In addition to learning that the Marvel Studios streaming series Ms. Marvel would hit Disney Plus next summer, investors on a conference call with Disney today learned that the 12-episode Star Wars series, Andor, would also stream in that same window.
Q4 for Disney stretches from July 1st through September 30th and with Disney Plus seemingly trying to avoid streaming live-action Marvel Studios series and live-action Star Wars series concurrently, we could hypothetically see Andor pairing up with something like the second season of Marvel Studios What If…?.

Andor will serve as a prequel to Rogue One and see Diego Luna return in the titular role. Adria Arjona and Stellan Skarsgard have joined the cast while Forest Whitaker, Genevieve O’Reilly and Ben Mendelsohn are among those reported to return.
