Watch the first trailer for Endor coming to Disney Plus in August

Disney kicks off its Star Wars celebration event with a first look at Endor. The upcoming Disney Plus series stars Diego Luna, reprising his role as Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The show will hit the streaming platform on August 31.

Details about the show have been relatively light, although Disney's website describes the show as a "tense nail-biting espionage thriller". At today's panel, it was confirmed that the season would be 12 episodes long — much longer than a typical Star Wars show — and would take place five years before the events of Rogue One. "You're not going to recognize Cassian Andor in the beginning," Luna said during the panel. Here is the official description:

The Endor series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Endor's journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings to the fore the story of a rising rebellion against the Empire and how the people and the planet became involved. It's an era full of danger, deceit and intrigue where Cassian will embark on a path that is destined to turn him into a rebellious hero.

Endor is one of several Star Wars shows in development for Disney's streaming service. There's definitely a third season of The Mandalorian, but so is Obi-Wan Kenobi, a show based on Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka and a Lando Calrissian "event series".
