Disney+ Schedule Additions: New TV & Movies Arriving October 17-23

The first season of Andor has already passed its midpoint.

On Wednesday, October 19, Disney+ will release the seventh installment in the latest Star Wars series. Disney+’s Andor features Diego Luna as he reprises his role of Cassian Andor. Set five years before the events of Rogue One, the series will follow the adventures of the titular hero rebel spy during the formative years of the Rebellion. It will explore tales of espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.

The Andor cast also sees Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma, Stellan Skarsgård as Luthen Rael, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, Adria Arjona as Bix Caleen, Denise Gough as Dedra Meero, Kyle Soller as Syril, Fiona Shaw as Maarva, and Faye Marsay.

Andor is executive produced by showrunner Tony Gilroy, who previously directed the reshoots for Rogue One. Gilroy was originally expected to direct three episodes but was forced to give up the position to Black Mirror‘s Toby Haynes due to pandemic-related travel issues.
