Don’t know if this series will be as good as it looks, but I’ll be checking it out. Any Star Wars story NOT involving the original characters has my attention. Having said that, Obi-Wan Kenobi is getting good reviews, too.

The “Andor” series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.

Diego Luna returns as Cassian Andor and is joined by cast members Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough and Kyle Soller. The executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna and Michelle Rejwan. Tony Gilroy is the creator and showrunner.

  1. Awesome.

    I wondered what determined Disney-StarWarsCorp’s shift from big tent motion pictures to releasing a prestige TV series every six months (Mandalorian, Mandalorian Dos, Boba Fett/Mandalorian, Obi-Wan, Andor, Ahsoka, etc). I thought it was probably soulless accountants – which possibly it is! – but turns out there’s some subtlety and nuance to the whole affair.

    In The Rebellion Will Be Televised, a fantastic article with photos by Annie Leibovitz, I learned:

    1) the curved gargantuan LED wall called The Volume generates a photorealistic environment so you never have to shoot on location. A series can be filmed over a few months

    2) they’re requiring four and five year commitments from their directors, to get better into the storytelling

    3) Favreau, who was brought in to work with Dave Filoni (the guy behind some of the animated stuff like Clone Wars) was the one who insisted upon Baby Yoda. Filoni resisted but ultimately gave in.
