The Acolyte is the upcoming Star Wars series I am most excited for. One of the reasons why I’m really looking forward to it is because it’s going to explore a period in Star Wars lore that we haven’t seen before on the screen.
This show will take place during the last days of the High Republic. This is a time period which is supposed to be 200 years before the events of The Skywalker Saga. In other words, this show should be taking place roughly 200 years before A New Hope.
The High Republic was the golden age of both the Galactic Senate and the Jedi Order. One of the Jedi who should be around during that time would be Yoda. He told Luke in A New Hope that he trained Jedi Knights for over 800 years, so he should be getting close to his prime during the High Republic era.
The Star Wars show The Acolyte could see Yoda in some capacity
It was said by Lucasfilm’s President, Kathleen Kennedy at the Disney Investor’s Day presentation that The Acolyte will focus on “emerging dark side powers in the final days of the High Republic era”. With this in mind, it’s not a leap to think that this series could feature Yoda in some capacity. Maybe we might get to see him really kick some Sith butt in this show, which I am very much ready for.
