The Acolyte’s premiere episode drove 11.1 million views* globally

After taking a lightspeed trip to 4.8 million views in one day, The Acolyte’s premiere episode drove 11.1 million views* globally based on five days of streaming, maintaining its status as the biggest series premiere on Disney+ of 2024.

 

Set during the High Republic Era of the Star Wars saga, The Acolyte tells the story of an investigation into a shocking crime spree that pits a respected Jedi master against a dangerous warrior from his past.

 

The first episode thrusts viewers right into the action with a gripping fight scene that sets off the central mystery of the series.

“I was very interested in telling a story about the Sith,” Leslye Headland, creator and executive producer of The Acolyte, said. “The logical conclusion would be to set this show in a time period where the Sith are the underdogs.”

 

The first two episodes of The Acolyte are currently streaming on Disney+, and new episodes will debut in the Philippines every Wednesday through July 17.


 

Star Wars fans can find the rest of the sprawling saga — from the original trilogy to the latest series — on Disney+.

 

Created and executive produced by Headland, The Acolyte stars Lee Jung-jae, Amandla Stenberg, Charlie Barnett, Manny Jacinto, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Carrie-Anne Moss.
