In Praise Of Mon Mothma's Final And Subtle Transformation Into A Full-Time Rebel In Andor

2 days ago   |   By Slash Film

This post contains spoilers for the "Andor" season 1 finale. "Andor" has been a true breath of fresh air to the "Star Wars" franchise, in terms of tone, storytelling, visuals, and themes. One of the show's biggest contributions is its take on the Rebel Alliance. Before, the Rebels were mostly one-note, a group of chivalrous knights fighting an evil empire with pure goodness. Sure, they were cool, but there was rather little in terms of personal stakes for the non-Skywalkers or Solos in the Rebellion. Now, "Andor" is giving the Rebel Alliance more nuance, with layered inner conflict for...

The Andor Season 1 Finale Features The Finest Use Of Diegetic Music In Star Wars History

The Andor Season 1 Finale Features The Finest Use Of Diegetic Music In Star Wars History

2 days ago   |   By Slash Film

This post contains spoilers for the "Andor" season 1 finale. George Lucas has famously said in the past that sound is 50 percent of the moviegoing experience. When you have John Williams as a composer, that number might even need to go up. Arguably, the main title theme in "Star Wars" is the most impactful piece of music in cinema history, and expressing that opinion really doesn't feel too hyperbolic. Throughout the entire canon of "Star Wars," the symphonic themes and orchestral bursts are sonic cues that let the audience know when to feel something, when to react, and when to cheer. The...

Beware of spoilers for the season finale of "Andor" below. Over the past two months, "Andor" has reaffirmed time and time again the promise of George Lucas' galaxy far, far away. Whatever you may think of the individual films, shows, games or books that have been released over the years, you can't deny that Lucas created an expansive world full of possibilities where all kinds of stories could be told. Whether it was the original Expanded Universe or the new spin-offs, "Star Wars" has always been bigger than just any one story. Tony Gilroy, both in his reshoots of "Rogue One" and in the...

Andor Season 1 Has Some Of The All Time Greatest Monologues In The Star Wars Franchise

2 days ago   |   By Slash Film

This post contains spoilers for the "Andor" season 1 finale. "Star Wars" has never exactly been lauded for its dialogue. As the legend goes, Harrison Ford supposedly told George Lucas , "You can type this s***, but you sure can't say it" while making the original "Star Wars" trilogy. Indeed, the more infamous lines from Lucas' prequel films have taken on a life of their own thanks to the internet. All one needs to do is type the words "I don't like sand ..." and you can already start to hear someone giggling somewhere in the virtual abyss. Mind you, stilted dialogue isn't so much a defect...

Andor Season 1 Ending Explained: The Rebellion Rises

2 days ago   |   By Slash Film

It was all leading to this. Throughout season 1 of "Andor," creator Tony Gilroy and his team of writers and directors have intricately weaved a tale of rebellion and revolution right alongside an origin story for Diego Luna's Cassian Andor - one that few fans ever thought would feel necessary, despite being introduced as one of the most fascinating characters in 2016's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story." But rather than deliver yet another formless lump of "content" that hit all the familiar narrative beats without ever giving us anything new, this prequel series took the radical approach of...

Andor Season 1 Finale Credit Scene Explained: A Big, Direct Star Wars Connection

2 days ago   |   By Slash Film

The time has come for us to say goodbye to "Andor," at least for now. Indeed, after 12 blisteringly gritty episodes of "Star Wars" television, the first season is in the books and a great many of us are already impatiently counting the days until season 2 arrives. In the meantime, that season 1 finale left us with much to discuss, helping to set the table for what's to come when the show returns. Specifically, we need to talk about that post-credits scene and what that means for you, dear viewer, in the future. And yes, there is a little post-credits scene, so those who may have missed it...
