Disney+ is pleased to share the trailer from its upcoming series Andor which was featured this morning at Star Wars Celebration. The new, original series from Lucasfilm takes place prior to the events of Rogue One and launches exclusively on Disney+ on August 31, with the first two episodes.
The Andor series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception, and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.
Diego Luna debuted as the titular character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the 2016’s anthology movie which was also the second Star Wars movie of the franchise’s Disney era. The movie starred Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, who worked with Andor for the Rebel Alliance in order to get the plans for the Death Star which were later given to Princess Leia, which led to the events of the very first Star Wars movie — New Hope. This upcoming series will take place prior to the events of Rogue One.
