Back for more fighting: Andor follows Cassian Andor, a character who first appeared in the 2016 movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Andor follows Cassian Andor, a character who first appeared in the 2016 movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. 

The series will serve as a prequel to the film in the early days after the Galactic Republic became the Empire. 

The first official trailer begins with rebel soldiers looking apprehensive as a noise stirs birds on a lush green planet.

They look up in the sky as a massive battle ship is seen flying low over the planet.

Then Cassian is seen as a child then a soldier and his voice is heard. 

‘To steal form the empire? You just walk in like you belong. They’re so proud of themselves. They’re so fat and satisfied they can’t imagine that someone like me could get inside their house,’ he says in a low voice.

The rebellion begins: A first poster for the new series, which launches September 21 on Disney+, was shared as well

‘The empire is choking your soul slowly, we’re starting not to notice. All I am asking is this, wouldn’t you rather give it all to something real?’ asked Stellan’s character. ‘I need all the heroes I can get.’

Forest is seen as he shared, ‘For the greater good.’

‘Call it what you want,’ adds Stellan.

A new hope: Genevieve O’Reilly is seen in character as she reveals she is secretly fighting for good

A new enemy: Denise Gough is shown in a beige coat and black hat with soldiers behind her

An acting great is also part of the cast: Oscar winner Forest Whitaker is also seen in the clip

‘Let’s call it war,’ finishes Forest.

The teaser trailer that was shared in late May showed some of the same material. The clip began with a shot of a man waking up a small, idyllic town with loud clangs from a bell in a tower. 

A ship then crashes down to the earth and stormtroopers begin to march on the town and the planet. 

Citizens rush around town, hiding weapons and huddling in their homes while ships that ferried clones around in Star Wars: Episode II- Attack of the Clones and and Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith bring a legion to the small town. 

As clones march through the city, Andor first appears, hiding behind a wall and waiting in the shadows.

Genevieve O’Reilly also appears in the trailer, reprising her role as Mon Mothma from both Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One. She says she’s being watched as she walks through a crowded dinner party. 

Stellan Skarsgård pops up and looks out at something far in the distance through a pair of high powered binoculars. 

‘Soon enough, these days will end,’ he says as he stands on the grassy knoll. ‘There will be no rules going forward.’

On the hunt: A member of the Galactic Empire seems to be hunting Andor as he stares down at a hologram of the noted spy’s face

The trailer then jumps through a few different shots of characters from behind with an unknown person saying, ‘People are standing up,’ over the images. 

Cassian can then be seen jumping a ship into light seed and quickly taking off before an older woman says, ‘That’s what a reckoning sounds like.’ 

The show will be the latest in a long line of Star Wars content released to Disney+. Obi-Wan Kenobi was released in May and the television show Ahsoka starring Rosario Dawson is also set for release in the near future.
