Amandla Stenberg didn’t share anything about her character, but she’s likely the main character of the female-centric series. Leslye Headland is developing “The Acolyte,” which takes place during the High Republic Era, 100 years before the events of “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” Headland said that it will be a “mystery thriller” and it will have eight episodes.

“Andor” and “Ahsoka” will be the next two “Star Wars” shows to stream on Disney+. Also in development is “Skeleton Crew” starring Jude Law.
