The potential of Star Wars is always very impressive and anything that bears its name is bound to attract attention, whether we are talking about a series, a film or a video game. However, it is not always a good thing when the result is considered bad by the fans. The Star Wars community had the opportunity to get some damn false hope with the new series The Acolyte on Disney+ which nevertheless announced very heavy things!

Warning, this article will contain spoilers from the first three episodes of The Acolyte!

A scene from The Acolyte is considered ridiculous by many viewers of the series?

With now four episodes available, The Acolyte wanted to present themes that are still rarely addressed in Star Wars films, and a little more in the series: the High Republic and witches. These characters have already been crossed in video games or even in the series Ahsoka to a lesser extent, but this time, they are given a lot more screen time and it was precisely a scene about them that was disturbing in episode 3.

As the witches begin a singing ceremonialmany viewers found this one ridiculouseven closer to a fanfiction than to a real Star Wars series.

In this tweet seen more than 7 million times, the responses are quite scathing, with some even going so far as to say that Disney is well on its way to ruining the license for good. If there are still many episodes that could convince fans, for the moment the series is not doing well.

The Acolyte, one of the worst Star Wars series ever produced?

In terms of ratings, The Acolyte is at the lowest that we’ve probably never seen Star Wars. Indeed, the series of four episodes had been received quite positively by critics, with for example a beautiful 85% off Rotten Tomatoes.

Unfortunately, as is often the case, the public does not really agree with this opinion, and only 14% of viewer ratings are positive for the series. A little better on Google with 19% good grades, everything remains quite abysmal.

The Acolyte, from a public reception point of view, is therefore clearly not the next big hit of the franchise.
