‘Star Wars’: New ‘Andor’ trailer explores origins of rise up


A “Star Wars” hero as soon as mentioned that rebellions are constructed on hope. The most recent Disney+ sequence set in a galaxy far, distant explores the origins of that hero, whose sacrifices would finally assist the Insurgent Alliance take down the evil Galactic Empire.

Diego Luna returns to the “Star Wars” universe in “Andor,” a prequel to “Rogue One,” which was itself a prequel to “Episode IV: A New Hope.” At this level within the sequence, although, the rise up is however a glint in a younger Cassian Andor’s eye.

The most recent trailer reveals a bit extra about Andor’s evolution from frequent thief to galactic martyr and teases what viewers can count on from solid members Stellan Skarsgård, “Morbius” star Adria Arjona and Forest Whitaker, who reprises his function because the extremist Noticed Gerrera.

After we re-meet Andor within the trailer, he has infiltrated the Empire (although it seems the Empire has first invaded his house planet), even donning a colorless grey Imperial uniform.

“To steal from the Empire, you just walk in like you belong,” Andor says within the trailer. “They can’t imagine that someone like me would ever get inside their house.”

A cloaked Skarsgård seems and encourages Andor to “give it all to do something real” – take down the Empire, maybe? Whitaker, whose Gerrera has not but been pushed fully mad by loss and that slimy, mind-melting monster Bor Gullet, appears keen to go to conflict.

There are the requisite appearances of stormtroopers, TIE fighters and different menacing symbols of the Empire. We meet a ruthless officer of the Empire performed by Denise Gough, watch Fiona Shaw’s unknown character shed a tear and catch a glimpse of the lavish lifetime of Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly), who, viewers know, will go on to steer a revolution.

Showing on “Good Morning America” to introduce the brand new trailer, Luna told the hosts that his character begins his journey as a “regular guy” thrown into extraordinary circumstances, one thing viewers can relate to.

“It’s the beginning of the origins of a revolution,” Luna mentioned on Monday. “It reminds us what we’re capable of – what we’re all capable of.”

The primary three episodes of “Andor” begin streaming on September 21 – a number of weeks later than initially deliberate – on Disney+.
