Star Wars Andor S2 To Span Several Years
Lucasfilm

One big difference with the “Rogue One” prequel series “Andor” is set to be its scale.

So far the various “Star Wars” shows for the Disney + service have clocked in at 6-8 episodes each with “The Mandalorian” the only one to have multiple seasons so far.

“Andor” on the other hand will consist of twenty-four episodes with seasons clocking in at twelve episodes each. Speaking with Empire, creator Tony Gilroy says they aim to tell a five-year story over that span with the first season dealing with a single year.

Gilroy talked to the outlet about that first season saying:

“The scale of the show is so huge. Directors work in blocks of three episodes, so we did four blocks [in Season 1] of three episodes each. ”

As a result of that structure, their plans for the second season shifted so each three-episode block will then cover a year with the whole season spanning four years right up to the beginning of the “Rogue One” film:

“We looked and said, ‘Wow, it’d be really interesting if we come back, and we use each block to represent a year. We’ll move a year closer with each block ‘. From a narrative point of view, it’s really exciting to be able to work on something where you do a Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and then jump a year. ”

One big difference from “Rogue One” will be the focus which will be much more character-focused with star Gabriel Luna saying:

“Rogue One is more about an event than the actual journey of [the] characters. It’s quite amazing to start a show where it’s not about where we can end – it’s about, how did we end there? ”

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. Cassian embarks on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.

“Andor” is set to launch on the service on August 31st.
