We are talking about Legends TV shows vs. Current Canon TV shows in a matter of story hype, not necessarily content. But is it “your kind” Star Wars story? Based on this article: ‘Andor’ Is What Star Wars Was Meant to Be | WIRED
Key tenets to the article were:
Star Wars…feels like…a droid lost in the desert = the shows are hit and miss interesting after a ruckus moviegoing experience.
…A Star Wars enterprise has earned its audience’s investment in its characters rather than borrowing it from their bank of nostalgia for familiar names and faces = name drops without building character grittiness.
[Tony] Gilroy’s gift then, may be that he’s not a Star Wars fanboy…[has a steep] learning curve…[but]…freed to develop new kinds of Star Wars stories by not being doggedly devoted to the canon = the old adage of “fresh pair of new eyes” >>> long-time fans.
Andor went on location and built real ones. The show’s authenticity and realness starts there = the use of exposition and setting strengthened connection to each character and story.
