Andor review: Rogue One prequel is slow-burn Star War

 but it still inspires plenty of passionate debate among fans about the place it holds in the beloved sci-fi saga.

A gritty, standalone war story set in the period just before the events of Star Wars:

 Episode IV – A New Hope, 2016’s Rogue One was always a risky bet,

Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story isn’t the most controversial Star Wars movie ever made,

but it was one that paid off as it became the third highest-grossing film in the entire franchise.

Now, the studio is doubling down on that bet with Andor,

a prequel-of-a-prequel that explores the formative years of Diego Luna’s rebel spy Cassian Andor from Rogue One.
