The drama is set in the final days of the High Republic era and tells the story of a former Padawan who reunites with her Jedi Master to investigate a series of crimes, but the forces they confront are more sinister than they ever anticipated. Headland is also executive producing the project with Kathleen Kennedy (Jurassic Park, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial), Simon Emanuel (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny), Jeff F. King (The Umbrella Academy, Blindspot) and Jason Micallef (Heathers, Butter). The Acolyte will premiere this year on Disney+.
