Predating the events of "The Phantom Menace" by around 100 years, new Star Wars spin-off "The Acolyte" shows what life was like long before Anakin, Luke, Leia, Chewie and Han turned up in that famous galaxy far, far away. You can watch "The Acolyte" on Disney Plus around the world.

'The Acolyte' streaming details

Time: 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT / 2 a.m. BST (Wed) / 11 a.m. AEST (Wed)

Global stream — Disney+

Hot off the heels of "Ahsoka", "The Acolyte" takes us back to the High Republic era, a time when the Jedi Order were at the peak of their powers. There we find Jedi Master Sol (Lee Jung-jae of "Squid Game") investigating a series of crimes that lead him back to his own protégé, Mae (Amandla Stenberg). This former Padawan is now a warrior in her own right, but is she friend or foe?

Perhaps the most eye-catching detail of the "The Acolyte" trailer is Carrie-Anne Moss — a.k.a. Trinity from "The Matrix" — wielding a lightsaber as Jedi Master Indara. In terms of cool factor, it's probably up there with Darth Maul's double-bladed weapon in "The Phantom Menace".

Ready to dive back into the eternal battle between the good and dark sides of the Force? This article explains all you need to know about how to watch "The Acolyte" online, including information on release dates, full cast and that stunning official trailer.
