A blood-pumping spy thriller that might be the best Star Wars show yet: Andor review

Andor: key information

– Launches on Wednesday, September 21
– Three-episode premiere on Disney Plus

– Written by Rogue One’s Tony Gilroy
– First season comprises 12 episodes
– Second season set to begin filming soon

Star Wars live-action shows haven’t been the runaway successes Disney and Lucasfilm hoped they would be. Sure, The Mandalorian has been a critical and commercial success for the legendary sci-fi franchise. However, The Book of Boba Fett and even the highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi’s standalone series have largely struggled to match the popularity of their TV sibling.

So it falls to Andor, the next Star Wars Disney Plus series, to try to deliver a suitably gripping tale in that famous galaxy far, far away. Like the Star Wars prequel movie trilogy, though, Andor has the potential to tell a superfluous story. Thanks to Rogue One, fans are already aware of how Cassian Andor’s journey ends – a similar problem (among many) that affected the end of the Star Wars prequel movie saga.
