Andor Early Reactions Largely Praise A Star Wars Show Unlike Any Other

The first social media reactions to Andor have been released. As Lucasfilm’s fourth Disney+ series, the project will see Diego Luna return to the Star Wars franchise as he reprises his Rogue One role as freedom fighter Cassian Andor. The project has assembled a stellar cast joining its lead star, including Stellan Skarsgård as Luthen Rael, Adria Arjona as Bix Caleen, and Fiona Shaw as Maarva. Meanwhile, Genevieve O’Reilly returns as Mon Mothma, and Forest Whitaker reprises his role as Saw Gerrera.

Functioning as a Rogue One prequel, Andor season 1 is set five years before the events of Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars movie and takes place over the course of a year. Meanwhile, Andor’s already confirmed sophomore season will directly lead to the events of Rogue One. Based on the marketing footage for the show thus far, it adopts a boots-on-the-ground approach, with hints of being a spy thriller as Luna’s Andor infiltrates the Galactic Empire.

Less than a week before Andor premieres on Disney+, the first social media reactions to the show have been revealed, giving fans an idea about what to expect from the latest Star Wars show. Check out some of those reactions below:
