The first three episodes of Andor arrived on Disney+ today and I can’t wait to watch! The trailers have looked very promising and I have high hopes, more so than most other Star Wars TV shows. I always found it strange that Cassian Andor should get his own TV show, but here we are and we can only hope for the best.
I’m loving The Mandalorian as much as everybody else, and I can’t wait to watch Ahsoka. But The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi were both pretty mediocre. Will Andor be better? I love the tone we got in the trailers, of an actual hardcore, gritty war drama. Will the show live up to that tone? I surely hope so.
Join me after the jump for what I hope to get in the Andor TV show! And feel free to share your hopes, dreams and reviews of the first three episodes in the comments!Read the rest of this entry
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.
