Star Wars Cassian Andor series

Recommended Posts

Ugh. He was the nastiest character in a film filled with unlikeable characters.

Thats another Star Wars thing I’ll never be watching. :(

A few people in Disney weren't happy that they picked this character for a TV show. They wanted the Ewoks to take a lead role. It's part of that documentary, Ewoks: The Battle For Andor.

The money they would have spent on new movies is now being invested shows for Disney+. I have no interest in this series especially when you know what happens to him.

That's the best Star Wars film.

Now that milking the movie franchise started to backfire way sooner than they would have liked, they're now going to invest in milking the franchise through tv shows instead.

I liked Rogue One but I never really bought his character. I'd be willing to give him a chance to improve though, it's a very interesting period in the SW timeline and it might work out will with the increased breathing space a TV series offers.

Yeah, I really like it but have spoken here before about not buying the switch from the Andor at the start who will kill a fellow Rebel for the sake of the mission to the guy who refuses to fire on Galen. I get what they were aiming for, I just don’t think the film established his conflict well enough. 

 

A show how that can develop him more and inform his choices in the later film would be great. (It won’t be great.)

I felt his conflict totally comes from his growing relationship with Jyn.. and likely the events on Jehda just prior. I can't remember dialog specifically but that seemed pretty clear to me when last watching the film.

Pretty sure you and I covered it previously in the actual Rogue One thread :lol:

Won't rehash it here but it just didn't work for me.

Maybe yeah, I don't remember it at all... and I've certainly watched the film a few times since discussing it here, and I never had a problem with Cassian's motives at all, but YMMV as with anything.

..but yes, anyways. This is an interesting and quite left-field choice for a TV from Lucasfilm, I'll certainly be giving it a watch when it's ready in like 2 or 3 years.

I'll happily pay for a month to binge watch (as long as there's not a year's minimum contract or something), but yeah, otherwise I'm not interested in the service.

I don’t think I will even torrent this series, let alone pay for it.

 

why don’t they make a TV show on what went wrong at Luke’s Jedi academy to bridge all the holes in the new trilogy’s logic? De-age Hamill and show us why he turned into such a prick  - he ain’t that expensive, or going to be with us forvever.  Instead the whole thing is turning into sub-Star Trek. 

 

George Lucas would turn in his grave*. 

 

*if he was dead
