‘Star Wars’: New trailer for ‘Andor’ explores the origins of the rebellion

Diego Luna returns to the “Star Wars” universe in “Andor,” a prequel to “Rogue One,” which was itself a prequel to “Episode IV: A New Hope.” of a young Cassian Andor.
The latest trailer reveals a little more about Andor’s evolution from common thief to galactic martyr and shows what viewers can expect from cast members Stellan Skarsgård, “Morbius” star Adria Arjona and Forest Whitaker, who reprises his role as extremist Saw Gerrera.

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.”

A hooded Skarsgård appears and encourages Andor to “give it his all to do something real” – overthrow the Empire, perhaps? Whitaker, whose Gerrera has yet to go completely insane from the loss and that mind-blowing slimy monster Bor Gullet, seems set to go to war.

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.

Appearing on “Good Morning America” ​​to introduce the new trailer, Luna saying hosts that his character begins his journey as a “regular guy” who finds himself thrown into extraordinary circumstances, something viewers can relate to.

“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+.
