Star Wars: Andor is an American television series created by Tony Gilroy for the streaming service Disney+. A prequel to the Star Wars spin-off film Rogue One (2016), the series follows thief-turned-Rebel spy Cassian Andor during the five years leading up to the events of the film.
The Andor series will center around Cassian Andor, a Rebel Alliance intelligence officer played by Diego Luna in the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The series will be set prior to the events of the film, and will follow Andor and his team as they undertake dangerous missions for the Rebellion.
It’s time to travel back to a galaxy far, far away, where we will see Cassian Andor, the breakout star of Rogue One, in a dark and frightening origin story. So get ready to jump to lightspeed (Diego Luna).
Cassian Andor: Who is he? In order for Luke Skywalker to successfully destroy the terrifying space weapon, Cassian Andor, a member of the Rebel Alliance, was crucial in obtaining the Death Star designs. This series explores what ultimately led him to become a dedicated freedom fighter, but years before that fateful expedition, he was much less interested in the idea of rebellion.
Mon Mothma, who is he? Mon Mothma is a politician who has served in the galactic senate since the Republic’s founding and has maintained her place as a result of her oath of devotion to the new Empire. She is, however, supporting resistance groups covertly and preparing to retaliate against the repressive government. Mon Mothma went on to rise to prominence in the Rebel Alliance, as demonstrated in the 1983 film Return of the Jedi.

Where is Andor in Star Wars? (spoilers)
Andor dies at the end of the film, along with his team, after going on a rogue mission to steal the structural plans for the Death Star to give the Rebellion a chance at destroying the planet-killing weapon. Yes, those Death Star plans. “Andor” is Cassian Andor’s (Diego Luna) origin story.
Andor acknowledges Cassian’s fate with a line so overt that it can’t even be considered an Easter egg. Those who have seen Rogue One know how part of this story ends, and Andor doesn’t rely on us forgetting that. However, that directness, and the way it unapologetically rejects the nostalgic ennui that has long defined this franchise, make Andor better.
The first 12-episode season will follow Cassian for a year, namely the year before he decided to join Rogue One. At the TCA press conference, Gilroy declared, “I’m going to challenge everything you think about Cassian.”
