AndorThe first three episodes of dropped on Wednesday and most Star Wars The fans were impressed and delighted. While Obi Wan Kenobi was criticized for excessive use of virtual sets and somewhat lopsided narration, Andor it makes heavy use of giant real sets, great location shots, and has some of the best writing we’ve seen in the franchise in years.
But you can’t please everyone. On r/StarWars, some fans are complaining that Disney is introducing too many new planets. This seems like an odd criticism, as one of the big complaints about previous Disney Plus shows is that we’re seeing the same places over and over again.
For example, large expanses of The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba FettY Obi Wan Kenobi they were all positioned under the twin suns of Tatooine.

Also, today’s shiny new planet may well become the next Tatooine, so it’s only fair that the vast majority of Star Wars fans are optimistic about being introduced to a whole new world.
Andor airs Wednesdays on Disney Plus.
