Welcome back Rebel Scum! With all of the news dropping this past May 4th weekend, this new The Acolyte trailer got inadvertently buried. Check out the final trailer before the series premieres on Disney+ June 4th.

The mystery of The Acolyte deepens. With one month left before the premiere, today a new trailer for the Star Wars series shed some light on the terrifying figure carrying a red-bladed lightsaber in the Disney+ title.

But beyond the intriguing and fearsome visage glimpsed in the final moments, showrunner Leslye Headland is tight-lipped about the newcomer. “I’ll just say that they're my favorite character,” Headland tells

In addition to the final trailer, new key art for the series has also arrived in time for Star Wars Day. The poster showcases the array of characters we’ll meet, featuring the assassin Mae, Master Sol, Master Indara, the Wookiee Master Kelnacca, Master Vernestra Rwoh, and the rest of the Jedi Order in its prime. “I hope audiences embrace the duality that exists in every character in the show,” Headland says. “The show is an onion. Each episode peels away to reveal something else. I hope the experience of watching it is both suspenseful and satisfying.”

For more on the series, explore the teaser key art and trailer, read Headland’s first interview with, and discover three new entries in the Databank: Pip, Master Torbin, and the Polan.
The final poster for the series has also been released featuring the characters from the show.
