Star Wars: Andor is a television series made by the American filmmaker Tony Gilroy, which premiered on Disney+ on September 21, 2022. A prequel of the 2016 film Rogue One, the series tells the story of a thief-turned-rebel spy Cassian Andor in the period five years prior to the events of the film.

Andor steers Star Wars down a road that was never explored before. The story of Cassian’s origin starts with a typical criminal who is going through trying times and desperation. It consists of people like blue-collar workers – something that is not usually featured in a Star War movie. It is on planets like Ferrix Morlana One and Kenari where the audience will get to meet an entirely new cast of characters. These are the ones who shaped Cassian’s history and helped him turn into the character that he is in Rogue One.
