Where Does The Acolyte Fit in the Star Wars Timeline

In Short
  • Star Wars: The Acolyte is set 100 years before the Prequel Trilogy.
  • We will get to see the rise of the Sith Order in this series.
  • Star Wars: The Acolyte is set to release on July 4, 2024.

In an ever-expanding galaxy far away, there is always a new story to tell in the Star Wars universe. This coming July, the Star Wars franchise is bringing in a new show titled ‘Star Wars: Acolyte’. However, this show is not going to bring us any familiar faces since it is set in a very different time than the Star Wars Saga we know of took place. Now the big question here is, what is that timeline? Where does The Acolyte fit in the Star Wars timeline? Let’s find out.

The Acolyte Takes Place 100 Years Before The Prequel Trilogy

Star Wars: The Acolyte takes place during the High Republic Era which is known to be 100 Years before the events we saw unfold in The Phantom Menace which is the first movie in the Star Wars timeline. In this series, we are going to witness the rise of the Sith Order and probably get introduced to Ajunta Pall, the first Sith Lord in the lore of Star Wars. If we look at the new trailer for The Acolyte, there is a scene where a character states, “Peace Is a lie”. This sentence is the first line of the Sith code which goes like this-

Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory.

Based on this slight revelation, we can say that this series could show us the live-action version of the tale of the first Sith Order declaring war on the Jedi Order during the Hundred-Year Darkness.

The Acolyte Will Show Us The Origin of The Sith Order

As mentioned above, Star Wars: The Acolyte is set during the High Republic Era. This time was a hundred years before the setting of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, the first movie in the prequel trilogy. The trailer for Star Wars: The Acolyte showed us Master Sol investigating Jedi murders which seem to be carried out by Mae, Master Sol’s former student. Along with this, something dark and ominous is rising in the galaxy which is revealed to be a Sith Lord whose identity has not been revealed yet.

Star Wars: The Acolyte will show us the rise of The Sith Order. However, this is purely based on what we saw in the trailers, so let’s wait till July 4, 2024, to see what the franchise is bringing us this time!
