It’s been a few months since the Official Teaser for “Star Wars: Andor” was released and now as the summer begins to wrap itself up we get the full-on Official Trailer for the series. As most know, this takes place before the events of the amazing “Rogue One” film. Let’s take a look down below shall we? I’ve added some expanded cast and new artwork as well. Enjoy.
The Premise: Beginning five years before the events of “Rogue One”, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters during the time that a Rebel Alliance is forming in opposition to the Galactic Empire. One of these characters is Cassian Andor, a thief who becomes a revolutionary and eventually joins the Rebellion. (c/o Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told I am as excited about the Star Wars content on Disney+ as I am about the Marvel Studios stuff because its just what my nerd side needed during these still pandemic times. I loved the “Rogue One” film that let us first meet Cassian Andor so getting some backstory on the character will be awesome and this looks to be an exciting story. This is what the fans need, an expansion to the mythology that let’s us move a bit from the long established stuff. The galaxy is a big place after all. What do you readers think about this one and are you planning on tuning in when the show premieres in September? Chime in down below and I will see you next time around. Please stay safe out there. I still think we need to move cautiously.
