Andor Will Be Available on Disney Plus Later This Summer.
In what is shaping up to be a busy year for Star Wars fans, Disney has announced the release date for Andor on the streaming service. The new series, which will premiere this summer on Disney Plus, will follow Obi-Wan Kenobi and will be the first of many new Star Wars episodes on the way, including Luna and Ahsoka.
Star Wars: Andor has mostly slipped under the radar as its release approaches, owing to the nature of Kenobi and the popularity of the MandoVerse. The series, which was announced in late 2018, would be the first espionage thriller set in the galaxy far, far away, and will star Diego Luna, who played Cassian Andor in Rogue One.
Other characters from the spin-off film, including Ben Mendelsohn’s Director Krennic and Forrest Whittaker’s Saw Gerrera, are said to be returning.
With such a full calendar for 2022, there’s been a lot of speculation about Lucasfilm’s intentions for the series premiere. Andor will be released during the fourth quarter of the year, which includes the summer months. The first season will consist of 12 episodes, with a budget and production more equivalent to feature films in terms of the number of real sets built.
Star Wars Andor Will Be Released on Disney Plus Sometime This Summer.
Andor is coming to Disney Plus later this summer, according to a new Vanity Fair report revealing Disney’s next plans for its slate of Star Wars episodes on the streaming service. However, no specific release date has been announced, however, it is expected to appear before the highly anticipated third season of The Mandalorian. In late 2022, the newest installment in that series will hit his television screens.
The tale revealed several major storyline facts regarding the upcoming program, as well as provided fans an indication of when Andor would be accessible. It will pick up five years before the events of Rogue One, with Diego Luna reprising his role as Cassian Andor. After his home planet was destroyed, the story will follow his beginnings and explain why he joined the Rebellion. The program will also feature his strong friendship with Mon Mothma, according to an interview with Luna.
Tony Gilroy worked on the series as a co-writer and executive producer, which should comfort fans given his past involvement in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The director also wrote the Bourne trilogy and the critically praised Michael Clayton.
The Acolyte, a program that will investigate the events leading up to the prequel trilogy, has also been revealed by Disney. It will take place roughly 100 years before The Phantom Menace, during the height of the Galactic Republic. The project will feature Amandla Stenberg, with Lesley Headland serving as showrunner.
Hope Is the Foundation of All Rebellions.
The development of Andor, like the Death Star, had numerous setbacks and delays, but the series is virtually complete. With an August launch date, Andor will enable Disney+ to continue releasing live-action productions from one of the company’s most successful franchises. Many fans wanted to watch the series before the end of the year, and it seems like their dream will be fulfilled.
Andor Season 2 is also expected to begin filming in the fall. Lucasfilm may be setting Andor up to be an annual August release for the next few years if the series follows the same development rhythm as the MandoVerse projects. The series is expected to last three seasons, and although The Volume will not be used for the project, pre-existing sets and costumes may greatly reduce the amount of pre-production time.
The teaser video for Obi-Wan Kenobi has a very cinematic vibe for a streaming series, and Andor seems to be following suit by filming on location with actual sets. The first trailer for the series is slated to debut in May during the Star Wars Celebration, along with an official release window that would confirm (or deny) the suspected August release date.
If August turns out to be correct, the picture for the rest of 2022 is considerably clearer. Following Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Bad Batch Season 2 is expected to premiere in the summer to bridge the gap until Andor. After the Rebel spy’s 12 episodes have aired, viewers can look forward to seeing Din Djarin and Grogu again in The Mandalorian Season 3, which will air at the end of the year.
