From Boba Fett to Emporer Palpatine, the House of Mouse has been giving a second chance for fans to see more of the iconic characters from George Lucas's classic space western.

What is Andor about?
Taking place before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Andor sees Diego Luna (Y tu mamá también) reprising his role as the scrappy Cassian Andor. Quick-witted and stealthy, Cassian starts to feel the grip of the Empire tighten on the galaxy and ruin the lives of the less fortunate. Motivated by a mysterious political figure (Stellan Skarsgård) and various other shifty scoundrels, Cassian starts to make moves against the Empire and soon ends up in the early stages of the Rebellion.

The series was created by Oscar-nominee Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton, The Bourne Legacy), who also co-wrote Rogue One. Along with Luna and Skarsgård, the cast also includes Adria Arjona (Morbius), Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) and Alex Ferns (The Batman). A more interesting casting is Genevieve O'Reilly (The Dry), reprising her role as the famed Rebel leader Mon Mothma from the original trilogy.
