We’ve got eyes on the rebel spies! On Thursday, stars from Lucasfilm’s Andor gathered for a galactic launch event at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. With action, adventure, and suspense filmed against a cinematic landscape, the first three episodes of Season 1 premiere exclusively on Disney+ on Wednesday, September 21.
Stars Diego Luna, Genevieve O’Reilly, Adria Arjona, Kyle Soller, Fiona Shaw, and Ben Bailey Smith were joined by filmmakers and executives Tony Gilroy, Kathleen Kennedy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Michelle Rejwan, Toby Haynes, Benjamin Caron, Dan Gilroy, Beau Willimon, John Gilroy, and Nicholas Britell for a walk down the red carpet.
Andor, a spy thriller from Lucasfilm filmed over two 12-episode seasons, takes place five years before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The era featured in Andor is filled with danger, deception, and intrigue where Cassian (Luna) will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero. Andorpresents Star Wars from a different perspective, focusing on everyday people whose lives are affected by the Empire. The decisions they make have real consequences, and the stakes for them—and the galaxy—couldn’t be higher.
Haynes, White, and Caron direct specific episodes, and Luna, Kennedy, Tony Gilroy, Wohlenberg, and Rejwan executive produce. Tony Gilroy is also the creator and showrunner.
