Fans were wondering how the Andor series would be received. Now we know based off the Andor Rotten Tomatoes score.

Luna returns to the Star Wars Universe in this gritty, spy thriller as Cassian Andor. Earlier this year, Comicbook.com was able to catch up with Luna during Star Wars Celebration. The actor revealed after watching Andor, you won’t believe that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was possible.
“The only thing I can say is you’re going to see where he was five years before Rogue One, and you’re not going to believe Rogue One was possible,” Luna told Comicbook.com. “That’s the idea, to see a transformation and an awakening. I can’t tell you how that will be represented, you’ll have to wait until the 31st of August. But it is about that, and it’s about how much we’re all capable of changing and transforming, and that’s the beauty of storytelling. Not many times you start knowing the end, here you know what happens. It’s not about, like, ‘Oh this happened!’ No, no, it’s how it happened that matters. It’s about the little details and what’s in between lines and every layer of the character. Even though we are on a very epic kind of show and a huge spy adventure show, we’re going to have time for intimacy. You’re going to go deep into the character and the people around him. It’s going to be interesting, I think, and it’s going to be dark and fun and different from what you see out there now.”
Star Wars Andor is now streaming its first 3 episodes on Disney+.
