Star Wars: Andor Arrives At Disney+
A new saga within the Star Wars Universe just arrived on the streaming platform. The Star Wars: Andor arrives at Disney+. This series is a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) and already has its first three episodes on the streaming platform, available to the public.
The Star Wars universe series has been attracting the attention of critics and the general public for some time. This interest is due to the success of The Mandalorian (2019). Also, Lucasfilm organized several events to promote it. These actions included a press screening where all acclaimed it.
Initially, only one episode was supposed to be released. However, Disney placed three episodes simultaneously, probably to compensate for the delay. Readers should note that this production was supposed to premiere last month but could not be aired due to unavoidable delays.
LucasFilm may seek to erase what happened with the Obi-Wan Kenobi series with this new series. Its results were not bad, but considering the expectations, this filming lacked a lot.
Star Wars: Andor Arrives At Disney +
One of the series coming to this streaming platform is Andor, from the Star Wars Universe. Today the three episodes were published so that the public can enjoy them. With this series, Disney seeks to erase the disappointment that was Obi-Wan Kenobi, which did not have the expected results.
With this, they will seek to provide fans with a quality product that will put this franchise back at the top. Lucasfilm has quality sagas such as The Mandalorian, which, as explained in previous interviews, will be around for a while.
Disney’s problem is that it is the only one making the grade so far. We find strong criticisms if we place the last series launched in this Universe, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Some describe it as slow, bland, pointless, boring, and wasted.

Among the comments of some users and critics of Sensacine, we find: “Chapters extremely boring, bland and please, it takes so long to catch a girl, with two chapters just taught me that the season will be a loss, I’m very sorry for the return of Ewan and Hayden, they deserved more.”
Another review on this platform says, “Surprised by how boring and slow it is presented. With the Madalorian surprise, I was expecting something much more worked out and impressive, what with all the Obi Wan and Darth Vader backstory. However, halfway through the series it seems clear that it follows the logical line of a script that exposes the depression he had and the decline of one of the greatest Jedi after the extermination.”
With this new series, Andor, Disney is looking to erase the tracks of this production, which, as seen, had lousy reviews.
