    On March 18, Disney announced that The Acolyte, which stars Amandla Stenberg and Lee Jung-jae, will debut on June 4.

    "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," Disney previously announced. Amandla will play the former Padawan while Lee Jung-jae is her Jedi Master.

    They'll be joined by a stellar cast that includes Manny Jacinto, Jodie Turner-Smith, Charlie Barnett, and Carrie-Anne Moss.

    Notably, it wasn't just the release date that Disney announced on Monday. The series' trailer is dropping tomorrow, and they also revealed the show's poster. The poster is kind of everything, depicting a Sith lightsaber, except it's not red light. It's a streak of what looks like blood. "In an age of light a darkness rises," the poster also reads.
