All eyes are now on Star Wars’ new series, The Acolyte. On June 4, the show will finally release its special two-episode premiere. It will see the start of Jedi Master Sol's (Lee Jung-jae) journey as he investigates the mysterious Jedi killings in the galaxy far, far away. As it will premiere on Tuesday, a far cry from Disney+’s usual Wednesday release schedule, many wonder what time it will be released.

The Acolyte will have the same release schedule as Star Wars: Ahsoka every Tuesday at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET. Ahsoka also premiered its first two episodes on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, seemingly setting a new standard for Star Wars’ live-action series’ release schedule on Disney+. It’s also good to note that Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 premiered on Wednesday, February 21, at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET, apparently confirming that Star Wars animated series shows would follow Disney+’s usual release schedule while the franchise’s flagship series would be released a day earlier, like Ahsoka.
