Lucasfilm recently released a new trailer for the upcoming Disney+ series, “Star Wars: Andor”, which takes place prior to the events of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”.

The “Andor” series explores a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.

Diego Luna returns as Cassian Andor and is joined by cast members Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Fiona Shaw. The executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Tony Gilroy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna and Michelle Rejwan.

With the new trailer being released, many Star Wars fans took to social media to discuss how different “Andor” looks from the other Star Wars series.

Tony Gilroy is also the creator and showrunner for the series, and he recently spoke with Empire about the upcoming series, confirming that unlike other Disney+ Star Wars series like “The Mandalorian” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, they didn’t use the Stagecraft technology, also known as the Volume, which is an ultra-HD video-wall that offers in-camera effects and immersive digital environments for actors to work in.

“Yep, we’re old-school. We didn’t use StageCraft at all. It’s a choice that looks set to add even more grit and earthiness to a series all about capturing that texture, set at a time when the Star Wars galaxy is a particularly dark and dangerous place to be.”

Whereas the majority of “Obi-Wan Kenobi” and “The Mandalorian” was filmed in a studio, for “Andor”, Disney built some massive sets at Pinewood and in other locations.  Plus, filming also took place at different locations around the world to provide a more traditional look to the series. 

“Star Wars: Andor” will debut exclusively on Disney+ on its new date, Wednesday 21st September 2022, with a three-episode premiere.

Do you think “Andor” looks better than “The Mandalorian”?
