The Andor TV Show Looks Really Great

I know the Star Wars TV shows haven’t been the be all end all that we’ve been hoping for. The Mandalorian has been great, obviously, but The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi were fine to meh. So it’s a real mixed bag. But the next show, Andor, looks freakin’ cool. We got a new, fuller trailer yesterday.

This looks gritty, this looks serious; this looks like a real, powerful take on the “Wars” part of Star Wars. This looks like a war show, only set in the Star Wars Universe. Is that a great use of the Cassian Andor character? Hells yeah! Is this going to turn out to be a lukewarm, fan servicey thing instead? Possibly! But based on the two trailers we’ve had, my hopes are pretty darn high for Andor.

Andor comes to Disney+ on Sept. 21.

6 Thoughts on Obi-Wan Kenobi (Review)

I wasn’t as super-hyped about the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show as other Star Wars fans seemed to be. I was just never a big Obi-Wan fan in general. But I still love Star Wars and I’m going to watch whatever shows they put out. More power to them. Now that Obi-Wan has come and gone, I felt it was all just generally fine. Nothing particularly special, as far as I’m concerned.

TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good

In the end, I feel like Obi-Wan Kenobi was just a simple, straight forward adventure that this hermit Jedi gets to go on. It doesn’t really alter anything we know about the character or the era of the Star Wars timeline. I actually think it adds some unneeded complications that will need smoothing over in all our minds. But I was never bored, and there were definitely some cool moments. It’s definitely not a bad show. I just don’t think it was anything special.

Join me after the jump for my review and all my thoughts on the first(?) season of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Andor is Actually Surprising Star Wars Material

We’ve known for a very long time now that Star Wars: Rogue One character Cassian Andor would be getting his own spin-off TV show. And since he dies at the end of that movie, it’s a prequel. Nobody is very sure what Andor is going to be about, but the first trailer arrived yesterday as part of Star Wars: Celebration. And it looks cool and funky!

I love the look of this trailer. It’s a bit wild, a bit gnarly, and looks like some solid action and intrigue around the early days of the rebellion. I’m all for that kind of exploration. And hopefully Andor himself turns out to be a cool character on his own. We can hope, right? There’s no reason he can’t be cool as hell in his own show!

Andor comes to Disney+ on Aug. 31.

Obi-Wan is Looking Pretty Fly

I totally blew it for May the Fourth! It fell on a Wednesday, too, and I wasted my List of Six on some LEGO toys. Alas. Hopefully I can make up for that mistake by just posting this Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show trailer on May the Fifth. Does that still count? Probably not.

The trailer looks great! Lots of action, lots of tense moments, the promise of confrontation between Obi-Wan and Owen Lars. And the promise of some kind of confrontation between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader. Will it be as awesome as we all hope? I guess we’ll find out when Obi-Wan Kenobi arrives on Disney+ on May 27.

A date where I will be heading out of town for a week-long trip. So I’m gonna miss out for several days.

All the Boba Fetts, Animated

Our old pal Tell It Animated is back with a fun look at all the cool Boba Fett armors. I’m a big Boba Fett fan, because he’s cool as hell, and that’s largely because his look is so damn good. So this is right up my alley. Even if The Book of Boba Fett wasn’t so great.

As always, this was just plain fun. I hope this dude is super successful making these animations. They’re always a treat when they come along, and I’m happy to share them. Especially since they tend to pop up over the weekend and they make for good Monday morning happiness.

And, as always, should he ever read these posts, I recommend Robin for a future episode!
