Disney+ has released a new trailer for its Star Wars TV series, Andor. A prequel to 2016’s Rogue One, the show chronicles the formation of a Rebel Alliance that opposes the Galactic Empire.

Among the rebels is Cassian Andor, a thief-turned-intelligence officer of the Rebel Alliance. Diego Luna reprises his role as Andor, a character that first appeared on-screen in Rogue One.

While Luna was briefly shown in a teaser released in May, the streamer’s new trailer offers a more in-depth look at the complex man.

“Cassian Andor, the empire is choking us so slowly, we’re starting not to notice,” a man tells Andor in a voice-over. “What I’m asking is this: wouldn’t you rather give it all to something real?”

Other members of the cast include Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Fiona Shaw. Like Luna, Forest Whitaker will return in his Rogue One role, portraying resistance fighter Saw Gerrera.

Diego Luna is also executive producing, alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Tony Gilroy, Sanne Wohlenberg and Michelle Rejwan. Andor was created by Tony Gilroy.

The three-episode premiere of Andor is slated for September 21 on Disney+.

In other entertainment news, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are rumored to reappear in Avengers: Secret Wars.
