Originally scheduled for an August 31 debut, the next Star Wars series’ premiere date has now been pushed back nearly a month and will now be available for streaming on September 21 with the first three episodes.

The video, which you can check out below along with the new key art poster, highlights the beginning of the rebellion as Luna’s Andor gets enlisted by Stellan Skarsgård’s mysterious character to fight against the oppressive Empire. It also confirms the return of Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera.

Disney+’s Andor features Diego Luna as he reprises his role of Cassian Andor. Set five years before the events of Rogue One, the series will follow the adventures of the titular hero rebel spy during the formative years of the Rebellion. It will explore tales of espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.

The new Star Wars prequel series will also star franchise alums Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma and Alan Tudyk as Cassian’s droid sidekick K-2SO, who reportedly won’t appear in the first season. Additional cast also includes Star Wars newcomers Denise Gough, Stellan Skarsgård, Kyle Soller, and Adria Arjona. It has also been rumored Ben Mendelsohn is reportedly reprising his role as Director Orson Callan Krennic.

Andor is executive produced by showrunner Tony Gilroy, who previously directed the reshoots for Rogue One. Gilroy was originally expected to direct three episodes but was forced to give up the position to Black Mirror‘s Toby Haynes due to pandemic-related travel issues.

The 2016 film was a critical and box-office hit with a gross of over $1 billion worldwide. It starred Luna, Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, and Ben Mendelsohn.https://i0.wp.com/storage.waploaded.com/images/0dec05a7061072b943525cde0b13c1e3.jpg
