Diego Luna Returns to Star Wars in New Andor Trailer

Diego Luna is back in the Star Wars franchise. After starring in Rogue One as Cassian Andor, he now has his own spin-off series coming to Disney+ – and the first full trailer arrived. The series will focus on Cassian’s wartime upbringing and integration into the Rebel Alliance. Lucasfilm announced the series in November 2018, with Luna attached and Stephen Schiff (FX’s The Americans) signed on as showrunner. Schiff was later replaced by Rogue One co-writer Tony Gilroy as creator and showrunner in April 2020.

The series begins in the early years of the Galactic Empire, even showing an empty Republic room that we saw in the Star Wars prequels. Geneviève O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Fiona Shaw will join Luna.

A second season of Andor has already been confirmed for Disney+, so don’t expect that character’s story to end in Season 1. Interestingly, O’Reilly will be reprising his role on the show as Mon Mothma, a role she took over from Caroline Blakiston dating all the way back to Revenge of the Sith 17 years ago.

The series will hit the streaming service with a three-episode premiere on September 21, while the rest of the episodes will drop weekly until November 23. At 12 episodes, this will be the longest first season of any Star Wars show on Disney+.
