Go beyond the Force and join Fiona Shaw as he gives an inside look at the unshakable Maarva Andor in the hit Disney Plus series Star Wars: Andor
Although its inaugural season has reached its gripping climax, the adventures of Cassian Andor are far from over. The great team at StarWars.com have dropped a series of featurettes that will explore the awesome new characters that have carried Tony Gilroy’s series forwards. From Cassian to Mon Mothma, and Vel Sartha to Syril Karn, every character is getting in on the action. And following on from Kyle Soller’s relentless Syril Karn is Cassian’s adopted mother Maarva. The former president of the Daughters of Ferrix played an integral part in the uprising against the Empire and delivered a galvanizing speech from beyond the grave that sparked a rebellion. So strap yourself in, jump to lightspeed and go beyond the Force!
The “Andor” series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. 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.
CAST & CREW
Diego Luna returns as Cassian Andor and is joined by cast members Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller. The executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna, and Michelle Rejwan. Tony Gilroy is the creator and showrunner.
Even though the series has some of the lowest viewing figures in Disney+ Star Wars history, the show has delivered on the mythology of the rebellion in spades. The series fleshed out the partisan uprising and delivered a sensational finale that set the stage for the second season. And that alone is an exciting prospect.
Whether or not the second season can build upon the foundations of the first remains to be seen. But, one thing is for certain. The series introduced us to many new facets of the Rebellion, and thanks to StarWars.com, we can explore them here in far greater detail than ever before. So check back regularly because we’ll be updating the site with the latest installments as soon as they drop.
Star Wars: Andor is streaming exclusively on Disney Plus now.
