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.

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.
