Yesterday, Disney Plus debuted the first three episodes of AndorI was a bit confused until I saw them, but they are essentially 90-minute movies, with the first two ending in strange places and the climax happening in the third.
There has been a lot of buzz about Andor shedding many of the issues that have plagued the Disney-era Star Wars. At the last minute, in the first few minutes he’s more down-to-earth with Cassian Andor running his guard his point his blanks, with sensible sets and effects and at least somewhat less CGI than the rest of the series. I feel attached. And it doesn’t seem interested in Easter eggs or crossovers to the Skywalker saga, other than an obvious connection to Rogue One, at least for now.
i like this approach. I love this cast, I love these sets, I love the look and feel of Andor. I can’t shake the feeling that I know how to get there.
The story, of course, revolves around Rogue One’s side character, Cassian Andor. He is instrumental in stealing the plans of the first Death Star and getting them to join the Alliance. increase. So we know very well how his particular story ends.
But past that, we don’t know exactly what we’re expected to learn through the 12 episodes of Season 1, or the already-seemingly-on-going second season. The story of “Birth of the Rebellion”, which will become, already looks pretty straightforward. The people are oppressed by the empire and eventually have enough, leading figures such as Andor, Mon Mothma and Saw Gerrera join forces to start a kind of guerrilla war against them.
You can call it Star Wars frequent does this and explores what he has trampled on before, but Andor seems to be more of a guilty example of this than others. The Obi Wan trilogy was also… not good, and I would argue that was a big reason. I would argue that Mandalorian makes more sense. please do not Given the timeline right after the first trilogy and many years before the new Disney trilogy that came so late, we know where these characters are going.
In theory, Rogue One should have gone awry because of this, but even if it was the story we thought we knew, essentially a movie where everyone died I’ve never seen anything so dark…involvement. But now, Cassian Andor exists as a movie spin-off. already plan and now he specifically We know his fate, along with many other characters, which takes the tension out of things. Don’t worry… Bix?
I appreciate this approach to Star Wars storytelling compared to what I’ve gotten recently, but I’m not sure why they chose this character of this period to tell this Here’s the story. It might be enough to overcome the obvious storyline that unfolds like Rogue One, but after these first episodes, I’m not so sure.
