Disney+ has announced the cast for their upcoming Star Wars series "The Acolyte". The project hails from Lucasfilm. 

Joining the previously announced Amandla Stenberg ("The Hate U Give") are Emmy Award-winner Lee Jung-jae ("Squid Game"), Manny Jacinto ("Nine Perfect Strangers"), Dafne Keen ("His Dark Materials"), Jodie Turner-Smith ("Queen & Slim"), Rebecca Henderson ("Inventing Anna"), Charlie Barnett ("Russian Doll"), Dean-Charles Chapman ("1917") and Carrie-Anne Moss ("The Matrix").

From creator, showrunner, and executive producer Leslye Headland ("Russian Doll"), "The Acolyte" has begun production in the U.K. The executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Simon Emanuel, Jeff F. King, and Jason Micallef. Rayne Roberts and Damian Anderson are producing. Headland will also direct the series pilot.

"The Acolyte" is a mystery-thriller that will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic era. A former Padawan reunites with her Jedi Master to investigate a series of crimes, but the forces they confront are more sinister than they ever anticipated. 

The series will stream exclusively on Disney+, and is set for an August 2023 release date.
