Andor: New Star Wars Show Gets a Delay, and a New Trailer

Disney has revealed a new trailer for Andor – but also revealed that it's been delayed to September 21.

The upcoming Disney+ series was originally set to begin on August 31, but has been pushed back almost a month. It will now begin with a three-episode premiere.

Disney hasn't explained the delay, but it's likely been made to stop quite as much of an overlap with another major new Disney+ show, She-Hulk, which begins on August 17.

The new trailer itself shows off a grittier take on the Star Wars universe than we're used to, juxtaposing the splendour of the Empire with Cassian Andor's scrappy, burgeoning Rebel Alliance.

We also see a lot of Stellan Skarsgård's Luthen Rael, who appears to be recruiting rebels, including Forest Whitaker's Saw Garrera, who has appeared in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the Clone Wars animated series, and video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

We also got a new poster for the show, as well as a number of new stills:

Andor will follow the story of Cassian Andor, the rebel spy played by Diego Luna who first featured in Rogue One. Announced back in 2018, this is one of Lucasfilm's longest-running projects. It's designed to look different to past Star Wars projects, using far more practical elements than the heavy visual trickery of recent shows and movies.

The show is set five years before the Death Star plans are stolen, and could include characters who were cut from other Star Wars films. Despite not having begun, it seems there are already plans for a second season, which may see the return of sassy droid K-2SO.
