Everyone is watching some in the trailer for Andor. What could it be? Whatever it is, it’s not Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor.
As Lucasfilm continues its massive celebration of Star Wars a day after the original film’s 45th anniversary, having already released a trailer pasture, the company also debuted the very first look at another upcoming series. After the release of Disney+ on Friday from Obi Wan Kenobi comes Andorwhich unpacks the underdog story of Luna’s character before the events of Villain One.
But it’s almost a full minute – half the trailer – before we finally see Andor’s big return. Then radio silence from the title character. Serious. When we get trailers from Obi Wan or pasture, we get big, sweeping shots of the key recurring roles. But Diego Luna is nowhere to be found in this first look, which features more of Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) instead. Give us more Diego Luna, Disney+!
Unfortunately we have to work with what we have here. The trailer begins with a grand bell-pealing ceremony that recurs with loud “BRONGGGG” noises throughout the trailer. Stormtroopers crush the ground beneath their feet, scaring innocent civilians into hiding. Everyone is running from the Empire.
Luna made his first debut in the Star Wars universe in the 2016 action film Villain One, which followed the events leading up to the destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance. Unfortunately, the mission had no survivors – meaning this series is obviously a prequel saga, perhaps tracing Andor’s journey into the events of Villain One.
“I mean, he sacrificed himself consciously, soberly, without vanity or recognition. Who’s doing it?” Creator Tony Gilroy told the series. “That’s what this first season is about. It’s about him being really anti-revolutionary, cynical and lost and kind of messy.”
When speaking to vanity fairteased Luna and Gilroy as well Andor as a refugee story, particularly focusing on the residents of Andor’s homeland fleeing the Empire. That explains the rest of the trailer, doesn’t it?
Andor premieres August 31 on Disney+. We have plenty of them Obi Wan Episodes to binge until then!
