This article discusses the Disney+ Star Wars series Andor, including the premise, release date, trailer, and cast.

When Rogue One first appeared in 2016, many were interested in the backstory of Cassian Andor, the Rebel captain and intelligence officer played by Diego Luna. The intriguing and complicated characters were one of the best parts of the film, so with all of the Disney+ Star Wars series being made, it’s not surprising that a prequel about Cassian Andor is one of them.

Here’s everything we know about the upcoming Disney+ Star Wars series Andor.

Disney+ Star Wars series Andor release date

The first three episodes of Andor will premiere on Disney+ on September 21, 2022. The rest of the twelve episodes will be released weekly until its finale on November 23. A second season of twelve more episodes is in development.

Disney+ Star Wars series Andor premise

Andor is set five years before Rogue One when Cassian would meet Jyn and sets into motion the destruction of the Death Star. Featuring characters including Cassian, Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly reprises her role from Rogue One and Revenge of the Sith), and Saw Gerrera, the series will look at a time when the Rebel Alliance was in its infancy. Audiences will get to see how a thief named Cassian became a revolutionary and an important member of the Rebellion.

Is there a trailer for Andor?

Yes, there is a trailer:

The Andor trailer promises that the series may be a bit different from the previous Disney+ Star Wars series. It shows Luthen (Skarsgård’s character) convincing Cassian to join the Rebellion and how different characters are beginning to form a resistance to the corrupt government. If the trailer is accurate to the show, then it may dive into the issues with the Empire that caused the Rebellion to form, including its inequality and brutality. The design and special effects look stunning, on the same level of quality as The Mandalorian, but more based in cities and ships than wilderness than the previous series. Andor promises to be another fantastic Star Wars offering and one that Rogue One fans especially will adore.
