How Does “Andor” Episode 8 Is Connected To Rogue One? Series Review

In Episode 8 of the prequel series Star Wars: Rebels, Cassian and Jyn are sent on a mission to retrieve an Imperial pilot. The episode is significant in many ways for these two characters, but the most significant and interesting is that it explores how much Cassian has changed from when he first met Jyn in Episode 1. In many ways, this episode shows how much they have grown as a character and person since they were first introduced.

What is the episode about?

This episode tells the story of how Cassian and Jyn met back in Episode 1 (shortly before the events of Episode 3: A Princess on Naboo). It shows how much each has changed since then and how much they have grown as a team. However, it also serves to set up next week’s episode for which it is the title. It is also about a year after Star Wars: Rebels was first introduced in Season 1, so viewers will get to see the evolution of this team from that time until the events of Rogue One.

What makes this series interesting to watch?

This series is a great watch for Star Wars fans and those who are interested in the characters (like me). The episodes are only 20 minutes long and it is easy to watch since each episode has 2 or 3 plots that link together. It shows us how the Rebels came together as a team, what their outlook on the Empire was, and how they viewed the Empire as a whole. It also shows us how they became a close-knit family.

Who should watch this series?

Fans of the original movies, The Clone Wars, or any other series based on the movies will enjoy this series a lot. I would also recommend this series to anyone who likes Star Wars, crime shows, or good stories that tell from the characters’ points of view. I do not recommend parents or those under 14 watch this because there is some minor language and some mild violence that is only implied in this episode.

What do critics say about this series?

Doug Walker of said, “Revisiting Rebels is a chance to appreciate just how far [Disney XD’s] ambitious freshman series has come in its first season, but also to point out where it still has a long way to go.” He also said, “Star Wars Rebels has plenty of positive qualities that make it easy to recommend as a must-see for fans of the property, and casual viewers looking for something different on Disney XD.”


Personal reviews and ratings of this series:

I give this series a rating of 8 out of 10. While the show is good and has great characters, I feel like it can be better. So my recommendation would be to watch it again. I recommend that you watch this series, but try to not get attached to the characters or the story. This is because I feel like the series is heading in a certain direction (which was hinted at in this episode) and we will have no choice but to accept it.
