Andor follows Cassian Andor, a character who first appeared in the 2016 movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. 

The series will serve as a prequel to the film in the early days after the Galactic Republic became the Empire. 

The first official trailer begins with rebel soldiers looking apprehensive as a noise stirs birds on a lush green planet.

They look up in the sky as a massive battle ship is seen flying low over the planet.

Then Cassian is seen as a child then a soldier and his voice is heard. 

‘To steal form the empire? You just walk in like you belong. They’re so proud of themselves. They’re so fat and satisfied they can’t imagine that someone like me could get inside their house,’ he says in a low voice.

The rebellion begins: A first poster for the new series, which launches September 21 on Disney+, was shared as well

‘The empire is choking your soul slowly, we’re starting not to notice. All I am asking is this, wouldn’t you rather give it all to something real?’ asked Stellan’s character. ‘I need all the heroes I can get.’

Forest is seen as he shared, ‘For the greater good.’

‘Call it what you want,’ adds Stellan.

‘Let’s call it war,’ finishes Forest.

The teaser trailer that was shared in late May showed some of the same material. The clip began with a shot of a man waking up a small, idyllic town with loud clangs from a bell in a tower. 

A ship then crashes down to the earth and stormtroopers begin to march on the town and the planet. 

Citizens rush around town, hiding weapons and huddling in their homes while ships that ferried clones around in Star Wars: Episode II- Attack of the Clones and and Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith bring a legion to the small town. 

As clones march through the city, Andor first appears, hiding behind a wall and waiting in the shadows.

Genevieve O’Reilly also appears in the trailer, reprising her role as Mon Mothma from both Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One. She says she’s being watched as she walks through a crowded dinner party. 

Stellan Skarsgård pops up and looks out at something far in the distance through a pair of high powered binoculars. 

‘Soon enough, these days will end,’ he says as he stands on the grassy knoll. ‘There will be no rules going forward.’

The trailer then jumps through a few different shots of characters from behind with an unknown person saying, ‘People are standing up,’ over the images. 

Cassian can then be seen jumping a ship into light seed and quickly taking off before an older woman says, ‘That’s what a reckoning sounds like.’ 

The show will be the latest in a long line of Star Wars content released to Disney+. Obi-Wan Kenobi was released in May and the television show Ahsoka starring Rosario Dawson is also set for release in the near future.

Family Photo! JJ Watt Shares Snap With 1-Month-Old Son Koa and Wife Kealia

Published

on

Their first Thanksgiving as a family of three! Arizona Cardinals defensive end JJ Watt shared a photo of his 1-month-old baby with Chicago Red Stars player Kealia Ohai Watt as they celebrated.

“More to be thankful for than ever,” the NFL star, 33, wrote via Instagram on Thursday, November 24. “Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!”

The photo showed JJ holding baby Koa, who was wrapped in a blue blanket that matched his dad’s Nike sneakers. The football player was comfortable in a gray sweatshirt and blue jeans while his wife, 30, donned black cargo pants with a white tank top. Both were smiling at their little one for the snap. Kealia replied with two red hearts.

The duo welcomed Koa one month ago. “Love and happiness have reached heights we never even knew existed. Koa James Watt 10.23.22,” the spouses, who married in February 2020, wrote in a joint Instagram post on October 25, alongside a sweet shot of the couple cradling their newborn in the hospital.

On November 11, Watt was asked how little Koa felt about a decision by referee Clete Blakeman mistakenly blew dead a play in which Watt was about to walk into the endzone. Watt joked that his son was livid.

“He was watching so he saw it. He was pissed. He was pretty pissed. It took us a while to get him to bed. We had to calm him down because he wanted to call Clete himself. And I told him, ‘Son, your day will come,’” he joked with reporters ahead of Week 11.

He also spoke about appearing on HBO’s Hard Knocks with Kealia and Koa, joking that their dogs were the real stars. “Any time that I can share the screen with my wife and my son and our dogs, I have to — my wife and I are unbelievably proud of our dogs. They knew the pressure was on and they stepped up to the plate in a way that I’ve never seen,” he quipped. “Our dogs don’t act like that on any walk we’ve ever been on and they were phenomenal. We need Hard Knocks cameras 24/7 when we go on walks because our dogs really crushed it. Tex and Finn — they rise to the occasion.”

JJ and Kealia announced in June that a human would be joining their fur babies, sharing that they “could not be more excited” to be expecting in the fall. They didn’t have a sex reveal but casually dropped that they were having a son in passing. It was so nonchalant that fans wondered if JJ made a mistake. One asked if he accidentally let the news slip, to which he replied, “We didn’t do a gender reveal, we just found out and then told people when they asked.”

The new dad always puts family first, and he’s instilling that in the next generation of the family. JJ has already been putting Koa on FaceTime with cousins Logan, 2, and Brayden, 23 months — who Derek shares with wife Gabriella Watt — he revealed in a birthday tribute to the Pittsburgh Steelers player earlier this month.

“All the football games in the yard when we were kids, the mini hockey battles in the basement, etc. Now we’re FaceTiming each other so our kids can see each other. (Still playing football though!) Crazy! Happy Birthday bro!!” JJ wrote via Instagram on November 7.

The Watt family has had a lot to celebrate in 2022. The athletes’ youngest brother, TJ Watt, tied the knot with his wife, Dani Rhodes, in July.

Published

Beloved Borscht Belt comic and actor Freddie Roman, best known for his roasts as part of New York City’s Friars Club and later Comedy Central, died at the age of 85 on Saturday, his family said.

Roman suffered a heart attack in Boynton Beach, Florida, his daughter confirmed to Deadline.

The comic had spent most of his life in show business after he was given the opportunity to emcee at his uncle and grandfather’s Crystal Spring Hotel in the Catskills when he was just 15.

Roman, born Fred Kirschenbaum, and his old-timey jokes were a fixture at nightclub venues in cities like New York and Las Vegas.

He served as the dean, or president, of The Friar’s Club and took shots at celebrities like Jerry Stiller, Hugh Hefner, Drew Carey, Rob Reiner and Chevy Chase on Comedy Central’s Roasts.

He more recently co-starred in Amazon’s hit comedy series “Red Oaks,” playing a curmudgeon member of a Jewish country club in New Jersey. He also made guest appearances on shows “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and “The Tonight Show.”

Roman is survived by his wife, Ethel, and daughter, Judi Levin, Deadline reported.
