This week has seen a ton of photos and one other set video for Andor. However today we share a new Andor set video which was uploaded to YouTube yesterday. The video shows the same Cleveleys set we have been seeing all week, and it’s not terribly exciting. This looks like pick up shots for the action scene we saw being filmed earlier in the week. In the video we can see citizens jumping over the railings on to the beach area as if they are fleeing something. There is also just a lot of actors walking from wardrobe to set and back again.
Considering all the troopers, dead bodies being dragged by droids etc we have already seen, I’ll assume the beach jumping citizens are fleeing an Imperial clamp down of some kind. Check it out.
There are some fans who thought on of the actors walking to set was playing Palpatine and that the Emperor shows up here. Yes the actor kinda looks a bit like young Palp’s but seen as we know this timeline, and that’s not McDiarmid, they are wrong. Later in the video you can see the costume looks nothing like the Emperor, the black cloaks they wear are to disguise them as they head into the filming location from make up.
Saying that, I think I would particularly enjoy seeing some thing from McDiarmid again as this version of the Emperor. A hologram message to the people of the Galaxy, something like that. It would be pretty cool.
Ultimately though, there is not much to see in this latest video compared to the last one. As said, I think this is just pick up shots for that earlier scene that was filmed. One of readers asked in a previous article is anyone excited for this show. Honestly, I am. However I am excited for the potential this show could have rather than what I expect from it. I really don’t know what to expect from Andor, and at the end of the day it’s live-action Star Wars. I’ll be there day one, and if I like it, great, if I don’t I’ll criticize it. That’s all we can do these days, Star Wars is growing so much that I don’t think I’ll always love the way they go.
