New details about The Acolyte, a Star Wars series that takes place during the High Republic era, has dropped from the showrunner Leslye Headland.

From Collider, here’s what Leslye Headland said:

A lot of those characters [from the Skywalker Saga] haven’t even been born yet. We’re taking a look at the political and personal and spiritual things that came up in a time period that we don’t know much about. My question when watching The Phantom Menace was always like, ‘Well, how did things get to this point?’ How did we get to a point where a Sith lord can infiltrate the Senate and none of the Jedi pick up on it? Like, what went wrong? What are the scenarios that led us to this moment?

We actually use the term the Renaissance, or the Age of Enlightenment [for the High Republic]. The Jedi uniforms are gold and white, and it’s almost like they would never get dirty. They would never be out and about. The idea is that they could have these types of uniforms because that’s how little they’re getting into skirmishes.

There’s no release date yet of The Acolyte, but it was nice to get some new info. I wonder how the show will look aesthetically since this is the first live-action High Republic era piece. I’ll be looking forward to more details regarding the series.
