Andor is the most recent Star Wars TV series produced for Disney+. It is a prequel to the spinoff film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, starring Diego Luna as Cassian Andor and has already been confirmed to run for two seasons. Season 1 of Andor takes place five years before Rogue One, depicting Cassian’s transformation from petty thief to dedicated Rebellion spy who eventually gave his life for the cause.
While Cassian is the titular character and the main focus of Andor, marketing materials have shown the show’s vast scope. It’s not just Cassian’s origin story; it’s also the origin story of the Rebel Alliance, as a scrappy band of freedom fighters begins to push back against the Empire at the height of their reign. Characters such as Mon Mothma and Saw Gerrera have appeared in trailers, implying important roles on Andor.
