Disney’s new Star Wars project, “The Acolyte,” finally premiered on Disney+ on June 4, 2024, with two episodes. It has quickly become one of the most talked-about and controversial Star Wars projects to date. Even before its premiere, the series stirred controversy, with showrunner Leslye Headland making comments about the show and the franchise that some fans found outrageous. The reactions have been highly dynamic, sparking daily debates among fans.

On the production side, the team continues to tease upcoming content. From what we’ve gathered, Episode 5, set to be released on June 25, 2024, promises some exciting fight scenes that fans won’t want to miss.

Leslye Headland has been making headlines with her discussions about the show, sparking numerous reactions. While some of her statements have been controversial, the focus of this report is an exciting teaser for Episode 5, the next episode to air. In a recent interview with Amandla Stenberg, one of the series’ stars, Headland revealed that Episode 5 will feature a thrilling and intense fight scene:

Leslye Headland: “I will say that when you get to episode 5, we mix it up. There’s one fight that I was thinking specifically that you have that’s hand combat, and it’s very down and dirty and scrappy, if you will.”

Amandla Stenberg: “I don’t want to say too much, but the stunt or sequence that I’m the proudest of is a girl fight that gets gnarly. “

According to earlier reports on our site, “The Acolyte” aims to surpass the iconic Darth Maul fight scene from “The Phantom Menace,” a highly ambitious goal considering that fight is one of the best in the franchise, known for its magnificent choreography.

We know the upcoming fight will feature female characters and that Amandla Stenberg had to perform some impressive stunts, making it sound very promising. However, “The Acolyte” has not fully met fans’ expectations so far, so we’ll have to wait and see how it all unfolds.

As for who will be fighting, it remains unclear at this time. Many fans speculate that it could be the anticipated showdown between Dafne Keen’s Jecki Lon and Stenberg’s Mae, though this is just speculation for now.
