Star Wars Andor

Of all Star Wars movies, including the main trilogies and spin-offs, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is actually our favourite of them all. The formula is the stuff that made war movies memorable, a rag tag group of soldiers, in this case rebels, on a mission of that they would probably not return from in order to save their cause from an evil empire. Even Star Wars creator George Lucas himself said that he enjoyed “Rogue One” as compared to "The Force Awakens".

From  a spinoff to another spinoff, Disney as it milks as much as it can from the Star Wars universe, will be releasing on Disney Plus streaming service “Andor” featuring Cassian Jeron Andor played by Diego Luna, the Rebel captain and intelligence officer who dies with Jyn Erso during their raid on Scarif to steal the Death Star’s schematics.
