"One of the most exciting and ambitious new series we have coming to Disney+ in 2022 is Andor, a tense nail-biting spy thriller in the Star Wars universe created by Tony Gilroy."
―Kathleen Kennedy announces the title of the series during Investor Day 2020[11]

Andor is an upcoming television series currently being developed by Lucasfilm. It is set to air on Disney's online streaming service, Disney+. The series is a spy thriller starring Diego Luna, reprising his role as Cassian Andor from the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Official description[]

The Andor series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor's journey to discover the difference he can make. 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.[5]

Development[]

"Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me. I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply."
―Diego Luna, on reprising his role[1]

Talks for a television series focused on Cassian Jeron Andor, Diego Luna's character from the 2016 Star Wars Anthology film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, began before the Anthology film was released, though Luna had doubts that it would happen.[12] In February 2018, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that "a few" Star Wars live-action series were in development for Disney's streaming service.[13] The series was officially announced by Iger during a Disney quarterly earnings call on November 8, 2018.[1]

On November 30, it was reported that The Americans executive producer Stephen Schiff was tapped to serve as a showrunner while Moana writer Jared Bush was revealed to have originated the project by writing a pilot script and a series bible.[14] According to Production Weekly, the series was scheduled to begin production in October 2019.[15] On July 11, 2019, Rick Famuyiwa was reported to be in talks to direct an undisclosed amount of episodes for the series, with filming scheduled to begin on October 7.[16] On October 15, 2019, Variety reported that Rogue One co-writer Tony Gilroy would be writing the pilot for the series in addition to directing multiple episodes.[17]

Filming[]

On December 3, 2020,[18] Diego Luna confirmed that the series had started filming in London.[19] The title of Andor, as well as behind the scenes footage of the filming of the series, were unveiled on December 10, 2020 at a Disney investors meeting. Filming began in late November of 2020.[20][21] Although Alan Tudyk was initially announced to play K-2SO in the series,[7] he later clarified in January of 2021 that while production was underway, he was not going to appear in the first season. He did, however, expect to be brought into the fold in later seasons.[22]

The showrunners opted for practical environments, with scenes being shot at Pinewood Studios and on location. One scene was shot at Pitlochry, Scotland.[23] Filming wrapped in September 2021.[24]

Marketing[]

On May 26, 2022, Lucasfilm released a teaser trailer for the Andor series at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022. The studio also announced that the series would premiere on Disney+ on August 31, 2022.[25][26]

On August 1, Lucasfilm released an official trailer and announced that the release date had been pushed back to September 21, 2022.[3]
