Star Wars Andor: date, what time does it come out and where can you watch it?

The new offering from Lucasfilm will be available to stream this week. Here’s everything you need to know about Star Wars: Andor...

Update:
How to watch Star Wars: Andor

The latest instalment from the Star Wars universe will be available to stream in the United States from Wednesday, 21 September as Star Wars: Andor debuts on Disney+.

The series is essentially a prequel for the wildly popular 2016 movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which was itself a prequel to the franchise’s first offering, Star Wars: A New Hope.

As is the case with all Star Wars content, Andor will be available to stream on Disney+. The first three episodes will be released on 21 September, with the remaining nine episodes of the first season made available every Wednesday.

What happens in Star Wars: Andor?

The newest offering is the fourth live-action Star Wars show from Disney+ since the media giant purchased the rights to Lucasfilm in 2012 for more than $4 billion. The previous three - The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and Obi-Wan Kenobi – all focus on individual characters to have emerged from the franchise’s lore and it looks like Star Wars: Andor will follow that pattern.

Rebel operative Cassian Andor was the hero of Rogue One, in which he and his team managed to send crucial details related to the Death Star to to the Alliance, setting up the plot of the original Star Wars film.

Diego Luna reprises his role as Cassian Andor for the new show, which has been described as a spy thriller series. Set in the five years before the events of Rogue One, the show will explore the circumstances that brought the Rebel Alliance into being and give fans a closer look at some familiar characters.

A press release from Disney explains: “The Andor series will explore a new perspective from theStar Warsgalaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved.”

“It’s an era filled with danger, deception, and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.”

Luna is part of an ensemble cast which includes a return for Genevieve as Senator Mon Mothma and Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera. They will be joined by Stellan Skarsgard, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw and Kyle Soller who play new characters.
