Check out reviews of Andor, the new Star Wars series
“A month or two ago I watched the first four episodes of #andor and it’s amazing. Quality production design, vivid worlds, real settings and characters that look like real people. It’s the best of Disney Star Wars so far and much needed for the franchise!” – Rob Keyes

“Cassian #Andor is a very, very different type of protagonist from Star Wars. elusive. A crook. A liar. And that makes the show even better. Diego Luna and Stellan Skarsgård stand out whenever they are on screen together.” – Alisha Grauso
Cassian #Andor is a very, very different kind of Star Wars protagonist. Shifty. A con artist. To read. And it makes the show all the better. Diego Luna and Stellan Skarsgård just pop whenever they’re on screen together.

“I watched the first 4 episodes of #andor and I’m loving your simpler, down-to-earth approach. It’s different from the other shows, with less humor. Also, it plays more like a police drama than a space opera. I liked how it highlights the low-level Empire leaders as it reveals a rebel alliance slowly forming.” – Erik Davis
I’ve watched 4 episodes of #Andor & I’m loving its more simple ground-level approach. It’s different from the other shows, less humor. Plays like a crime drama more than a space opera.

“I saw the first 4 episodes of #andor and it’s a big win for me. I was very impressed with the story, full of characters with ambiguous morals. There are definitely a few moments of *Leo pointing at the TV*. All in all, it’s grounded, beautifully shot, and I can’t wait for more.” – Meredith Loftus

“#andor Looks like #Star Wars in the best ways, and it looks like something completely different from the best ways too. It’s rare that such a well-known franchise manages to bring something that feels fresh, but I think this show does.” – Lissete Lanuza
#Andor feels like #Star Wars in the best ways, and like something completely different in the best ways, too. It’s rare for such a well-known franchise to manage something that feels brand new, but I think this show pulls it off.
