the conversation.

Initial reviews commend the series for its captivating mystery, accomplished cast, and thrilling action sequences.

While the bulk of reactions leaned toward positivity, there are also mixed reviews in the mix.
