Looks good though.

Andor? Who? Had to google it, it's some guy from that spinoff film.


I agree with the inhumane treatment of animals.

The good obnoxious robot (from Rogue 1) voiced by Alan Tudyk, or the bad obnoxious one from Solo (voiced by fleabag).
Obviously probably the Tudyk one would be back. Just wanted to clarify because the other one was not fun at all really.

Andor is one of my favorite characters in all of star wars. He's a rebel who's done terrible things. He murders someone in the beginning of Rogue One. Awesome.

*Han Shot first btw* I am def one of those guys.

I am not really crazy about series that go back and fill in the gaps. I would just prefer they find a way to keep the story moving foward.

Except of course, with the new star wars. The fact that none of these mini series even come close to the events of or after the newer sequels goes to show how badly Disney did in anticipating what fans wanted. Rey, Poe, Snook whatever are all garbage, and the characters that made star wars what it is were treated as stage props to move along other people's stories. They really blew it. Especially what they did with Luke.

I don't have Disney plus so kinda missing out on a lot of this, but at the same time I am not the star wars fan I used to be. There have been more star wars movies I didn't like than liked at this point.

That's the sad truth about espionage stories; having to murder a friend. If he'd tried to help Jim Keats [or whatever his name was] then it would have slowed him down.

I remember a story about the premiere of Guns of Navarone one of my high school teachers told me when he saw when he was in his youth.
During the part when Gregory Peck [disguised as a German] shoots two German sentries in the back, a man stood up in the cinema and shouted 'That's cold-blooded murder'
If Peck had alerted them by making some dumb, smart-assy quip then they'd have emptied their MP-40's into him and the mission would be a bust.

It was a different time back then.
Action movies were about the World Wars, or Cowboy adventures.

There is an image of an actress in that clip that makes me wonder if they've found a new person to play Princess Leia?

Whats Disney's obsession with Saw Guererra? WHY do they keep shoe-horning him and Ashoka into everything?

The trailer looks amazing.  But the Obi Wan trailer looked amazing as well and that turned out to be a train wreck.

This looks really good. I liked Obi Wan as well, but I think this will benefit from having more room to take place--Obi Wan had to weave its way into a lot of existing story.

Saw and Ahsoka are very popular characters, so I'm not surprised that Disney is getting them some screen time.

^ I've been selling nerdy stuff for years and people wanting odd Star Wars characters is nothing new. I once met a kid who's favorite character was the Banking clan alien.
