Disney+ Releases New Trailer for ‘Star Wars: Andor’ Plus New Debut Date

Star Wars: Andor

This morning, Disney+ released a new more in-depth trailer for its upcoming series, “Star Wars: Andor,” as well as announcing a new start date.


The Series

“Star Wars: Andor” is a prequel to the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” and it centers on the character of Cassian Andor, once again played by actor Diego Luna.

The series is set during the height of the Empire, five years before “Rogue One,” and shows everything that leads to Andor’s actions in the movie.

The series was originally going to be a limited run of a one season of 12 episodes, but that has been extended for a season two already as they realized there was so much story to tell.

Creator and showrunner Tony Gilroy said at “Star Wars Celebration” that the final episode of the second season will “walk you into ‘Rogue.’”


The Trailer

This second trailer shows more of the cast, and a bit of the intricasies of the lives of the characters, many of whom are leading dual lives working with the Empire while they try to destroy it.

“I need all the heroes I can get,” says Luthen (Stellan Skarsgård).

Take a look:


The Cast

Actress Genevieve O’Reilly, is also reprising her character of a young Mon Mothma from “Rogue One,” as is Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera.

The series also stars Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw, and Kyle Soller.

The New Debut Date

Star Wars: Andor” was originally set to debut at the end of this month on August 31, but in announcing the trailer on ABC’s “Good Morning America” it was revealed the date has changed.

The series will now kick off on September 21, 2022, with a THREE-episode premier on Disney+.

No word on why it got pushed back a month, but happy to be able to see the first three episodes at once.
