There's always been a great deal of interest in runtimes when it comes to movies, particularly if it's superhero or Star Wars-related. It goes without saying that fans want to spend as much time in these worlds as possible, so we're really not surprised that's now carried over to television.
This Wednesday, Disney+ will release the first three episodes of Andor. How much time will you need to devote to them? Well, we've just found our courtesy of a recent Reddit post (via SFFGazette.com), and it's looking like you can blast through them in a couple of hours!
Episode 1 will be 39 minutes, episode 2 will be 35 minutes, episode 3 will be 40 minutes, and episode four (which won't hit Disney+ until September 28) clocks in at 47 minutes. Bear in mind that these numbers include credits and recaps, but these are pretty decent runtimes for the Star Wars series.
Don't forget, Andor is set to run for 12 episodes, and while we'd usually prefer to see episodes closer to the one-hour mark, we can't complain too much when the story is being told over such a long period of time.
An action-packed new TV spot for the series has also been revealed:
Andor, a spy thriller from Lucasfilm filmed over two 12-episode seasons, takes place five years before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The era is filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.
The show presents Star Wars from a different perspective, focusing on everyday people whose lives are affected by the Empire. The decisions they make have real consequences, and the stakes for them - and the Galaxy - couldn’t be higher.
Diego Luna returns as Cassian Andor and is joined by cast members Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Fiona Shaw. The executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Tony Gilroy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna and Michelle Rejwan. Tony Gilroy is also the creator and showrunner.
Andor premieres on Disney+ with its first three episodes on September 21.
