“He is a new kind of hero for a new age. His name is Andor.” This is where that ol’ phrase “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away” makes sense – a long time ago in 1975, a Star Wars series aired on television. Ha ha. A YouTube channel created this glorious fan-made TV intro for the Andor series replicating the 70s TV intro style. It’s kind of amazing! Set five years before the events of Rogue One, the series follows rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion. It’s showrun and created by writer Tony Gilroy. Diego Luna returns as Andor, with a cast featuring Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, as well as Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma; plus Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera. “It’s 1975. A New Hope won’t be released for another two years, and George Lucas is mostly known as the American Graffiti guy. You just finished watching the latest episode of Barney Miller.” “And now, we bring you tonight’s TV movie premiere. Get ready to travel to a far away galaxy that existed a long, long time ago. It’s the science fiction spectacular…ANDOR. Every Thursday night, only on ABC.” Ha.
