Star Wars Releases New 'Andor' Trailer And Release Date

The action-packed show is focused more on practical effects.


Star Wars released the new trailer for the spinoff series Andor on Monday.

Andor stars Diego Luna who is reprising his role of Cassian Andor from the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The action-packed show follows the start of the Rebel Alliance. It takes place two years before the events of Rogue One which was a prequel to Star Wars: A New Hope.

Genevieve O’Reilly will be reprising her role as Senator Mon Mothma from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One. Forest Whitaker will be reprising his role of Saw Guerrera from Rogue One and Star Wars Rebels. The remaining cast includes Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw, Stellan Skarsgård, and Kyle Soller.

“We’re going to meet him when life is tough, it’s a very dark and interesting life because it’s just a regular guy that suddenly has to become part of something bigger, has to become part of a community that rises,” said Luna to Good Morning Americ. “It’s the beginning of the origins of a revolution, and it’s a beautiful story because it reminds us what we are capable of, what we are all capable of. There’s no Jedis around — it’s people having to take control.”

Andor will have a three-episode premiere on Sept. 21 on Disney+, a delayed date from the original premiere of August 31. The show consists of 12 episodes and has already been picked up for a second season.
