UNITED STATES: The new trailer for Disney’s next Star Wars spinoff, Andor, was surprisingly unveiled. Following the finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the streaming service has added Andor to its lineup of upcoming shows. The trailer stars Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, who witnessed his birthplace getting destroyed by the imperial Empire.
Andor is a prequel to the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which connects the titular character’s quest to join rebel fighters in order to obtain the blueprints for one of the Empire’s most lethal weapons. The spinoff will concentrate on the story before the events of Rogue One.
The Star Wars series stars a talented ensemble
Given his expertise working on the original Rouge One script, Tony Gilroy developed the series. Toby Haynes also joined the director’s chair in the lead position. Susanna White and Benjamin Caron will also helm some of the show’s episodes.
The action-adventure series stars Diego Luna as Cassian Andor in the lead role. Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma, Stellan Skarsgard as Luthen, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, Adria Arjona as Kleya, Denise Gough as Dedra Meera and Alex Lawther as Rick portrays the pivotal roles. Kyle Soller, Fiona Shaw, and Robert Emms round up the show’s ensemble cast.
Originally scheduled to premiere on August 31, 2022, the forthcoming Star Wars spinoff will now air on September 21, 2022. There will be a total of 12 episodes in the series, the first 3 of which will air on the premiere day. With the aforementioned modifications, the series becomes the first Star Wars program to get the highest number of episodes.
Mandalorian, the first Star Wars live-action program, debuted on Disney+ and became an instant hit encompassing a massive fanbase. Following the Mandalorian season 2, Boba Fett bagged its own show. Along with Andor, the new Star Wars project will feature Ahsoka, Mandalorian season 3, and Skeleton Crew.
