Andor | Teaser Trailer | Disney+

Could it be that this is actually kinda sorta … good?

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.

My thinking is twofold. On one hand I hate Disney’s recycling of old and dead characters – we all know how Cassian Andor’s story ends – on the other hand we have with Andor a real oldschool SW hero, bit rough around the edges man of action and rebellion. Does he remind us on a certain Solo, maybe?

The teaser was very much to my liking, the world dark and grey and well lived in. And no Vader or Jedi smurfs and death stars anywhere in sight. If they have managed to let Cassian be the lead character and don’t abandon him to the back seat (Fett, Kenobi) we might have a gritty good vs bad space western on our hands.

Only time will tell.
