The Andor Teaser Trailer Has Star Wars Fans All Saying The Same Thing

The teaser trailer for another upcoming glimpse into a galaxy far, far away, "Andor," dropped on the first day of Disney's weekend-long Star Wars Celebration at the Anaheim Convention Center (via StarWarsCelebration.com). The series, which was announced in 2020, will see Diego Luna reprising the role of Cassian Andor from 2016's "Rogue One" (via The Hollywood Reporter). The show looks to be serving as something of an origin story for Andor and is set to take place a whole five years before the events of "Rogue One." During Star Wars Celebration's opening panel, Luna remarked, "You're not going to recognize Cassian Andor in the beginning" (via The Hollywood Reporter).

"Star Wars" fans have had a lot of news to chew on lately. The past few months have seen us teased with more and more details regarding "Obi-Wan Kenobi," which premieres on May 27 on Disney+. Of course, there's also a plethora of other "Star Wars" series coming to Disney+ in the years ahead. These include the upcoming third season of "The Mandalorian," "Ahsoka," "The Acolyte," and the recently announced "Skeleton Crew" (via Variety). With so much coming, and with "Star Wars" fans being a particularly hard-to-please lot, universal excitement is by no means a given. So, what are fans saying about the teaser?

On the whole, fans like what they're seeing

Judging from the comments on the trailer's YouTube video, fans seem to be quite excited by our first look into the world of "Andor." Special points of enthusiasm range from the show's apparent grittiness and more cinematic feel to its focus on the machinations of the rebellion and the Galactic Empire. "This trailer looks like it's for a movie," wrote The Lore Master, "also love that we finally get to see a glimpse of the Imperial Senate for the first time."

A common topic among commenters also focused on the potential for fleshing out the links between the prequels and the original trilogy. Because "Andor" will be set less than a decade before the Battle of Yavin in "A New Hope," the possibility for more ties linking both pieces of the franchise is prominent. GenefactoR wrote, "Looks like we are going to witness a lot of really cool things, one being the transition from clones to stormtroopers." Other comments, such as that from Russdeezy, made clear that fans are excited to see how the Rebel Alliance came to be.

There also appeared to be a good amount of relief that "Star Wars" fans are getting something truly new. The word "nostalgia" was mentioned more than a few times, normally disapprovingly compared to the moments when the universe innovates and provides us with something we have not seen before. "Honestly, this doesn't feel too much like a Star Wars movie, but instead a very interesting sci-fi action movie on its own that I'll be very interested in seeing," Coddy Vuu wrote. "And that's what [I] love when movies related to Star Wars [are] done right."

Of course, we'll all have to wait until August 31 to find out more. Importantly, the series has already been renewed for a second season.
