Every Star Wars fan was surprised to hear that character Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) would receive its Disney+ series, but the show has been widely forgotten. That is until Disney just made a massive announcement about the future of the Andor.

Diego Luna joined the Star Wars universe in Rogue One, arguably one of the best films within the Skywalker saga following Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm.

Though Cassian Andor, Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn), and Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker) met their demise in the Star Wars film, the majority of these characters are reportedly returning in Andor on Disney+.

However, little to no news surrounding Andor has surfaced from The Walt Disney Company.

That is until Lucasfilm just announced that the anticipated series is receiving its panel at the 2022 Star Wars Celebration:

Star Wars Celebration returns in May, launching with a must-see showcase that will kick the weekend’s festivities into hyperdrive. On Thursday, May 26, Lucasfilm’s current crop of live-action filmmakers will be joined by special guests to discuss the many Star Wars adventures coming soon, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, and The Mandalorian.

Andor is joined by a panel for the Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series starring Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) and Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader), as well as a panel for The Mandalorian season three.

While the details surrounding this panel are limited, and it’s unclear what Disney will reveal about Andor, it’s safe to assume that an official teaser trailer will release for the series at this time, confirming when Andor will finally hit Disney+ this year or in 2023.
