“Star Wars: The Acolyte” premiere: Stars pose with Kelnacca

The stars of the new Disney+ series posed on the red carpet at the “Star Wars: The Acolyte” premiere in London, led by a Wookiee.

On June 5th, the eagerly awaited next “Star Wars” series “The Acolyte” will start in Germany on Disney+. The London premiere of the streaming series took place last Tuesday (May 28th). The cast of the new “Star Wars” addition gathered at the Odeon Luxe Leicester Square. Amandla Stenberg (25), who plays the “mysterious young woman” Mae in the series, appeared in an earth-tone cut-out dress and exuded Princess Leia vibes with her long braided pigtail. But the actress was not the only one to attract attention with her striking look on the red carpet.

Kelnacca (Joonas Suotamo, 37) posed next to his co-stars and clearly towered over them. In the series, he is a Wookiee Jedi master who has “retired to the jungles of Khofar. He is a loner and leads a secluded life.”

“Star Wars: The Acolyte”: What it’s about

The live-action series, for which “Matryoshka” co-series creator Leslye Headland (44) is responsible, takes place around 100 years before the events of “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace”. Jedi Master Sol, played by “Squid Game” star Lee Jung-jae (51), investigates a mysterious series of crimes in the sci-fi show and comes across terrifying secrets. The South Korean actor was also present at the premiere in London and appeared in an all-white look.

Other cast premiere guests included Rebecca Henderson (43), Manny Jacinto (36), Dafne Keen (19) and Charlie Barnett (36) as well as Leslye Headland. The series creator had been building up anticipation for the series in recent weeks. She promises “Star Wars” fans references to various eras of the Star Wars saga. “It’s a series that contains everything I wanted to explore: I wanted to include expanded universe stuff, references to the original trilogy, ‘The Phantom Menace’, the Disney sequel trilogy… it’s absolutely jam-packed,” she explained in April.
