The Star Wars universe expands with its new series The Acolytebut where does this series fit into the timeline?

If you love epic lightsaber duels and you're a fan of Sith Lords, then The Acolyte will most certainly be made for you. Because the next Star Wars series is already shaping up to be one of the most anticipated titles of this summer 2024, and in particular for fans of Squid Game.

The Disney+ series has just unveiled its first official trailer which should delight fans of the franchise as the galaxy far, far away prepares to embark on one of its next original projects in filming real.

However, as impatient as fans may be, many are wondering where The Acolyte in the Star Wars timeline. So let's examine when the series takes place in this now cult universe.

Where does The Acolyte fit in the timeline of the Star Wars universe?

The Acolyte takes place 100 years before the events of Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999), the first prelogy part.

While the events of the live-action Star Wars projects take place in the Skywalker Era, The Acolyte takes place well before the original films.

The series will allow viewers to get a glimpse of what the High Republic era was like when the Galactic Republic, the governing body of the universe, and the Jedi Order were at the height of their power.

The Acolyte dares to go where no other live-action Star Wars project has gone before, as it will show how the Sith Order, the enemies of the Jedi, grew in power before their takeover just before the start of the trilogy original.

Showrunner Leslye Headland told The Hollywood Reporter that she saw the series as a “family conflict,” attempting to explore the “fissures” within the Jedi institution that made them so susceptible to Sith interference when the prequel trilogy begins. A universe that continues to expand, fans having recently learned that this film project that we thought was abandoned is finally back.
