Is The Acolyte actually any good? Early reviews for the upcoming Star Wars series on social media give fans a taste of what to expect from the Disney Plus series.

All eyes have been on The Acolyte. After a rough few years for the Star Wars brand, fans have been hoping this will finally be the project to put the franchise back into the good graces of the Disney Plus viewing audience. With the first reviews for the series now out on social media, have those hopes been met?

It seems The Acolyte has provided everything fans wanted out of a grittier Star Wars series in spades. While it’s possible the series stumbles in its last few episodes, as certain Disney Plus shows often do, such a strong start promises a fertile new era for the franchise to explore on the small screen.

The Acolyte Is A New Era For Star Wars

The Acolyte may be a fresh start for Star Wars in more ways than one. Firstly, the Disney Plus series is set during the High Republic era, which is a time period often ignored by live-action adaptations of the franchise. The positive reviews are also a great break from the critical beating the universe has been taking outside of Andor.

More importantly, The Acolyte may be ushering in a new era of Star Wars shows entirely disconnected from what came before it. This is what many enjoyed about the earlier seasons of The Mandalorian, and now seems to be coming back through projects like The Acolyte and Skeleton Crew. Though fans should know Star Wars has a history of grappling defeat from the jaws of victory!

The Acolyte is set to release June 4, 2024 on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Star Wars franchise and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
