What Star Wars shows are coming to Disney Plus?
The previously announced Andor finally dropped a trailer and is coming out 31 August on Disney Plus. The series is set 5 years before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna reprises the role of rebel spy Cassian Andor. It shows his personal journey in the lead up to the rebellion against the Empire. It was revealed it is 12 episodes long and that a second series is in the works.
A new show, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, is debuting in 2023 and stars Jude Law.

The series plays out after Return Of The Jedi, which puts it close to existing series The Mandalorian and the upcoming Ahsoka.
