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!

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.
