When we meet Andor again in the trailer, he has infiltrated the Empire (although it appears the Empire invaded his home planet first), even wearing a drab gray Imperial uniform.
“To steal from the Empire, you just walk in like you belong,” Andor says in the trailer. “They can’t imagine that someone like me would ever enter their house.”
There are the necessary appearances of stormtroopers, TIE fighters, and other menacing symbols of the Empire. We meet a ruthless Empire officer played by Denise Gough, watch Fiona Shaw’s unknown character shed a tear, and get a glimpse into the lavish life of Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly), who, as viewers know, will lead a life revolution.
“It is the beginning of the origins of a revolution,” Luna said Monday. “It reminds us of what we are capable of, what we are all capable of.”
The first three episodes of “Andor” will begin streaming on September 21, several weeks later than originally planned, on Disney+.
