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.
