The first season of Andor: The Star Wars show had 12 episodes, but the second season will have 24 episodes. Tony Gilroy, who is in charge of the show, said on May 26 that the second season will start in November. Gilmore told the crowd Thursday, “We’re going to go back five years from Rogue One.” “We’ve shot 12 episodes already!”
Cassian Andor, who Luna played in Rogue One, is back in the new series, which looks into the character’s past. At the height of the Empire, when the first episode takes place, Andor’s homeworld is destroyed. Luna has called Andor “the journey of a refugee… This story is about how it feels to have to move… That makes you who you are. It tells a lot about who you are and what you’re willing to do.
Thursday at this year’s Star Wars Celebration, there was a Lucasfilm panel where the news about Andor was shared. At the beginning of the fan-friendly event, Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregror took the stage to talk about the new Disney+ Star Wars series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, which starts on May 26. Before they come out on Disney, fans in Anaheim will be able to see the first two episodes. McGregor told the full house, “We started to feel your love for the prequels we made.”
The “Andor” series will take a new look at the Star Wars universe by following Cassian Andor as he tries to figure out what he can do to help. The series tells the story of how people and planets got involved in the rebellion against the Empire as it grew.
Cassian is about to go on a journey that will turn him into a rebel hero in a time of danger, lies, and intrigue.
Diego Luna plays Cassian Andor once more. Some of the people in the cast are Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgrd, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller. The show’s executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna, and Michelle Rejwan. Tony Gilroy made the show and is also in charge of it.
