The new “Star Wars” television series “Andor” promises an inside look at the people who eventually become heroes in the ongoing battle in a galaxy far, far away. distant.

“Andor,” which premieres on the Disney+ streaming service Wednesday, is a prequel to the 2016 hit movie “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” The main character is the titular Cassian Andor, played by Diego Luna.   

“There has to be action and adventure and that big sci-fi scope that you expect from ‘Star Wars,’ but at the same time, we can afford to be different,” Luna told Reuters.   

The 12-episode series aims to answer the question “what was life like for people to be willing to sacrifice everything for a cause, you know? I don’t think we’ve seen that,” Luna said.     

“I don’t think we have been in the most intimate lives of the people who had to live under the control of the Empire. What were those dark times like? In terms of everyday life, now we are going to realize that,” he added.     

“Andor” is set five years before the events of “Rogue One,” in which Luna’s character sacrifices herself for the greater good. Disney (NYSE: DIS ) has already ordered a second season that will lead up to the start of the film.   

“I think the bottom line is that we’re trying to make this whole thing real,” said Tony Gilroy, writer of “Rogue One” and “Andor.”

“We want everything to be real, real emotions, real dangers, real threats, real fear, real betrayal, real love, real despair, real families, real domestic drama, real adventure,” he said.
