Andor: Disney’s best show in years (no spoilers)

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I have recently begun to think that Disney’s shows are now exclusively for my kids’ generation and beyond. I’ve grown tired of the Marvel recipe and even though I’ll still watch the Star Wars movies it’s mostly because it’s a fun family thing.

But I have to say that Andor – the season finale was released this week – is outstanding. Of course, it’s still Fantasyland stuff that perpetuates America’s fascination with fantasy. But it’s a show with an extraordinarily strong storyline with superb character development. All set in the familiar Star Wars worlds. The kids aren’t even watching it, but I enjoyed every episode.

The casting in Andor is excellent with some great actors including Diego Luna, who plays the titular role, Stellan Skarsgard, Andy Serkis, and Forrest Whitaker playing their trade, but all the lesser-known other actors are also brilliant. I bet a few actors will go on to bigger things after this.

The whole season is chock full of story and action, but the season finale is as climactic as you can get.

I give it 4½ out of 5 – highly recommend!
