Starring Diego Luna, reprising his role as Cassian Andor from the film, the show will follow his journey to becoming an integral member of the Rebel Alliance.

The trailer features several explosive action scenes and a darker tone in line with Rogue One, which has been hailed as an intense war film.

Also starring in Andor is Stellan Skarsgard, Fiona Shaw and Adria Arjona. Forest Whitaker and Genevieve O'Reilly will also reprise their roles as Saw Gerrera and Mon Mothma respectively.

Luna has previously talked to Variety about reprising the role of Andor: “It’s quite unique, because we know what Cassian is capable of, but we’re going to meet him when he doesn’t know he’s capable of that.

"We’re going to meet him when life is tough, it’s a very dark and interesting life because it’s just a regular guy that suddenly has to become part of something bigger, has to become part of a community that rises.

"It’s the beginning of the origins of a revolution, and it’s a beautiful story because it reminds us what we are capable of, what we are all capable of. There’s no Jedis around—it’s people having to take control.”
