‘Andor’ Becomes the First ‘Star Wars’ TV Series for Grown Ups

The Disney+ streaming service will launch “Andor” on Wednesday 21 September. It is a prequel to the popular 2016 movieRogue One: A Star Wars Story.” The titular Cassian Andor, played by Diego Luna, is the primary character.

The 12-episode television series tries to address “What was it like for those who were prepared to give all up for a cause, you know? I doubt we’ve seen that before” Moon added “I don’t think we’ve been in the most intimate life of the people that were having to live under the control of the Empire. What was those dark times, you know? In terms of the every day life, now we’re going to realize that”.

“I think the key thing is that we try to make this all real,” said Tony Gilroy, writer of “Rogue One” and “Andor.”

“We want to make everything rea, real emotions, real stakes, real threats, real fear, real betrayal, real love, real desperation, real families, real domestic drama, real adventure,” he added.

The first four episodes of Andor present a story that is unlike any Star Wars series that has come before it. It opts to approach its protagonist from a distance, giving its story the chance to organically evolve as the world at large starts to come into focus. While series like The Mandalorian chose to go in guns blazing, Andor leans into the uneasiness of a slow-burning story thread that is unraveling at both ends.

The latest Star Wars: Andor trailer features a starfighter with a lightsaber while also reminding viewers of the character’s eventual demise in Rogue One.
