Andor welcomes back these iconic Rebels!

Genevieve O'Reilly Andor Star Wars Mon Mothma

A new poster for the upcoming Disney Plus Star Wars series Andor features a collection of Rogue One characters, including Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera and Genevieve O’Reilly’s Mon Mothma.

Andor serves as a prequel to Rogue One, the story of the spies who captured the plans for the Empire’s first Death Star, delivering them to the Rebel Alliance immediately before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The series will explore the origins of Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor.

A newly released poster for the series features both the rebel extremist Saw Gerrera and Rebel Alliance leader Mon Mothma.

Andor Revisits Rogue One‘s Rebellion

Andor takes place when the Empire is at its height and the Rebellion is yet to score its first major victory against Imperial forces.

Andor will show Genevieve O’Reilly’s Mon Mothma when she is still serving in the Imperial Senate, before she has committed to fighting the Empire on military terms. Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera, originally introduced in the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars series (voiced by Andrew Kishino), is an extremist rebel who has long been fighting the Empire by any means necessary.

The Star Wars series’ latest poster shows these characters alongside Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor and a host of new faces. Check it out below:

The first season of Andor takes place five years before the events of Rogue One. The second season, which has already been confirmed by Lucasfilm, will span the remaining four years up until Cassian Andor joins the Death Star mission seen in Rogue One.

Here is the synopsis for Andor:

“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.”
