ANDOR - Gritty, Grown-up Star Wars Skywalking Through Neverland: A Star Wars / Disney / Marvel Fan Podcast

    • Kids & Family

Are you ready for ANDOR?? This 4th live-action Star Wars series airs the first three episodes on September 21, 2022, and we've been waiting almost two months to share our review with you!! We hope to answer a very important question - whether to cuss or not in the Star Wars universe.
 
This episode is broken up into two sections - the first is a spoiler-free section that contains an overview of the series, plus the various characters and places to know before you watch. This section also contains part of a Roundtable interview with Adria Arjona, who plays Bix Caleen. She shares some great insight into her character and the town of Ferrix. At 40:43, we get into the spoiler discussion which contains major plot points for the first three episodes. So make sure to listen only after you've watched all three.
 
ANDOR Synopsis   
Created by Academy Award and BAFTA-nominated writer/director/producer Tony Gilroy, ANDOR takes place around five years before ROGUE ONE. This series answers the question: How does Cassian become a Rebel hero? ANDOR follows both the Rebel cells and Imperial Security officers to show what the galaxy and people were like between REVENGE OF THE SITH and A NEW HOPE. It's an era filled with danger, deception, and intrigue.
 
Kathleen Kennedy, Tony Gilroy, Sanne Wohlenberg (“Chernobyl”), Diego Luna and Michelle Rejwan are the executive producers of the series.
 
 
Character Round-Up  
Cassian Andor (Diego Luna)  
 
A refugee from the planet Kenari, he has made his home on Ferrix for several years. Ferrix is a small blue-collar planet with a really strong community. It is not part of the Empire. Cassian owes money to everybody, he has a string of ex-girlfriends, and his mom is on his case all the time because he has not lived up to his potential.

Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgard)  
 
He is part of a Rebel Cell with Mon Mothma, and both disguise themselves as someone else to get by in heavily Imperial places like Coruscant. According to Tony Gilroy, Luthen "is the master puppeteer of our show. He is the character that links many characters, and he comes at the revolution with an incredible intensity."

She is an Imperial senator, working her way into becoming the Rebel leader we know from RETURN OF THE JEDI and other series and films. This series allows us to explore what she is like in her day-to-day life. Her home on Coruscant, how she is a very public figure with a very private secret of supporting the Rebellion.
