Disney+ dropped off the first official teaser trailer for Andor, the platform’s upcoming “tense nail-biting spy thriller” starring Diego Luna, during its Star Wars Celebration event on Thursday. The series, which sees Luna reprise his role as Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, will premiere on August 31.

The streamer confirmed that season one will be 12 episodes long and take place five years prior to the happenings of Rogue One. While plot details remain largely under wraps, Luna told the panel that viewers are “not going to recognize” Andor at first. “I cannot wait for you to meet him,” he said.

Disney+ promises that the series, which is directed by Tony Gilroy, 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,” the official description continues. “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.”

Aside from Luna, the series stars Adria Arjona, Stellan Skarsgard, Genevieve O’Reilly and Denise Gough. Watch the first official teaser above.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Top Gun: Maverick is on track to become Tom Cruise’s career-best opening.
