The arrival of this cult Jedi in The Acolyte could hide a huge twist

Published

on

Episode 4 of The Acolyte has just been broadcast, and fans have witnessed the intriguing and unexpected appearance of a cult Jedi from the Star Wars prelogy. An arrival which could well hide a twist that is surprising to say the least, according to some.

We’re halfway through the Star Wars series, and it’s safe to say that The Acolyte has completely divided fan opinion. Eliminating its biggest name in the first five minutes, diversifying its cast, and making the big mystery incredibly easy to guess all contributed to mixed feelings.

However, Episode 4 revealed an unexpected easter egg for Star Wars fans, in the form of a cameo appearance. Ki-Adi-Mundi, a member of the Jedi Order first seen in the prequel trilogy (also called prelogy) and The Clone Warsappears in a young version during a meeting about Mae’s capture.

While this cameo got fans talking, some believe his nefarious beliefs regarding the Sith could lead to bigger complications in the long run.

In Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999), Ki-Adi-Mundi states that “The Sith have been extinct for a millennium”which calls into question the plot of the prequel series The Acolyte.

Given that the new Star Wars series is set in 132 BBY, this could mean that fans will finally get an answer that explains why he thought that. It’s clear this will continue to cause confusion, but some believe his remarks may have simply been misinterpreted.

“I always understood that the Jedi believed that the Sith were extinct, even though they were in the shadows. (As we know, they were)”posted a fan on Reddit.

“So the Sith are active during the High Republic era. Probably those who encounter them are not destined to stay long in the world of the living.”

Another suggested: “Or the Jedi Council could keep this a secret. So as not to frighten the order. And that’s what leads to their incompetence during the Clone Wars.”

“A millennium is 1000 years. The Sith are definitely there but hidden. Maybe towards the end of the High Republic era, LucasFilm will lift the lid a little on what they’ve been up to,” added a third.

While we will have to wait until next week to find out if there is any clarification, the chances of seeing Ki-Adi-Mundi again in The Acolyte are already thin.

As Vernestra says, the Jedi Order wants to prevent the High Council from knowing about the chaos caused by Mae. So this means that the inclusion of other additional Jedi and meetings like the one in Episode 4 might be rare.
