The Acolyte rumors

TheDisInsider's Derek Cornell and Skyler Shuler recently discussed Leslye Headland's upcoming Disney+ series, "The Acolyte," on The DisInsider Show. Cornell has heard that "The Acolyte" — set during the final days of the High Republic era — will explore major Sith characters from Star Wars Legends for the first time in live-action:

"We're talking about Darth Revan, folks — which I hear they're gonna bring in a lot of these Legends [characters]: Darth Bane, Darth Nihilus, Darth Malak, Darth Revan, all in [Star Wars: The Acolyte]. We'll see."

Hat tip to Star Wars News Net for the heads-up. "The Acolyte" is currently in production and will debut on Disney+ next year.

Who (or what) is Ghoel?

Jabba's Collection revives the "Jabba's Palace Roll Call" series with a new video about Ghoel, the mollusk-like alien glimpsed briefly in "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi." What a weirdo. I love him. Ghoel that is. I mean, Jabba's Collection is pretty great too, but I was mostly referring to Ghoel.
