“You carry a Jedi weapon, but you are no Jedi.” Disney+ has revealed a behind-the-scenes featurette for the Star Wars series called The Acolyte, which will start streaming in June. Showrun by Bachelorette and “Russian Doll” creator Leslye Headland. At the end of the High Republic era in a time of “shadowy secrets and emerging dark side powers”, approximately 100 years before The Phantom Menace. A former Padawan reunites with her Jedi Master to investigate a series of crimes against Jedi, but the forces they confront are more sinister than they ever anticipated. This series stars Amandla Stenberg as Mae, Manny Jacinto, Dafne Keen, Jodie Turner-Smith, Rebecca Henderson, Charlie Barnett, Margarita Levieva, Dean-Charles Chapman, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jedi master Indara, and Joonas Suotamo as Wookiee Jedi master Kelnacca. This video focuses on talented Korean actor Lee Jung-jae as Jedi master Sol (who they all refer to as “JJ”). His appearance in this series as Sol is one of the main reasons I’m excited to watch this. I dig him and I’m glad they gave him a seriously legit role in the Star Wars universe. Learn more below.

Here’s the official “Sol of the Jedi” featurette for Star Wars’ The Acolyte series, direct from YouTube:
