The revolution was delayed.
The Stars Wars series Andor, originally scheduled to premiere August 31, has been bumped back to September 21—but Disney+ gave us plenty to feast our eyes on in theseries’ August 1 trailer.
Cassian Andor (in the trailer)Diego Luna() announces his plan to infiltrate Empire with a very clear directive.
“To steal from the Empire, you just walk in like you belong,”He says it in the trailer. “They’re so proud of themselves. They’re so fat and satisfied. They can’t imagine that someone like me would ever get inside their house.”
Once inside, he receives tutelage from Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgård), who is new to the Star Wars universe.
“The Empire is choking us so slowly,” Luthen tells Andor. “We’re starting not to notice. What I’m asking is this, wouldn’t you rather give it all to something real?”
Luthen, as part of his mission, begins to assemble an armoury, which includes Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker). After Kleya (Adria ArjonaLuthen tells ) that she is worried about him losing his touch. Luthen rebuts by saying: “I’m not slipping. I’ve just been hiding for too long.”
