Television

Jodie Turner-Smith might have booked a ticket to a galaxy far, far away.

The Queen & Slim star is finalizing a deal to appear in the upcoming Disney+ series Star Wars: The Acolyte, according to Deadline.

Details about the series—including Turner-Smith’s role—remain scarce, but we do know that The Acolyte will star The Hate U Give star Amandla Stenberg.

E! News reached out to reps for Turner-Smith, Lucasfilm and Disney+ for comment, but did not hear back.

Showrunner Leslye Headland, who co-created Netflix’s Russian Doll, told Vanity Fair that the series will “take a look at the political and personal and spiritual things that came up in a time period that we don’t know much about.”

Headland said the series will take place roughly 100 years before the events of 1999’s Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

“My question when watching The Phantom Menace was always like, ‘Well, how did things get to this point?'” Headland teased. “How did we get to a point where a Sith lord can infiltrate the Senate and none of the Jedi pick up on it? Like, what went wrong? What are the scenarios that led us to this moment?”

We can’t wait to find out!
