The fourth Star Wars series to debut on the platform, Andor, was originally planned August 31 release, which was supposed to take place two weeks after the debut of “She-Hulk” on August 17th. This would make August 2022 the first month that the Marvel and Star Wars series were released on Disney+.

Alas, Disney+ wanted to set a different milestone and compete with its competitors with a longer premiere instead of the typical one movie a week release strategy.
