Could the Andor series be as groundbreaking as the first Star Wars standalone?
I don’t like rating Star Wars movies. I can’t, no more than I can pick a favorite child. But recently, I will say that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, um — what do my kids say (?) — “lives rent-free in my brain.”
Mostly, that’s because of the upcoming Andor series on Disney+.
From the moment I saw the first trailer for Rogue One, I knew that the perspective it provided would be unique.
Jyn Erso, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Jyn Erso had me at that hello. And the movie itself set up so many stories. Books, comics, and series. However, the film also enhanced both Revenge of the Sith (What happened to Vader after he donned the suit?) as well as A New Hope (How exactly did they get the plans?).
But questions remained.
How did the Rebel Alliance put itself in a position to succeed (with the help of the Force)?
How did Mon Mothma negotiate the early days of the proto-Rebellion?
And, yes, how and (more importantly) why did Cassian Andor get so good at killing?
