The actress then talks about Jecki’ Lon’s relationship with Jedi Master Sol: “I would say she’s a very devoted Padawan. She’s definitely in awe of her in a very sweet way.

Stenberg previously spoke about the series, saying: “In the context of Star Wars universe, it is a moment of great peace, in theory. It is also the time of an institution, and it is a time in which the conceptions around the Force are very rigid. And I think what we’re trying to explore within our show is when an institution has a singular conception of how power can be used… we try to provide many different perspectives and answers to that question. The idea is to honor the Star Wars ethos and ideas about the Force and also challenge them, hopefully in a harmonious way.”
