‘Andor’ Is a Good Show But Its Lack of Aliens Is Criminal

I’ve been watching Andor for six weeks now and while the series has been one of the best-written and most enjoyable Star Wars projects I’ve seen in a long time it is bothering me for one reason and one reason only: its utter lack of aliens.

I have watched eight episodes and have counted only four aliens in the entire series so far! How can that even be possible in Star Wars?!

Since 1977 Star Wars has been a franchise of inspiring heroes, fierce heroines, lovable droids, and iconic aliens. There’s been Chewbacca, Yoda, Jar Jar Binks, Ahsoka Tano, Asajj Ventress, Zeb, Plo Koon, Kit Fisto, and so many other incredible alien characters throughout this franchise.

And then there’s this show and the lack of aliens is just strange. In fact, it’s jarring. Who thought it was a good idea to have a show set in this universe and yet it’s partly devoid of what makes this franchise so lovable?

I want to love this series, and I do, but the lack of love for alien characters in this franchise is starting to really bother me on a personal level. I hope the second season doesn’t repeat this same mistake.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

The Ten Coolest Aliens in ‘Star Wars’

Star Wars is known mainly for its fantastic human characters and its wildly imaginative worlds and stories but a part of the reason why Star Wars is such an amazing franchise is because of the various species throughout its vast topography. And there are a LOT of incredible aliens in Star Wars. So, here are the ten aliens I find are the coolest in this lovable franchise. Enjoy!

10. The Infamous Sarlacc

databank_sarlacc_01_169_c5356bf9Ever since I saw Return of the Jedi I have been strangely fascinated by the Sarlacc. The fact that it digests its unfortunate victims over an agonizing thousand years is not only horrifying but kind of interesting. First of all, it shows that this terrifying creature has evolved to survive in the brutal, arid world of Tatooine due to its only having to eat every thousand years. Secondly, I would just love to know what exactly happens to the things it eats. I bet it would be horrifically fascinating. Continue reading The Ten Coolest Aliens in ‘Star Wars’

Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Twenty-Two

Ora was on the bridge of the Tantative IV, pacing back and forth as she tried to wrap her head around her situation. Her rescuers, the golden protocol droid C-3PO, the massive Wookie Chewbacca, and astromechs R2-D2 and BB-8 watched silently as she roiled in her confusion. Eventually, Threepio broke the silence.

Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Eighteen

C-3PO was always on top of things. It was his job to do so. Since his creation all those years ago on the arid world of Tatooine, C-3PO was designed to help others. And now, he felt his help would matter more than ever.

Waiting for the right moment along with him aboard the ship that he had been stationed on for nearly two decades, the Tantative IV, was loyal rebel Chewbacca, faithful piloting companion, BB-8, and his best friend in the galaxy, R2-D2. Ben Solo had gathered them in a room before his departure and told them that, if anything happened to Ora, to take the Tantative IV and help her.
