Andor follows Cassian Andor, a character who first appeared in the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The series will serve as a prequel to the film in the early days after the Galactic Republic became empire.

The first official trailer opens with rebel soldiers watching in fear as a sound moves birds on a lush green planet.

They look up into the sky as a huge warship flies low over the planet.

Then Cassian is seen as a child, then as a soldier and his voice is heard.

‘Steal from the realm? You just walk in like you belong. They are so proud of themselves. They’re so fat and content they can’t imagine someone like me coming into their house,” he says in a low voice.

‘The realm is slowly suffocating your soul, we don’t begin to notice. All I ask is this, wouldn’t you rather give everything to something real?’ asked Stellan’s character. “I need all the heroes I can get.”

Forest is seen sharing, “For the greater good.”

‘Call it what you like’, Stellan adds.

‘Let’s call it war,’ concludes Forest.

The teaser trailer shared in late May showed some of the same material. The clip started with a recording of a man waking up a small, idyllic town to the loud ringing of a bell in a tower.

A ship then crashes to Earth and stormtroopers begin marching on the city and planet.

Citizens run around town, hiding weapons and crawling into their homes as ships carrying clones around in Star Wars: Episode II- Attack of the Clones and and Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith bring a legion to the small town.

As clones march through the city, Andor first appears, hiding behind a wall and waiting in the shadows.

Genevieve O’Reilly also appears in the trailer, playing her role as Mon Mothma from both Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One. She says she is being watched as she walks through a busy dinner party.

Stellan Skarsgård emerges and looks through powerful binoculars at something far in the distance.

“Soon these days will end,” he says as he stands on the grassy knoll. “There will be no rules in the future.”

The trailer then jumps through a few different shots of characters from behind with an unknown person saying, “People stand up” over the footage.

Cassian can then watch a ship jump into light seed and quickly take off before an elderly woman says, “That’s what a reckoning sounds like.”

The show is the latest in a long line of Star Wars content released for Disney+. Obi-Wan Kenobi was released in May and the television show Ahsoka starring Rosario Dawson is also slated for release in the near future.
