Andor Trailer Officially Released for Disney+ Star Wars Show – The Hollywood Reporter

The first trailer for Andor puts Diego Luna back in the Star Wars galaxy. Along with the trailer reveal, a second season of the show was confirmed Thursday at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, Calif.

Season one will debut Aug. 31 with two episodes. Showrunner Tony Gilroy revealed 12 episodes have already been filmed, with 12 more planned for a second season. Andor centers on Luna’s his Rogue One character. The new series kicks off five years before Rogue One, with the second season covering the final four-year gap before the film. The series will lead directly into Rogue One with its final scene, Gilroy said.

“You’re not going to recognize Cassian Andor in the beginning. I cannot wait for you to meet him,” Luna said Thursday.

Andor stars Luna as Cassian Andor, the spy who sacrificed himself in 2016’s Rogue One while getting plans for the Death Star to the Rebellion. The series takes place ahead of the events of Rogue One and hails from Gilroy, the writer who unofficially took over directing duties on that film. Adria Arjona, Stellan Skarsgard, Genevieve O’Reilly and Denise Gough star.

Development on Andor dates back to 2018, when it was first officially revealed that Luna would reprise the role.

“The way we’re shooting this reminds me of how we shot the film, and the amount of work behind this TV series reminds me of the work you do for a film. It feels like we’re doing a very long movie,” Luna told The Hollywood Reporter in 2020 of working on the project.
