If you don’t have Disney+, you’ll still have the chance to try Andor this Thanksgiving.
The Star Wars series, a spinoff of the standalone film Rogue One, will get a big cross-platform push over the holiday. The first two episodes of the series will premiere across all Disney’s distribution platforms, including ABC, FX, Freeform, and Hulu. Check out the schedule below.
- ABC: Wednesday, November 23
- FX: Thursday, November 24
- Freeform: Friday, November 25
- Hulu: November 23 – December 7
The ABC, FX, and Freeform airings of Andor will all run between 9pm and 10:30pm on the days outlined above. The episodes that will screen include “Kassa” and “That Would Be Me.”
Andor, set five years before the events of Rogue One, focuses on Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and his journey toward becoming a rebel hero. The series also stars Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, Fiona Shaw, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
The cross-platform debut will coincide with the season finale of Andor premiering on Disney+. The twelfth episode of season 1 will stream on the platform November 23.
Typically, streaming exclusive releases remain solely on their original platform. So, this particular premiere event marks an unusual approach. Disney clearly hopes to hook some extra subscribers with Andor.
