news culture Star Wars Andor: Release date, history … We take stock of the Disney + series
A series on one of the main characters of the movie Star Wars: Rogue One has unveiled its first trailer. Release date, story, casting… the HelloSolar.info editorial staff takes stock of the series centered on the character of Cassian Andor.
What is the release date of the Star Wars Andor series?
The prequel to the movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released on August 31, 2022 and will feature 12 episodes. Star Wars: Andor will in fact be the longest Star Wars series in the Disney+ catalog. It therefore arrives a few months after Obi-Wan Kenobi at the rate of one or two episodes per week. A second season was also formalized which should bring this program to 24 episodes in total.
Like the other series in the franchise initiated by George Lucas in 1977, Star Wars: Andor will be released on the streaming platform Disney+. It is impossible for the moment to know if it will benefit (or not) from a Blue-ray / DVD release, but exclusivity obliges, it will never be available on the other SVOD services, except in the event of highly improbable closure of Disney + . All other Star Wars films and series are also available.

It’s unclear if these stories will run parallel or if the characters will interact to join forces in the face of the threat to the galaxy.
