The Acolyte will feature Vernestra Rwoh in live action as casting confirmed at Star Wars Celebration

Vernestra Rwoh is coming to live action in upcoming Disney Plus series The Acolyte. At Star Wars Celebration, it was confirmed that she will be played by Rebecca Henderson during the High Republic panel.

Rwoh is a Mirialan Jedi Knight from the High Republic era and a fan-favorite from her appearances in books and comics.

At the panel, showrunner Leslye Headland explained Rwoh will be a good representation of where the Jedi are going between the High Republic and the Prequel Trilogy. She also teased that she's at a crossroads, and will go from the idealism of the Jedi in the High Republic books to the more restrictive dogma of the Prequel Trilogy over the course of this series.

The synopsis also supplies additional information about The Acolyte's setting, confirming that it takes place during "the final days" of the High Republic era, as "dark side powers" return to once again threaten the galaxy.

Star Wars: Rumored Working Title and Plot Details for The Acolyte Revealed

We know that The Acolyte will be set in the time period of the new Star Wars: The High Republic line, which is set 200 years before the Skywalker Saga begins. However, at the same time, it's been indicated that The Acolyte will mark the end of The High Republic era, making it a potentially pivotal chapter of the Star Wars franchise. The Acolyte's working title will reportedly be "Paradox," and it's a title that will certainly get Star Wars chat threads going with theories about what kind of inside joke (or big secret) that title is implying. The main character in the series will reportedly be named "Aura," although it's obviously not yet official, and could conceivably be code for a different character name entirely.

In April 2020, Variety reported that a female-centric live-action Star Wars series is in development for Disney+ with Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland serving as a writer and showrunner. In early November, Headland expounded that the series would be set "in a pocket of the universe and a pocket of the timeline that we don't know much about," elaborating that she was more engaged creatively with the geography of the Star Wars universe than its existing visuals. On November 5, Deadline reported that the series was expected to be an "action thriller with martial arts elements". On Disney Investor Day 2020, it was revealed that it would take place during the late High Republic era. Filming is expected to begin in February 2022 in London, with the series consisting of eight episodes.
