Who is the Sith Lord in Star Wars: The Acolyte

In Short
  •  The new trailer for Star Wars: The Acolyte introduced a new Sith Lord as the main villain.
  • His identity is not revealed but our best guess is it could be Darth Plagueis.
  • Star Wars will start streaming on Disney Plus on July 4, 2024.

Throughout the lore of Star Wars, the one major conflict that has dictated the entire franchise is the dynamic between The Force and The Dark Side of The Force. Two factions represent each of them, The Jedi Order and The Sith Order respectively. However, throughout time, the Dark Side has been the driving force of other factions like The Empire and The First Order. Star Wars: The Acolyte takes us to the first of these orders, i.e. The Sith Order, and will show us the origin of it. In the trailer for Star Wars Acolyte, we see a Sith Lord Whose identity has not been revealed to us and in this article, I bring forward my best guess on who is The Sith Lord in Star Wars: Acolyte.

The Sith Lord in The Acolyte Could Be Darth Plagueis

As the lead villain in Star Wars: The Acolyte was revealed, some people assumed that it could be a young Palpatine. However, this theory is kind of impractical since the events happening in Star Wars: The Acolyte took place more than 100 years ago before we got introduced to Palpatine. However, In Star Wars: Revenge of The Sith, Palpatine talks about his Master, Darth Plagueis who was so strong with the Dark Side of The Force that he could control death.

The Sith Lord we see in the trailer for Star Wars: The Acolyte could be Darth Plagueis because according to the timeline, he would fit perfectly when The Acolyte is taking place. In the trailer, we see a terrifying villain wearing a zipped mask, and the trailer ends right where Master Sol asks the villain “What are you?”. The villain, who I am assuming to be Darth Plagueis, would be the Sith Lord of the High Republic Era and will have some extraordinary powers.

Another guess I have is Ajunta Pall. Since The Acolyte is most probably dealing with the origin of The Sith Order, the main antagonist of the series could be the first Sith Lord, Ajunta Pall.

However, these are just assumptions based on the details we could scavenge from the trailer and the overall Star Wars timeline. If they bring in one of these characters that would be pretty cool but there is a possibility that we might get to see a brand-new character altogether. What do you guys think about this? Let me know in the comments and while we wait for July 4, 2024, stay tuned!
