Espionage Based, Gritty Star Wars Series Rising Above The Status Quo

“Andor,” starring Diego Luna as our protagonist, Cassian Andor, is a groundbreaking Star Wars series from Disney+. The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi series set the bar high - But “Andor” just took that bar, and snapped it in half, throwing both prior series to the side. With just 3 episodes, “Andor” has not only proven it’s right to exist, but it’s right to thrive. The series is darker and grittier than your average Star Wars series. In the opening scene of Episode 1, our protagonist flirts with the owner of a bar, and is attacked by two corrupt law enforcement figures. He kills both of these law enforcement members, and gets away for some time. The series also shows a somewhat defenseless young woman getting shot by a man with a gun. Intense kissing is shown, as well as plenty of violence. “Andor” has beautiful cinematography, an amazing plot and storyline, and great writing. It is by far the best of all of the recent Star Wars series, topping even the ever popular Mandalorian serie. However, with this greatness come great maturity. The series I easily the most mature series out of all of the Star Wars series I have seen. “Andor” is an amazing addition to the Star Wars franchise!

Slow, loses the Star Wars feel

Way to slow, but aren't most live action shows? Some people say they like the realism, but in getting more "raw and real" scenes they lost the star wars feel...there's no magic to the settings, they feel like earth. The plot moves so slowly and there are few compelling complexities. Andor himself is pretty flat, his backstory adds little. And they give us some of the most boring legal scenes yet in the franchise. The adult-oriented scenes in the first few episodes are too long and have nothing to do with plot, but will probably go over most kids' heads. Watch Rogue One instead; Diego Luna has a way better performance there.

Storyline is great

I will say I am a big fan of Rogue One so perhaps there is a bias for me... I give this a 4.5. I love this story line and its characters as much if not more than most in the Star Wars world and was so excited to see this become a series. So far I am not disappointed and hope they stay true to what made Rogue so good.

Police Propaganda and Suicide Scene

The portrayal of the rebellion was awful and borderline police propaganda, however the enforcement of the new laws by the empire causing the authorities to make up charges in order to arrest people on the street was correctly reminiscent to today's society. The costumes were very gorgeous as expected of the StarWars franchise. Was very disturbed/alarmed to see the jail suicide in episode 8, once again I wish Disney+ put content warnings in the top corner or episode description to avoid such triggering material. Have only seen up to episode 9 so far.

The perfect star wars series!

The Star Wars we all want, this series hasn't dissapoint me once. Its full of surprises and its verry much entertaining. This series is most better than the Kenobi series or the Bobba Fett series. Now you can see a Star Wars series doesn't need lightsabers to be cool. Such a nice. I really didn't expect this series to surprise me so much with good content. I also think they made the story very well, you really go into the story, which was often lacking with the other series that were made. I also think that not too many things are done quickly and that is a good thing. For me it was a super cool experience and I hope there are many more episodes to follow!

too much language

Great show. Is it for kids? No. There is strong language, use of the Lord's name in vain, multiple swearwords spread throughout. Never reason for that in film.
