Prequel series to Star Wars' 'Rogue One'. In an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue, Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a Rebel hero.

Andor is a Star Wars saga series that is a prequel spinoff of Rouge One (2016) and is the fourth instalment in the series released by Disney+. This 12-episode series is directed alternately by Toby Haines, Benjamin Caron, and Susan White. This series stars a series of big names: Diego Luna, Stellan Skarsgard, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Genevieve O’Reilly, Andy Serkis, and Forest Whitaker. Andor is the best in plot and artistic intensity compared to the previous series.

This series is set 5 years before the events of Rogue One, which is also a prequel to Star Wars: A New Hope (1977). The protagonist of this series is Cassian Andor (Luna), an essential character in Rogue One. In short, this series tells the background of Andor, how he acted as a thief and a fugitive until he became a member of the Rebel Alliance against the Galactic Empire. The plot intersects in the series with important figures such as senator Mon Mothma, Saw Gerrera, and Luthen Rael. Andor also takes the story locations on various planets, such as Morlana One, Ferrix, Aldhani, Narkina 5, to the imperial capital, Coruscant.

Who would have thought the plot that started simple could develop so complex. Following the plot line with dozens of characters of various social statuses and ranks will be challenging, even if you are a Star Wars fan. The main trigger is Andor, while the others are just supporting characters who will later become essential to the Rebel Alliance’s actions. With all the events that happened to him, Andor is not easy for us to follow. Andor is caught in one adventure after another that he cannot escape. The main point is to describe the skills of the protagonist. He is a skilled and intelligent technician, mechanic, tactician, and pilot who can use his luck and skill to get from one problem to another.

Star Wars fans will enjoy another side of the story universe that has been presented before. The story is so grounded in the undercurrents of rebel groups and workers that the senator’s nerves up there. At the same time, the imperial side through their officers with eyes like eagles stalking and ready to prey. Political intrigue and spies on both sides are inevitable. Tension and crunch are never lost in the plot. The story, one after another, scrolls quickly, following one event with another without the slightest pause in a total of 12 episodes, as if all events have their climax.

Aside from the solid script and fabulous setting, the cast lineup is the best in the series (maybe even some of the movies). Dozens of figures on the rebel and imperial sides played excellent (read: perfect). Not a single figure looked as calm and relaxed as Han Solo; all their expressions were anxiety, tension, and fear in the shadow of the empire. Luna, Skarsgard, Arjona, Saw, Serkis, and O’Reilly played extraordinarily. Then on the imperial side, two officers played by Kyle Soller (Syril) and Denise Gough (Dedra) played brilliantly with cold, ruthless, and uncompromising expressions. These two players somehow steal the attention in every scene.

Andor is the best of the Star Wars series; the plot “complexity” and the richness of characters and locations keep the story so down to earth. No Jedi, no Mandalorian, no Sith, no hero and any pretentious figures appear in this series. This is what I love, and it’s the highest expectation in a Star Wars universe series that has been flawed since episode 7. One of my favourite segments is the modern maximum security “factory” prison in Narkina 5. Wow, this segment is unique and sticks through the setting and characters- its new character reflects the struggle of the oppressed workers. Andor said, “this part of the engine (which they assembled) must be one part of something important”. It turns out, OMG! He wasn’t wrong at all. The post-credit scene in the last episode of the series explains it all. What a series!
