“This is what revolution looks like”
How long can anyone of good conscience stay uncomplaining and complaint under the jackboot of brutal fascism?
It’s hard to say but eventually enough will be enough and those brave enough and strong enough will take a stand, in small ways and big, to begin to white-ant and hopefully bring down the evil regime they oppose.
One of these people is Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) who begins his journey in the upcoming Star Wars series Andor to becoming the man who will begin the downfall of the Empire in Rogue One, one of the finest and most well-wrought entries in the Star Wars canon.
The trailer gives off some suitably epic, everything-on-the-lines vibes which match the material perfectly, with landscapes and cinematography that really bring home the fact that something really BIG is happening under the Empire’s rule.
Andor premieres its first three episodes on Disney+ on 21 September.
