Diego Luna Returns in First Look Teaser for ‘Andor’ Star Wars Series
“People are standing up.” “That’s what a reckoning sounds like.” Disney has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Andor, the new spin-off series from Rogue One focusing on the character of Cassian Andor – a rebel spy. This is one of Disney’s next new Star Wars series coming to streaming this summer, landing on Disney+ to watch right after the Obi-Wan Kenobi series wraps up these next few months. Set five years before the events of Rogue One, the series follows rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion. It’s showurn by writer Tony Gilroy, which is a huge get for this. Diego Luna returns to stars as Andor, with a cast featuring Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, as well as Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma; plus Forest Whitaker back as Saw Gerrera, veteran of the Clone Wars and the leader of a militant insurgent group. This looks like an ensemble thriller about various people rising into the Rebellion, which is right on the zeitgeist and very much an inspiring concept for these days.
