How Star Wars: KOTOR II Influenced The Acolyte

The Acolyte creator Leslye Headland has revealed that the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II video game heavily inspired the upcoming Disney+ series. The Amandla Stenberg-led Star Wars series is scheduled to hit the streamer on June 4.

A longtime Star Wars fan, Headland revealed in an interview with Collider that she took inspiration from the iconic video game Knights of the Old Republic II and that Kreia/Darth Traya served as her biggest inspiration in creating the series.

“The biggest inspiration for me was Kreia/Darth Traya in Knights of the Old Republic 2,” said Headland. “A character that when I first encountered her playing the game, I was really blown away by her characterization as well as the journey that she took the protagonist through.”

The creator added, “It felt like a type of character that I would be interested in building a narrative around , so that was kind of what I was bringing to it in addition to my overall fandom. That was the thing that I kind of picked up on when I was brainstorming about this.”

What is The Acolyte about?

A part of the Star Wars franchise, The Acolyte — set at the end of the High Republic era — will center on former Padawan Mae, who is now considered a threat. The series will see her reunite with her Jedi Master in order to investigate a series of crimes. However, they will soon discover that “the forces they confront are more sinister than they ever anticipated.”

Joining Stenberg are Lee Jung-jae as Sol, Manny Jacinto as Qimir, Jodie Turner-Smith as Mother Aniseya, Charlie Barnett as Yord Fandar, Dafne Keen as Jecki Lon, Rebecca Henderson as Vernestra Rwoh, Carrie-Anne Moss as Indara, and Star Wars alum Joonas Suotama as a Wookiee Jedi Master named Kelnacca.

The Acolyte is set to have a two-episode premiere on June 4, exclusively on Disney+.
