It’s sometimes crazy to think how long it takes for official announcements to make their way online after we first hear about a story. After first being hinted at back in December, there was a story about actress Amandla Stenberg joining the upcoming Star Wars series The Acolyte. While things were quiet on the project, just as San Diego Comic-Con is making the rounds, Star Wars and Lucasfilm have confirmed her casting for the project.
They don’t reveal any details, however, as we still don’t know what the exact story is about and what role she might be taking on in the Disney+ series. There have been a few rumors hinting that it’ll be a sith-based storyline; exciting for many wishing thee dark side of the Force getting a bit more attention.
