When does The Acolyte happen?

The Acolyte happens 100 years earlier than Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. When you’re a die-hard Star Wars nerd meaning 132 BBY (Earlier than The Battle of Yavin). The present takes place when Jedis had been at their peak.

Showrunner Leslye Headland wished to discover a brand new aspect of the Star Wars universe that we’ve by no means seen earlier than. “If Star Wars is concerning the underdog versus the establishment, [in The Acolyte] the Jedi are the establishment,” Headland advised StarWars.com. “I used to be so desirous about a storyline the place the Jedi had been on the peak of their energy — and I don’t imply The Phantom Menace, as a result of at that time, there’s a Sith Lord within the Senate that they’re not choosing up on.” When you assume Siths shall be regularly encountered within the collection, you’ll be mistaken. She likens it to seeing a velociraptor within the wild. “Prefer it’s a factor I’ve heard of, but it surely’s not a factor that you’d ever contemplate you’d be interacting with.”
