‘Andor’ Is The Han Solo Spin-Off We Wished

Rate this post

It’s been simply three months since Obi-Wan Kenobi ended with the titular Jedi saving the lives of each Luke and Leia (earlier than, presumably, force-feeding them some sort of magic Jedi memory-wiping potion offscreen) and now one more Star Wars present is right here. Andor is, after all, all concerning the early adventures of Rogue One’s Cassian Andor (however sadly not his sassy robotic sidekick). And judging from the primary episode, it appears as if Andor could also be giving us the Han Solo spin-off we at all times wished …

Quite a bit about Andor feels much like the setup of the flawed however unfairly maligned Solo; a younger, scrappy, morally-flexible dude is caught residing on an industrial planet. Andor additionally appears to be pulling from among the outdated Han Solo Expanded Universe books. As an illustration, the brand new sequence opens with Cassian visiting a brothel, a factor that has by no means truly been seen in a Star Wars story (even within the unnecessarily attractive Vacation Particular) besides for within the seedy underworld of the Han Solo guide The Paradise Snare – which, by the way, can also be a few planet of individuals enslaved by aliens with powers of sexual gratification.

Bantam Spectra

Much more consequentially, the villains of Andor aren’t Palpatine and Vader, or Bossk and Baron Papanoida, however relatively a bunch of douchey enterprise goons from the “Company Zone.”
