How to watch Andor: The Star Wars Rogue One spin-off hits Disney Plus this week with a three-episode premiere. Here’s how you can stream the new Star Wars show.
Cassian Andor was among the heroes of Rogue One, the prequel to Episode IV, arguably the best Star Wars movie since Disney bought out Lucasfilm. Now he’s getting his own prequel.
The show will focus on Captain Andor’s exploits in the early days of the rebellion against the Empire, prior to the events of Rogue One, when he is paired with heroine Jyn Erso to embark on the quest to steal the Death Star plans.
Diego Luna will reprise his role for the 12-episodes of Andor Season 1. Here’s how you can enjoy Andor on Disney Plus, starting with this week’s premiere.

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.”
