Latest Andor trailer highlights birth of the Star Wars rebellion (and hides a 3-week delay)

Witness the birth of the Rebellion that captured our hearts in minds in the original 1977 Star Wars film with the upcoming live-action series Andor. In a new trailer released by Disney+ Monday morning, the 12-episode series named after Diego Luna's Andor comes into focus as more than just a solo story - but an ensemble effort of the heroes you never knew who walked so Leia, Luke, Han, Chewie and others could run.

Here is the second trailer for Lucasfilm's Andor:

Hidden amongst the fireworks of this new trailer is a slight disappointment - Andor has been delayed from an August 31 debut to September 21 - albiet, now with news it'll debut with three episodes all at once. No reason is given for the delay. Why a three-episode chunk? The 12-episode first season was filmed in three-episode chunks, with each chunk directed and written by the same crew - like a three-part film. Each subsequent chunk moves a year closer to the events of Rogue One.

Andor is a prequel to the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story film - primarily due to the reprisal of Diego Luna's Ando, but in many ways its a prequel to the original Star Wars trilogy - much in the same way Rogue One was.

"The Andor series explores a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make," reads Disney+'s description of the series. "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 season of Andor will debut September 21 on Disney+, with a second season already greenlit.
