More spectacular than “Obi-Wan Kenobi”?

The series will go even further since it focuses on the journeys of several of the protagonists of “Rogue One” and the way in which they had the idea of ​​organizing themselves in resistance against the Galactic Empire. . And this by following in particular the spy Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna), but also the rebel leader Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) or the guerrilla Saw Guerrera (Forest Whitaker). A remarkable cast to which Stellan Skarsgård, Fiona Shaw or Adria Arjona also contribute.

From the first images, it seems that the action is at the rendezvous of this new soap opera based in the world created by George Lucas, where we are promised in particular clashes between spaceships, infiltration missions and street fights between rebels and soldiers of the Empire.

But the creators promise nonetheless: “Andor” will not be an accumulation of special effects and digital overlays, ensuring that many visual effects have been achieved through filming tricks, the creation of props and the impressive scenery design. Surely a way to respond to the criticisms that marred the release of the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” serieswhose relative ambition has left many “Star Wars” fans unsatisfied.
