Before Andor’s release on September 21, Disney will re-release Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. On August 26th, the 2016 picture will return to IMAX theatres in the United States alongside an “exclusive look” at the forthcoming Disney+ series. It is expected that the preview will expand on the most recent Andor trailer that Disney released on August 1. Before Diego Luna reprises his role as Cassian Andor, Rogue One’s rerelease will provide Star Wars fans with an opportunity to rewatch the film.

Andor is set five years before the events of Rogue One, which is also a prequel to A New Hope. It recounts the origins of the revolt. The series is marketed as a spy thriller by Disney. Diego Luna is not the only actor returning to the franchise with Andor. Forest Whitaker and Genevieve O’Reilly reprise their roles as Mon Mothma and Saw Gerrera, respectively.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was initially set to premiere on August 31, but Disney pushed it back to allow the show more time to establish an audience. The first three episodes of Andor will premiere concurrently, with the following episodes airing every Wednesday thereafter.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is largely regarded as one of the best Star Wars films produced during the Disney era. During its initial theatrical run, the film grossed more than $1 billion and even won two Academy Awards. Apart from theatre screening, the movie is also available to stream on Desny+.
