During Star Wars Celebration 2023, which is taking place in London this weekend, Disney officially confirmed that “The Acolyte”, an upcoming Original Star Wars series from Lucasfilm, is coming to Disney+ in 2024.
Bob Iger also recently announced this during a Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference a few weeks ago.
Disney also released a logo for the upcoming series, which you can see above.

A former Padawan reunites with her Jedi Master to investigate a series of crimes, but the forces they confront are more sinister than they ever anticipated.
