Based on the George Lucas franchise, Tony Gilroy’s American action-adventure television series Andor stars Diego Luna, Stellan Skarsgard, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, and Genevieve O’Reilly. It will debut on Disney+ on August 31, 2022, and it is a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It chronicles Cassian Andor’s travels five years before the movie’s events. Tony Gilroy and Toby Haynes collaborated on the series’ introductory episode. In the UK’s England and Scotland, Andor was shot. Winspit Quarry, a quarry in the southern county of Dorset, close to Worth Matravers, has been used for filming.
Where was Andor filmed?
You can see that Andor did shoot on far-off mountaintops in the opening few shots of the brand-new trailer. “We had to climb a mountain for hours to put up one picture in Pitlochry, Scotland”, said Luna. Cleveleys, Cruachan Reservoir, London, and Winspit Quarry were used for the filming of Andor.
Additionally, Andor was filmed in Pinewood Studios in the UK, using fully realised sets, exactly like a big motion picture production, when it wasn’t shooting on location. Gilroy stated, “We didn’t utilise StageCraft at all. Of course, the goal is to make Andor not only stand apart from all of the previous Star Wars shows but also blend in smoothly with the appearance of Andor in Rogue One, which was also shot on site and in soundstages.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gilroy was unable to direct as scheduled, therefore filming started at the end of November 2020. By September 2021, all of the filmings had been completed, both at Pinewood Studios in London and on-location in other parts of the UK.
When & where to watch Andor?
The first three episodes of Andor’s first 12-episode season are scheduled to stream on Disney+ on September 21, 2022. The remaining episodes will be made available every week till November 23. The series will come to an end with a second 12-episode season that will set the stage for Rogue One.
