(Pocket-lint) – “If we really do this, I want to help,” says Cassian Andor in Rogue One. Andor is set to expand his role in the Star Wars universe with his own series coming to Disney +.
Disney + invests in Star Wars stories. We have seen the success of The Mandalorian, the revitalization of Boba Fett and most recently the story of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The next step takes us into Rogue One prequel territory. Here’s everything you need to know about Andor.
Andor release date
Andor will be released on August 31, 2022 with a two-episode launch, exclusively on Disney +.
How many episodes will there be in Andor season 1?
The series has been confirmed to have 12 episodes, with two episodes to start – we then expect a weekly release for the next 10 episodes.
Is there a season 2 of Andor coming?
Yes, it looks like there will be 12 more episodes, but instead of seasons, this is a different part, according to Variety.
Filming begins in November 2022, so the release is scheduled for 2023.

According to Disney:
The “Andor” series will explore a new perspective on the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series tells the story of the burgeoning revolt against the empire and how humans and planets became involved. It is a time filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path destined to make him a rebel hero.
The trailer (as you can see below) is dark and shows us a time of oppression in the galaxy, the power of empire and the seeds of rebellion being sown. We get a glimpse of the galactic senate, clones and rebellion story that unfolds in Rogue One and is found in A New Hope. We have a feeling that it’s going to be about the difference small people can make against great power – a classic rebellion situation.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, we learn more details about Andor’s surroundings. The story begins with the destruction of Cassian Andor’s home planet, who becomes a refugee and turns to rebellion. But it’s not just about Cassian Andor’s life, the new series will, alongside the life of Mon Mothma, the leader of the rebels, show us how these two characters collide in their rebellion against the empire.
Andor is said to be set 5 years before Rogue One, which makes us wonder if we will also see the transition from clones to Stormtroopers in Andor’s history.
Is there a trailer for Andor?
It’s definitely there. This trailer was released on May 26, 2022 during the Star Wars Celebration. Since this is a trailer, we expect more trailers to follow closer to launch.
Andor’s cast is impressive, with a number of characters repeating roles from Rogue One, meaning there will be plenty of continuity. Not all characters have been confirmed:
- Diego Luna – Cassian Andor
- Genevieve O’Reilly – Mon Mothma
- Stellan Skarsgård-
- Adria Arjona
- Denise Gough
- Kyle Soller
- Forest Whitaker – Saw Gerrera
- Fiona Shaw
Tony Gilroy, who wrote the script for Rogue One, is the creator and showrunner, so again, we expect the series to be closely linked to the Rogue One movie.
Andor: Where to watch online
The series will be available exclusively on Disney +.
What to see before Andor
If you want to catch up with the plot, the main movie is probably Rogue One as it introduces you to the character Cassian Andor.
You can find a complete timeline of Star Wars movies and series here, and this is the first part of greatest interest: The Rise of the Empire, before A New Hope.
