Andor Plot and Cast
According to Disney “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.”
The first trailer is dark, showing us a time of oppression in the galaxy, the power of the empire, and the seeds of the rebellion being sown. We catch glimpses of the Galactic Senate, we see clone troopers, and a fleshing out of the rebel story that takes us into Rogue One – and is familiar in A New Hope. We get the sense that this is going to be about the difference that small people can make against big power – a classic rebellion situation.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, more details are learned about the setting for Andor. The story starts with the destruction of Cassian Andor’s home planet, seeing him as a refugee and turning to the rebellion. But it’s not only about the life of Cassian Andor, the new series will track the life of Mon Mothma, the rebel leader, in parallel and show us how these two characters collide in their rise against the empire.
Coming to the cast, it includes Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma, Stellan Skarsgard, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, Forest Whitaker – Saw Gerrera, and Fiona Shaw.
