Two new stories in the Star Wars franchise are currently taking the fanbase by storm with a groundbreaking new direction for the series. One is a book and the other is a TV show, however, they may be more deeply connected than the initial trailers showed.
How Are These New Entries Different From The Other Star Wars Movies?
The first thing to know is that the story of both the ‘Temptation of the Force’ and ‘The Acolyte’ take place in their bubble during 'The High Republic' era. This might be a bit of a warp to fans who have grown up alongside the original 'Star Wars' series and the main story.
Aside from the prequels, most of the 'Star Wars' movies revolve around the iconic lightsaber-wielding heroes, the Jedi, who are always less in number. Most 'Star Wars' movies barely have a cast of three Jedis, who practically carry a large proportion of the action in these movies.
'The High Republic,' on the other hand, is set 500 years before the movies at a time when the Jedi were at their high point. This is one of the reasons why ‘The Acolyte’ is gaining so much momentum on Disney+ right now. It’s a well-crafted murder mystery show that delves into the politics of the Star Wars universe during a time when its "peacekeepers" and heroes were at their most powerful. The series explores how the mysterious threat posed by 'The Acolyte’s' villain ultimately brings the High Republic to its knees.
How Does The Story Behind Temptation of the Force Play Out?
That’s the central mystery of the Acolyte series. However, 'Temptation of the Force' is part of a trilogy set within the 'High Republic Era,' taking place 100 years before the events of 'The Acolyte.'
The novels flesh out a lot of the context behind The Galactic Republic, the actual government built by the Jedi and how it evolved in the years leading up to what we see in ‘The Acolyte.’ To put it into context, 'The Acolyte' is set during the final few years of the High Republic Era, which means that it will likely answer what drove an end to 'The Golden Era of the Jedi.'
From ‘The Light of the Jedi’ to the latest entry, ‘Temptation of the Force’, these novels give some essential background to 'The Acolyte' show. Most importantly, the novels explore how the High Republic functions at its prime and how a mysterious group of anarchists slowly chips away at its power. This background may play a crucial role in 'The Acolyte.'
Only three episodes of the new show have come out, released weekly every Tuesday, which means you have plenty of time to catch up and figure out the mystery for yourself!
