Grammy Award-Winner Victoria Monét Lends Her Voice to The Acolyte

In The Acolyte, Jodie Turner-Smith’s Mother Aniseya is Mothering

Not all witches are sisters of Dathomir.

When The Acolyte creator Leslye Headland first started writing her Star Wars series — the first three episodes are now streaming on Disney+, — she was inspired by Mother Talzin and her coven from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. But it was Dave Filoni, who worked alongside Star Wars creator George Lucas on the animated show, who helped guide Headland in the creation of her own in-world coven led by Mother Aniseya (Jodie Turner-Smith).

Dave Filoni very quickly became kind of a mentor of mine in terms of navigating what this part of the timeline would be like for both the Jedi and then other Force users,” Headland says. “It was kind of this ‘A-ha!’ moment for me when he told me, ‘You know, not

It’s like…something out of a dream. (I hope you read that in Luke Skywalker’s voice.)

This week, the story of The Acolyte steps away from the moody thriller that unfolded last week for a flashback sequence that gives us more insight into the complexities of Mae and Osha’s sibling bond and tragic past. Some 16 years prior to Mae’s killing spree,

The Acolyte’s Charlie Barnett is Here for the Yord Horde

Charlie Barnett’s family was the first to share the news: the internet was abuzz with a legion of fans calling themselves the Yord Horde.

In the days since the series premiere of The Acolyte, with the first three episodes now streaming on Disney+, Barnett, who plays Jedi Knight Yord Fandar in the show, has delighted in everyone sharing their favorite Yord memes with the popular hashtag. “A lot of friends and family have been introducing me to my Yord Horde-om,” Barnett tells StarWars.com. From Yorder 66 to Yorda and Yorddle — which, exactly as they sound, are just Yord’s face pasted on Yoda and Yaddle — and one of Barnett’s favorites, the Yord Fiesta, people can’t stop making Yord-based puns and celebrating their love of this new Jedi Knight.

What is the Barash Vow?

While the Jedi Order has clear and strict rules for its members, the path for every Jedi remains unique. In The Acolyte’s second episode, fans of Star Wars comics may have recognized the term Barash Vow from the scene where the assassin Mae confronts Jedi Master Torbin. But what does it mean?

Individuals who take the Barash Vow remain Jedi, but voluntarily choose to temporarily stop taking action on behalf of the Order. Author Charles Soule, who created the Barash Vow, described Jedi who take it as those “who feel they have done something deeply wrong — particularly a misinterpretation of what they believe the Force wanted them to do — and while they don’t leave the Order, they decide to sit and listen to the Force until they better understand

Star Wars Outlaws’ Julian Gerighty Talks Kay Vess’ Journey: “This Is a Survival Story”

If you caught the Star Wars Outlaws trailers during Ubisoft Forward, you probably witnessed the jaw-dropping skills of a scoundrel who could easily be deemed a master of stealth. A maestro of deception. A paragon of perception. A… little guy.

That’s right, we’re talking about Nix, Kay Vess’ co-protagonist in the game and one very courageous critter. And Julian Gerighty, creative director of Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment, has something very important to tell you about the delightful merqaal.

“[Nix is] a bulletproof companion,” Gerighty reveals to StarWars.com. That’s right, you won’t have to worry about losing your furry-slash-scaly friend as you travel the galaxy together. Phew.

Recently, Gerighty sat down to chat about everything we saw during Ubisoft Forward, including Nix’s best friend Kay Vess, the variety of skills she learns as she journeys across
