The Trailer For The Star Wars Show, "Andor," Is Here

Disney has just released a sneak peek for Andor, the upcoming Star Wars series focusing on the origins of Rogue One's Cassian Andor.

You can tell this show is going to be different from the moment the trailer began, which shows a man going to work and striking a bell (possibly a warning).

It very much displays how, like Rogue One, this series will follow the lives of the regular people living under the rule of the Galactic Empire, stepping away from the Jedi, the Sith, and the Skywalkers in between.

The trailer also gets pretty political with Andor expressing his anger over the Imperials looking down on those they oppress. It very much speaks to how when you take away the Jedi and the Sith, this intergalactic war is a battle between social classes.

At first, it seemed strange for Disney to make a series centering on Cassian Andor, a character who isn't as popular as Ahsoka Tano, Boba Fett, or Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, it looks like the studio made it work, as the trailer tells us that this will be a thrilling show depicting the rise and struggles during the early days of the Rebellion.

As usual, Star Wars is nailing it in the visuals department, as this series looks utterly breathtaking! Hats off to the cinematographers.
