Andor starts with a slow burn and gradually elevates its way into one of the best Star Wars series yet, brilliantly tackling issues like fascism, greed, and revolution. It also feels like one of the most relatable Star Wars stories to date. Film buff Thomas Flight explores how Andor’s visual approach makes its locations feel so real.
(Spoilers) Since Andor takes place a few years before 1977’s Star Wars: Episode IV, it only stands to reason that the TV series should have come out in the mid-1970s. Auralnauts created this retro-style TV intro based on the Disney+ show about the reluctant hero who would rise to become a hero of the Rebellion.
This new Star Wars series follows the origin story of Rogue One character Cassian Andor – from his humble beginnings as a petty thief to his vital role in the rebellion against the evil and self-important fascist Empire. The first three episodes premiere on Disney+ on 9.21.22.
Now that Disney+ has reeled us in with The Mandalorian, they’ve started work on their next Star Wars series. This promo for the upcoming Rogue One prequel brings back Diego Luna’s character Cassian Andor and provides a small glimpse of the work going on behind-the-scenes. The initial 12-episode run hits sometime in 2022.
