Star Wars: Andor First Reactions Arrive Online

Published on September 17th, 2022 | Updated on September 17th, 2022 | By FanFest

With the premiere of Star Wars’ latest television series, fans are getting geared up to journey to a galaxy far, far away once again. In the prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, named Andor, three episodes will be released on Disney+ on September 21st. The social media embargo for the series was lifted Thursday night, allowing journalists who screened the program early to share their thoughts online. As you might expect from the previews, this new Star Wars tale is distinct from previous Disney+ offerings in terms of style and tone.

For the most part, people have had very positive reactions to Andor. Seedy underworlds and everyday citizens are given more focus in its new vision of Star Wars rather than iconic characters or cameos which is something many viewers seem to appreciate. After multiple episodes focused on popular themes, it’s clear that Andor intends to be different from anything else out there.

It’s clear that everyone is delighted by the new Star Wars on Disney+, yet there are many folks who adore it.

You may see some of the first reactions to Andor below!

Powerful Work

I’m in complete shock at how Andor is unapologetically political. For so long, we’ve had to constantly say “Star Wars has always been political” to people who would deny that fact. But this show is different–it’s angry at the those people denying it. It’s audacious, timely, raw, and exceedingly thoughtful all at once. This is powerful work indeed.”

Very Different

So far, I’ve only seen the first two episodes of ANDOR, but it’s very different from other STAR WARS movies and so much cooler.

I like this new POV on this galaxy.

Something to Say

#Andor is the first 3 episodes of Andor, and I’m certain it will be the show that re-establishes my interest in Star Wars. ANDOR offers new, distinctive characters as well as a compelling story for Andor. It also has substance to it!

Slow Burn

If you enjoyed Rogue One for all of the ways it wasn’t a conventional Star Wars movie, then #Andor will be right up your alley. It’s a character study with a slow burn. Diego Luna is fantastic, and after the first four episodes, I’m eager to see where it goes next.

Cinematic

The Andor social embargo has now been lifted, so I can freely admit that it is the most cinematic of all the Star Wars programs to date. The first three episodes should have been presented as one 90-minute episode. There are a lot of random breaks between them, but it’s still an excellent program!

Contained

Andor is what Star Wars has lacked thus far – a tiny taste of the franchise’s full narrative potential. It’s very self-contained and standalone. The series plays out as if it were a slow burn event. With so much intrigue at the big picture, it was all consuming. Minor complaint: there are times when the pacing is slightly off. Must-see viewing. Tweet with image).

Good Stuff

Intrigued

I just finished watching the first four episodes of #Andor, and I’m really looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here. The 12-episode format has me hooked, and I can’t wait to see more. Great performances and a slow build so far – this show is definitely worth staying tuned for!

Gritty & Mature

Andor is a story unlike any other in the Star Wars series. In a stunning and hazardous realm, Diegoluna is at the epicenter of a dramatic and deadly tale. It’s gritty, mature, and has some of the most intelligent and well-informed material we’ve ever seen. Tony Gilroy is incredible.

Unexpected Places

The Andor series is an important reminder that in any rebellion, everyone matters. We see people of all levels throughout this galactic conflict who are dealing with the messes on both ends of the bookends. Deep down, high above, and so many other places we wouldn’t expect to find them. This might be my new favorite #StarWars series!
