    I wonder if we'll see any Jedi outposts in The Acolyte.

    Possibly.

    In fact, that reminds me of something I posted in the tv show part of the website - there is a quote in the Empire magazine article which might be hinting at Alaris Prime, which we know from other High Republic related material that there is a high republic outpost there (which retroactively explains the jedi ruins you stumble across there in galactic battlegrounds):
    "Charlie Barnett hints at a trip to Kelnacca's Wookiee planet —which notably isn't Kashyyyk."

    Alaris Prime is pretty much the biggest name wookiee planet outside of Kashyyk, and while I acknowledge there is a strong possibility of being a new planet, the fact that Alaris Prime has already showed up in the High Republic as home to a jedi outpost would fit really well into a jedi murder mystery with a wookiee jedi character. Especially since the creative lead is a legends fans who talks about her desire to recanonize certain things.

    Pablo Hidalgo tweeted about it back in 2016, but he regularly deletes. I think it was during the creation of Ep.III, when Lucas first created the character; obviously though, that was never tied down. (Here is a screenshot somebody took and posted on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/media?url=https://i.redd.it/94iwe5q03r701.png) I'm not sure there's an answer if it was Luceno or Lucas who came up with the Muun version for the novel.
    I doubt we'll get Plagueis in the Acolyte, but generally speaking, I would like it if canon does go with a Neimodian rather than simply copying Legends (again). Perhaps he could be the reason the Trade Federation became so central to the Sith's plans, with him and Palpatine setting up the TF and Naboo for the eventual conflict, similar to how Palpatine and Dooku worked together to facilitate the Clone Wars

    Something tells me that in Disney Canon Darth Plagueis will not be a Muun or Neimoidian i hope im wrong
    but i believe in the possibility of a change in the species and gender of Plagueis but if that happens i hope the change is well executed

    Where? I've seen a still, not a new teaser.

    When I searched YT... Woof. The prevalence of Fandom Menace bs in those results is crazy. There's nothing organic about it either, it's apparent from the thumbnails alone that there's this weird coordinated response and talking points.

    YT is a cesspool

    Found it. It's a South Korean trailer. WARNING: Might auto play when you open the spoiler. I don't embed Reddit content that often.


    And the species Fredrik is referring to is
    a Neimoidian 9 seconds in

    Wat Tambor appearing in this series as young entrepreneur, offering the idea of droid security forces to the Trade Federation, can be an ultimate cameo, although the chances of it are near zero.

    In the EU - 90-110 years, in the NU Canon - unknown, but Tambor was already active around hundred years before OT, obtaining Triple-Zero personality matrix at that time.

    So add another 30 years and maybe see young Tambor heading up in the world.

    When was Palpatine born in New Canon? maybe we will see a young Palpatine when this show ends although its a little sad that they are going to contradict the Darth Plagueis novel i really dont have any expectations that Plagueis will be a Muun in the New Canon although it would be great if Plagueis still was a Muun im curious to see this show

    82 BBY, per The Clone Wars Character Encyclopedia.
    The only canon depiction we have of Plagueis in canon does not really suggest a Muun, but this is also the kind of image later creators aren't likely to be beholden to when Plagueis finally receives a canon visual depiction. Spoilering for size:

    I don’t read that as an actual depiction of Plagueis, more as a stand-in “shadowy figure”

    Yeah, the artist all but added an embroidered question mark on his robe. Intended to represent Plagueis or not, it's sufficiently generic that it certainly won't constrain any future depictions of the character.

    I just hope if not a Muun, he's still a non human.

    Yeah - a Nemodian like Lucas suggested would work well I think.
