Cassian is arguably one of the most important new characters in the Star Wars universe, and his role in The Rebellion laid the foundation for the eventual success of Luke and Leia.

What are people saying about the show?

The reviews for the show are incredibly promising, despite the general consensus about its slow pace.

Mashable entertainment reporter Belen Edwards writes that while the show’s early episodes may be sluggish, “Andor is unmistakably a Star Wars story. It places a special emphasis on the politics of the galaxy and the importance of rebellion in the face of growing evil. And yes, Andor has its fair share of new planets, blaster shootouts, and spaceships to scratch those special Star Wars itches.”

Meanwhile, Star Wars expert and Mashable reporter interviewed Chris Taylor Andor‘s leading man Diego Luna, who offered up some sweet pearls of wisdom on the new show.

“It should be different. I mean, it has to deliver that action-adventure that you’ve always come to expect from Star Wars. But at the same time it can be darker. It may be more of a spy thriller. It can be very political, very character driven and dark. We can afford to go there, you know?”

When you’re ready to buckle up in your spaceship and embark on a new galactic adventure, you can subscribe to Disney+ for $7.99 a month or $79.99 a year and enjoy all the Star Wars fun.
