Andor : Trailer, Release Date, Cast, and Everything We Know

The Disney behemoth is still producing new Star Wars material, with at least three additional episodes set to debut in 2022 and more in 2023. The next television series, Andor, which will be split into two parts, serves as a prequel to the fantastic film Rogue One. The gritty job of inciting a rebellion will be demonstrated in this series, along with the more covert activities of the Rebellion’s spies and secret troops. Here is all the information we have about this intriguing spin-off series.

What Is Andor About?

Andor will tell both the origin tale of the Rebellion and the story of the title character, as well as the rougher side of the Rebellion. In Rogue One, Cassian almost assassinates Galen Erso and is willing to kill another Rebel spy in order to keep him from disclosing information that is crucial to the Rebellion. In light of Cassian’s difficult past and the probability of betrayals and loss, I would not believe any character in the program is safe.

The fact that the stormtroopers are not yet wearing their traditional armor and that we can see a sizable training facility suggests that the Empire may still be employing clones even though this first season is set relatively early in the post-Order 66 reality. We also get to see a lot of the inside of imperial buildings, which suggests that this series will be heavily focused on espionage and the stealing of sensitive information.

Because there is not a single mention of the Force or a lightsaber, this story will join the growing list of Star Wars stories that do not include a Jedi (or even a Sith) as the primary character. We can’t completely rule out the possibility of live-action Inquisitors or even Hayden Christensen playing Darth Vader since they appeared in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

When And Where Is Andor Coming Out?

Andor, like all the upcoming Star Wars shows, will only be accessible on Disney+. Disney+ has been spreading to many other nations, so this is fortunate. Disney+ is currently available in 34 nations, but for those who do not, there are still some possibilities. Disney has used movie theaters to show a lot of the series’ episodes at once for ventures like Ms. Marvel. While no such statement has been made for Andor, depending on Disney’s plans, fans may have this option.

Originally scheduled for August 31, 2022, the release date was finally moved forward to September 21, 2022, and it would begin with three episodes. Furthermore, it looks that Disney+’s usual release schedule, which calls for the weekly release of a new episode, will be followed by Andor. With a total of 12 episodes in the first season, this series will also be the longest of the live-action Star Wars programs. So, from September 21 to November 23, tune in every Wednesday. We may very well have multiple Star Wars shows releasing at the same time, considering that the premiere dates for the upcoming Tales of the Jedi and Bad Batch Season 2 are somewhere this fall.

Watch the Andor Trailer

During Star Wars Celebration on May 26, 2022, the first Andor trailer will be released.

You may have noticed from the trailer that K-2SO, a popular sardonic droid, is not there at all. Because Alan Tudyk, who performed K-2SO’s voice in Rogue One, has indicated that he won’t appear in the first season but has also hinted that he would in later storylines, we may anticipate learning about K-2SO’s past in Season 2. There are also a few early rebel soldiers and possibly even clones working for the empire. One of the effects of the Rogue One film is the Death Troopers, and perhaps we’ll get to see them again.

On August 1, 2022, the second trailer for Andor was unveiled, giving us the series’ Rogue One prequels’ greatest look to far. The Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker will play Saw Gerrera again in the series, according to the clip.

Who Is in the Cast of Andor?

While many of the series’ actors have been confirmed thus far, little is known about the characters they will be playing. It appears like Disney is keeping its cards close to its chest in addition to adding a ton of new characters to the Star Wars universe.

We have a few recognizable faces filling some of our recurring roles. For the duration of the entire series, Diego Luna will return to the character of Cassian Andor in the title. The zealot Saw Gerrera, whose demise was depicted in Rogue One, and who has made cameos in both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: The Bad Batch, will also be played once more by Forest Whitaker in a live-action version. Genevieve O’Reilly will reprise her part as Senator Mon Mothma, who initially supported the rebellion and then became the head of the New Republic, from Rogue One and Star Wars: Rebels.

Anton Valensi as Ben and former Irregulars actor Alex Ferms as Sergeant Kostek are two namesake characters who are brand-new to the Star Wars universe. Ben will be in three episodes, whereas Kostek will be in all twelve. A character named Luthen will be played by seasoned actor Stellan Skarsgrd. As was previously mentioned, Forest Whitaker will return to the series to play Saw Gerrera.

And that makes up the majority of Andor’s listed roles that have been publicized so far. We do have a semi-full cast list that includes actors like Adria Arjona from Father of the Bride, Yennefer Denise Gough from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Fiona Shaw from Harry Potter. Given the wealth of seasoned performers and actresses in this cast, outstanding performances are to be expected.
