Andor has me dreaming about another Star Wars series I’d love to see

Andor is fantastic. But we've covered that much already, numerous times. I've also made it no secret that among so many great story threads, my absolute favorite in the first season of the show was the one focused on Mon Mothma. Those scenes amount to a political thriller, a drama series not seen before in [...]

For the first time ever in live-action Star Wars, we got a glimpse of the Imperial Senate in session near the end of the sixth episode of Andor. It's a brief look, as we see Senator Mon Mothma in the middle of an impassioned speech against the Empire blocking Ghorman trade routes, but we see [...]

Who is Mon Mothma?

Who is Mon Mothma?

Mon Mothma is finally getting her chance to shine. First introduced as the elegant rebel leader in Return of the Jedi, Mothma has become a major figure in the Star Wars franchise, appearing in books, shows, and films, but her on-screen appearances have been very brief compared to her in-universe impact. But in Andor, Mothma [...]

Why the situation Mon Mothma briefly mentions about Ghorman in Andor is such a big deal

In Andor episode 4, "Aldhani," we see the return of Mon Mothma to live-action Star Wars. She steals each scene she's in, which includes a tense conversation with her husband, Perrin.

She first appeared in one brief scene in Return of the Jedi, and then cameoed in Revenge of the Sith (her bigger scenes wound up cut). She appeared in a more notable role in [...]

War of the Bounty Hunters: Star Wars #15 gives us a fun and interesting story about Luke Skywalker

The War of the Bounty Hunters continues! I've been reading along each week, but I'm a bit behind on my reviews of each issue, so I'm catching up. Star Wars #15, written by Charles Soule, is one of the most marginally connected issues to this whole crossover event it seems, but it nonetheless was one [...]
