Cassian Andor: the TV show

Uhmmm.... wow.  This was totally unexpected.  I like the character and the actor and if he's partnered with K2SO then the show will probably be pretty cool, especially if we get cameos from the various rebel alliance commanders and operatives.  Maybe they'll even improve the Carrie Fisher CGI double in time for the TV version of Rogue One :D

But seriously, this bodes well if it means Hasbro will release many of those cool Rebel characters as SA action figures. Hasbro's the one who's always saying that they produce the toys if there's enough media support...  now give me my SA Admiral Raddus!!!!

Wow is right. This came out of nowhere. Sounds pretty cool. Star Wars adventures in the OT era!

I love television as a medium, so I'm pretty excited to see live action star wars finally coming to TV, in not just one but two series.

I'm cautiously more hopeful about this than The Mandalorian. Very interesting & cool choice for a character to follow.

This. 100%. I'd buy both SA 3.75" and 6" versions of him. I also hope they show more MonCal on the TV show so that we can finally get MonCal officers, technicians, random crew. For such important members of the rebellion, the MonCal guys need more action figure representation. 

Only concern is that after the disasterous sequel trilogy Ackbar and FO officer 2-pack, Hasbro may mistakenly think the MonCal aren't good sellers to the collectors --- maybe if Ackbar actually looked like his classic RotJ outfit, it wouldn't have shelfwarmed so badly?

I'll speculate right now that Disney might finally use some of those finished scripts from the Underworld TV show for Cassian's adventures... maybe the first season could show him having to infiltrate Black Sun or some other Huttese organization to source weapons for the rebellion?

Season 2: Cassian tries to topple Crimson Dawn, forges a tense alliance with Qi'ra and they take on Darth Maul? People wouldn't even need to have seen SOLO to pick up on the storyline.

Star Wars and TV show together are exciting regardless, but this one could be cool. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with :r2d2line:

Guys I don't like this choice.  I just didn't like his character in R1 but I guess I'll hold judgement until I see it.
