Star Wars: Andor – the new Star Wars original series starring Diego Luna as a Rebel spy – has arrived on Disney Plus. The 12-part show is exclusive to Disney Plus and the first three episodes debut this week. Disney Plus no longer offers a free trial in the UK or US but customers can still grab a good deal. Here's how to watch Star Wars: Andor from launch, including episode air dates and times.
Season premiere: Wednesday 21st Sept 2022
Global stream: Disney Plus (opens in new tab)
Best US Disney deal: Disney+ Bundle ($13.99) (opens in new tab)
Season finale: Wednesday 23rd November 2022
Cast: Diego Luna (Cassian Andor), Genevieve O'Reilly (Mon Mothma), Alex Ferns (Sgt. Kostek), Wilf Scolding (Noof Ousellam)
Set five years prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Andor explores thief-turned-spy Cassian Andor's formative years in the Rebellion, his toughest missions, and his journey to discover the difference he can make. While Rogue One wasn't to everyone's taste, Andor focuses on "gritty" spy games as opposed to flashy lightsaber battles.
So, how will Star Wars: Andor match up to The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and Obi-Wan Kenobi? It's too early to say, but the critical reception has been mostly positive. The Daily Telegraph calls Star Wars: Andor a "refreshingly grown-up prequel to movie Rogue One", while TechRadar calls it a "blood-pumping spy thriller that might be the best Star Wars show yet".
All episodes of Star Wars: Andor drop at 8am BST / 3am ET / 12.01am PT on Disney Plus one Wednesdays. The first three are available to watch now. The finale is set for 23rd November.
