New interviews with the cast and crew of the upcoming series Andor are teasing a more realistic Star Wars show than usual. The series will deal with the formation of the Rebel Alliance leading up to the Battle of Scarif and subsequently the Battle of Yavin, but ultimately, it will be a series about the people that formed the Rebellion.
In a recent interview with Screen Rant, Diego Luna was asked what Andor will explore that the rest of the Star Wars Disney Plus slate hasn’t. The actor responded:
“I wouldn’t say it that way. What I would say is that Andor is the most grounded Star Wars you’ll get. This is about the people. There’s no Jedi around, and it’s very dark times in the galaxy. It’s when the people have to come together, articulate a response, and work in communities because the Empire is growing and control is everywhere. People have been marginalized, and there’s no freedom. You have these communities having to react. It’s the most human that the experience of Star Wars can get. This Star Wars is about regular people like you and me, and I think that connection is going to be special. It’s the most realistic—if you can say realistic, because obviously, they live in a galaxy far, far away. But it should feel realistic to you, because we want that proximity. We want you to reflect [on] yourself with these characters on this journey.”…
