When the series Andorra was it announced?

At the beginning of November 2018 Lucasfilm, a subsidiary of Disney, announced its intention to launch the construction site of a new live action television series, after The Mandalorian. But doing it took a long time, because of the coronavirus pandemic, which broke out in the West at the same time, in the spring of 2020.

or Andorra is the second series officially announced by Lucasfilm, it turns out that it will finally be the fourth to be released. Meanwhile, two more works have been launched: The Book of Boba Fettwith seven episodes between late 2021 and early 2022, and the miniseries Obi-Wan-Kenobiwith six episodes, which will air in May and June 2022.

What is the distribution ofAndorra ?

obviously, Andorra wouldn’t have been possible without the return of Diego Luna to the cast. The British-Mexican actor plays Cassian Andor in the spin-off film RogueOne, released in 2016. The series that bears the name of the hero whose parts he lends, his presence is very important. But we also find other familiar faces in the saga Star Wars.

We will definitely see Forest Whitaker, who also plays RogueOne, as Saw Gerrera, a rebel leader. Genevieve O’Reilly also returns as Mon Mothma: she played this rebel leader and galactic senator in episode III, Revenge of the Sith (2005) and RogueOne. Some recruits are new faces for the saga.

Among the names that could be mentioned is Stellan Skarsgård (dune, Will Hunting, Chernobyl), Alex Lawther (The Final Duel, The French Dispatch, The End of the World), but also Kyle Soller, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough and Adria Arjona. The characters they embody are new or their identity remains to be discovered in the series.

What a story for the series Andorra ?

Andorra is supposed to be a spy thriller “WHO” explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire “. It will focus on Cassian Andor, one of the protagonists of RogueOnewhich is also the first — and now the best — spin-off film of Star Wars from the Disney era.

According to Disney, Andor ” will explore a new perspective on the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series tells the story of the beginning of the rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets become involved in it. It’s a time filled with danger, deceit and intrigue as Cassian embarks on the path destined to become a rebel hero. »

where place Andorra compared to the movies?

For obvious script reasons, Andorra won’t happen after the movie RogueOne. So before the series takes place, five years before the events of the feature film. This is a series that takes place mostly between Episode III (Revenge of the Sith) and IV (A new hope), but closer to the second than the first.

RogueOne happen before A new hope : the end of the first film begins with the beginning of the second. Because of this, Andorra is a series that happened five years before A new hope. This is the second live action series to happen this season. The other is the miniseries Obi-Wan Kenobiwhich also takes place between Episodes III and IV.

A series with such dramatic stakes?

This is one of the difficulties when preparing a prequel to a work: we know in advance that some characters are not dangerous completely without anything, which has the effect of defusing some dramatic springs. We already know that Cassian Andor, Saw Gerrera and Mon Mothma will not die in the series. As for the others, they are unknown characters at the moment.

As for the narrative, we face a somewhat similar problem: we suspect that the series Andorra will not be able to record the fall of the Galactic Empire, because its end will not happen until later. Perhaps, the series will be forced to limit itself to relatively secondary stakes. It remains to be seen if the writers will be able to create some surprises.

Trailers, photos and posters ofAndorra

Lucasfilm began at the end of December 2020 to share videos on Andorra, first with a preview of the set and behind the scenes and then, on May 26, a first look. The first trailer was released on August 1. At the same time, various social media on Star Wars increasingly showering the public with photos and information.

When the series Andorra will he come out?

One after the other Andorra will be available from September 21, 2022, with the release of the first three episodes, then another at the rate of one per week. This release is quite far from two other highly anticipated super-productions: House of the Dragon on the side of HBO and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power on the side of Amazon Prime Video.

The series has 12 episodes for one season. A second season is in the works, which should also have 12 episodes. This second part is the last, because it is expected that the adventures will bring Cassian Andor to the events of RogueOne. Probably, season 2 will be released at the end of 2023, but nothing is formal yet.

Where to see Andorra streaming?

One after the other Andorra will be available only on Disney+, the video on demand (SVOD) service. It will be released at the same time in the United States and in France.
