What are they even gonna do for villains? The Nihl like in the novels? Can’t have the Sith since they’ve been gone for a millenium.
I actually wonder if it will be Sith-related as The Acolyte I believe could only be like 50 years before The Phantom Menace. Maybe following somebody part of a cult worshipping the Sith, who eventually gets to meet Darth Plagueis. I don’t know but I agree that the mystery surrounding this series makes me really excited for it.
I doubt it will be the Nihil - the way I can see it happening, is that the Nihil story is wrapped up by the books and comics and The Acolyte is a separate story. Would be great if they connected in some way though.
