Go beyond the Force with Stellan Skarsgård as he delves into Luthen Rael’s motives and actions in the fight against the Empire 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 Maarva, and Mon Mothma to Syril Karn, every character is getting in on the action. And following on from the tenacious Vel Sartha is the man who served as the catalyst of rebellion. The cunning Luthen Rael.

The orchestrator of the fledgling rebellion has risen to become a major player in the fight against the Empire. What started as an insurrection has expanded into an all-out war against the Emperor’s tyranny. And alongside Mon Mothma and the partizan extremist Saw Gerrera, Luthen will be an integral founding member of what will ultimately become the Rebel alliance. But with the Empire’s vengeance soon to be unleashed surely it’s only a matter of time before his role in the rebellion is exposed. But until then, strap yourself in, jump to lightspeed and go beyond the Force!

THE SERIES

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.
