The latest Star Wars series Andor takes the audience deep into the story of the titular character and tries to show us how Andor became the jaded and ethically ambiguous character we met in the Star Wars film Rogue One. The Disney+ series follows Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), living off the grid on his own lonesome taking extreme actions to survive in a society controlled by the Empire. Andor might not appeal to all of the Star Wars fanbases as it is a more gritty and ambiguous take on the characters of a franchise that is famous for its boldness in every scene. You can find Andor on Disney+ and if you like the series here are some more shows you could watch to fill up your time.
