You will recover a little Star Wars with your Disney+? After The Bad Batch and Obi-Wan Kenobi, the mouse company’s SVoD service will broadcast a new series adapted from the LucasFilm universe at the start of the next school year. This time, it’s not a big name from the canon that will headline, but a more intimate character, but nevertheless important in the great spatial fresco of the license to the stars. Andor will therefore stage the eponymous resistant, several years before the events of the film RogueOneand of course a good big quarter of a century before those of the first feature film A new hope.
Initially expected for the very end of this month of August, the series Andor will be a little further behind and won’t arrive on Disney+ until mid-September.
Andor reschedules next month on Disney+
More precisely, it is now on September 21 that Andor will broadcast its first three episodes on the streaming service. A small delay of about twenty days, therefore, before discovering the prequel of the prequel featuring Cassian Andor struggling with the Empire. And of the Empire, there are many in the trailer put online by Disney to announce the new release date of the series. In addition to the generals of the Axis of Evil, this trailer also allows us to see Forest Whitaker, reprising his role of Saw Gerrera and already seen in other Star Wars productions like Rebels or the video game Jedi: Fallen Order.
In addition, the official showrunner Tony Gilroy recently spoke about the original structure of Andor during an interview for the American magazine Empire. We thus learn that each episode will represent “one year block” in the young Cassian’s timeline, which should move the plot forward in leaps and bounds and pack as many events as possible into a finite number of episodes. Speaking of the latter, Gilroy also confirmed that a second season is already planned for Andor. The Resistance has not finished being talked about.
