When we re-meet Andor in the trailer, he has infiltrated the Empire (though it appears the Empire has first invaded his home planet), even donning a drab gray Imperial uniform.
“To steal from the Empire, you just walk in like you belong,” Andor says in the trailer. “They can’t imagine that someone like me would ever get inside their house.”
There are the requisite appearances of stormtroopers, TIE fighters and other menacing symbols of the Empire. We meet a ruthless officer of the Empire played by Denise Gough, watch Fiona Shaw’s unknown character shed a tear and catch a glimpse of the lavish life of Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly), who, viewers know, will go on to lead a revolution.
“It’s the beginning of the origins of a revolution,” Luna said on Monday. “It reminds us what we’re capable of — what we’re all capable of.”
The first three episodes of “Andor” start streaming on September 21 — several weeks later than originally planned — on Disney+.
