Disney’s Andoro is slated to re-introduce Diego Luna as Cassian Andor in the Star Wars spin-off series. The character was first presented in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which explained how the Rebellion obtained the Death Star blueprints in A New Hope and has since become a staple of the Star Wars canon. The live-action Disney series Andor is a prequel to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, focusing on the escapades of intelligence officer Cassian Andor. The story takes place before the historical battle in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope that destroyed the Death Star.
Andor will be five years old, starting in 5BBY and lasting two seasons. The first season, which will consist of 12 episodes, will cover one year of Cassian’s time in The Rebellion, while the second season will cover four years.

The character of Captain Cassian Jeron Andor
Captain Andor, the protagonist of the series, was born on the planet Fest in 26BBY and grew up orphaned during the terrible Clone Wars period when he lost his parents. He then joined an insurgent cell supported by the Confederation of Independent Planets until the Empire was victorious. After that, Andor joined a number of anti-Empire organizations before being officially recruited by the Rebel Alliance.
He was barely 26 years old when he was killed on Scarif in Rogue One. Cassian Andor wouldn’t be killed in Rogue One. He was supposed to be picked up by a rebel ship. However, this conclusion was changed, and the crew of the Rogue One sacrificed themselves to ensure that the Death Star schemes were delivered to the Rebels. This was done to avoid any doubt about their attitude during the rebellion of the first trilogy.
