Star Wars! Nothing but Star Wars! Dun dun dun dun! With this year’s Disney Investor Day comes news of more Star Wars. Disney Plus has given us two seasons of The Mandalorian and fans of this franchise are looking to see what’s next to take place in a galaxy far, far, away. Finally, we have our answer in the form of Disney Plus’s Andor.
The show starring Diego Luna as Cassian Andor was announced two years back and we’ve been waiting to hear more on what the adventure of the Rogue One character will find himself in.
At the event, a sizzle reel was shown of the hard work put into the twelve-episode show. Lucasfilm head Katheleen Kennedy showed us at the event a sizzle reel of the hard work being put into the series. The two-minute reel is chalked full with storyboards, testimony from the folks behind the creature design, and that familiar face, Diego Luna.
Check out the clip below.

The clip drops more info that the show will have 200 named cast members, a lot of cool set designs, and plenty of action for everyone. Let’s not forget the fact that the show will follow the same style of filmmaking to give it that grand cinematic feel that is becoming very common with these programs.
No other news was brought in but it has been confirmed in the past that Alan Tudyk is set to return as K-2S0. We would have to wonder if anyone from Rogue One will be popping up in the Disney Plus series.
Andor‘s previous description states that the show “follows the adventures of Rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Andor, which he originated in the 2016 film. The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to the galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.”
That looks to still be the case with this sizzle reel. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
