Logan’s Dafne Keene Rumored for ‘The Acolyte’ Disney+ Series

Dafne Keen (Logan) is rumored to have joined the upcoming Star Wars Disney+ Original series “The Acolyte.”

The news comes from the latest episode of The Hot Mic podcast in which co-hosts Jeff Sneider and Jon Rocha revealed that the actress has secretly been cast in the upcoming series.

As always, since nothing has been confirmed by Lucasfilm or Disney, we will treat this as a rumor for now.

“The Acolyte” has been described as a female-driven, action mystery thriller, with martial art elements that will take us into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging Dark Side powers in the final days of the High Republic Era.  The series is said to take place in a different part of the Star Wars timeline than other projects.

Amandla Stenberg has been confirmed to star and Lee Jung-Jae (Squid Game) will star as the male lead.  Additionally, Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim, Anne Boleyn) and Manny Jacinto (The Good Place) will star in the new Star Wars project.  It was also recently reported that Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll) is in final negotiations to join the project.

Leslye Headland (Russian Doll) is serving as the series showrunner.

Filming on “The Acolyte” is currently underway at Shinfield Studios in Berkshire and is expected to continue until May.

The series is expected to release on Disney+ in 2024.
