The upcoming Star Wars series The Acolyte has released its first full clip featuring an intense fight between the two main characters.

A lot of fans have been anticipating the release of The Acolyte since it will be the first Star Wars series that is set in the High Republic era, a timeline that has never been explored in any of the live-action projects.

The series is a mystery thriller that revolves around Jedi Master Sol's investigation of a series of crimes that his former apprentice Mae seemingly committed.

The Acolyte Clips Sees Sol Squaring Off Against Mae

As we're now two weeks away from its premiere, Lucasfilm has released the first official clip for The Acolyte titled "Mae and Sol Fight" which gives us a glimpse at one of the show's action scenes.

In the minute-long clip, Sol (Lee Jung-jae) is squaring off against his former apprentice Mae (Amandla Stenberg). We see a blend of martial arts and the Force throughout their fight.

While Mae's fighting skills are impressive, she is clearly outmaneuvered by Sol, who manages to dodge every single attack and disarm her in the end by secretly taking out her knives.

The martial arts fight choreography that they showed in the clip looks spectacular even if it's just a quick glimpse since it is a style that we rarely see in any of the Star Wars live-action projects.

You can also tell that there is a history between the two characters and this could be a clue on what we can expect regarding how they will explore the estranged relationship between Sol and Mae as they are now on opposite sides.

Despite being a short clip, it is still a great tease about the series since it shows a promising sign about the fight choreography that we can expect throughout the first season.

Fans should expect more clips and TV spots as we're getting closer to the release.

The Acolyte will premiere on Disney+ with two episodes this June 4.
