Disney Plus has announced a September 21 premiere day for the highly anticipated series starring Diego Luna as Rogue One’s Cassian Andor, delaying the series a month since its original August 31 premiere. While the news comes as a surprise to fans, it could likely be a decision to avoid the collision with Marvel’s She-Hulk. Unfortunately, the latest Star Wars spectacle won’t be airing this month, but the Andor trailer promises a story that’ll be worth the wait.
The series will also star Adria Arjona, Genevieve O’Reilly, Fiona Shaw, Kyle Soller, and Stellan Skarsgård with Forest Whitaker. The trailer premiered on Good Morning America, where Luna spoke briefly about the series, stating: “We’re going to meet him when life is tough. It’s a very sometimes dark and interesting life because it’s just a regular guy that suddenly has to become part of something bigger, has to become part of a community that rises. It’s the beginning of the origins of a revolution, and it’s a beautiful story because it reminds us of what we are capable of—what we are all capable of. There’s no Jedis around. It’s people having to take control.”
Luna’s infectious joy and utmost adoration for this character have made Cassian Andor a thrill to watch in Rogue One, and with everything that we’ve learned so far, the origin story will undoubtedly make us love the character even more. The Andor trailer is gorgeously immersive, which tells us much of what we need to know. Additionally, while Rogue One alone is one of the best Star Wars films to date, Disney Plus TV series have also set high bars with The Mandalorian and the latest, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Besides some hiccups, The Book of Boba Fett is also pretty fantastic.
