Star Wars series like The Mandalorian, The Boba Fett Book or, especially, Obi-Wan, they have been a great success, first, because they are great series. But also because They are set in the classic universe of the saga, that of George Lucas.
Disney+ faces a great challenge Andor, the new series set in “his” Star Wars universe, that of the new trilogy and spin-offs, which have not caught on so much among fans. You can see the andor trailer in the opening video of the news.
Andor is the prequel to the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which in turn aims to be the prequel to the entire saga, as it will show us The origins of the Rebellion. It will take place five years before the movie.
The Mexican diego moon retakes his role Cassian Andora spy of the Rebellion that in the series will be part of the framework that will give rise to the first spark against the Empire.
While Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was basically a war movie, Andor looks set to focus more on the political and social fabric which led to the Rebellion. will also have a thriller tone in the espionage missions that it seems that Cassian Andor will have to carry out.
With a darker and “dirtier” style, Andor will be a different Star Wars series, which will test Disney’s ability to keep expanding the Star Wars universe, breaking the bonds of George Lucas. A complicated task.
Along with Diego Luna, the cast is completed by Genevieve O’Reilly, who repeats as Mon Mothma, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Kyle Soller and Alex Ferns, among others.
Andor will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on September 21st, with the first three episodes. The other 9 will be released weekly. Lucasfilm has already confirmed that Andor will get a second season.
