The gritty feel of ‘Andor’ is reminding ‘Star Wars’ fans of a tragic scene from ‘The Mandalorian’

If you’re somehow completely in the dark about any Star Wars nuances prior to earlier this week, you may be forgiven for not recognizing Andor as part of the franchise; with the entire galaxy keeping their heads down as the Empire wreak their dystopian havoc, it’s a very different, distinctly despairing tone for a series known for its iconic fanfare and unbridled heroism.

Set five years before the events of Rogue One, in which the Death Star plans are first stolen by the Rebel Alliance, Andor follows the lives and tribulations of those living under the iron fist of the Empire. Among such people is Cassian Andor, a thief who gets recruited for the budding Rebel Alliance. Indeed, Andor gives way to a much darker, political thriller vibe that firmly sends the franchise in an exciting new direction.
