Official “Andor” Trailer Reveals how the Rebellion Began

The official Andor trailer is here, and it reveals Disney+’s hugely ambitious new Star Wars series with a thrilling two-minute-long look. Whereas our first look at Andor gave us a glimpse at the drum beat of rebellion spreading across the galaxy, the official trailer gets deeper into the heart of the story, which is set before the events depicted in Rogue One when Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) was part of a team of rebels who successfully lifted the Death Star plans off the empire—and paid the ultimate price for their efforts.

In Andor, we see how the titular pilot and thief became one of the leaders of the rebellion and how he and many of his comrades had to figure out a way to infiltrate the Empire from the inside. The trailer not only gives us plenty more of Luna’s Andor but also reveals the return of Forest Whitaker’s resistance fighter Saw Gerrera, another key figure we met in Rogue One.

Andor will give us a rebellion-eyed view of how the Empire’s death-grip on the galaxy was challenged by normal people tired of being abused. Andor will begin with a bang—a three-part premiere on September 21, for a 12-episode series.

Check out the trailer below:

Here’s the official synopsis for Andor:

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.
