    ‘Star Wars’: Why ‘Andor’ Had Overwhelmingly Low Performance Despite Positive Reviews?

    The rebellion ‘Andoris dominating the Star Wars space on the OTT post ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’. The new Disney+ series is focusing on the journey of Cassian Andor between the rise of the rebellion between the Episodes III and IV of the franchise.

    We first witnessed the rebel for the first time in ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’. Diego Luna portrayed the character of Cassian Andor as the first Mexican character in the hugely successful franchise. A large section of the audience enjoyed the series, but it failed to create an OTT impact. Why did it underperform despite good reviews?

    Unfortunately, the story of the rebel could not strike a chord with the audience members. The new series provides us with a prelude to the disturbing childhood of Cassian Andor to his joining the anarchist groups. However, the spy thriller’s performance on Disney+ is disappointing despite its supreme writing and technical details.

    On Twitter, an analyst from Parrot Analytics, Brandon Katz shared disappointing statistics about the series. The stats showed that there is diminishing demand for Andor than other Star Wars releases on Disney+.

    He wrote, “The most disappointing trend I’ve come across recently is how audience demand for Andor is overwhelmingly lower than The Mandalorian S1-2, The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi despite the fact that it is easily the best Star Wars series BY FAR.”

    Why Did The Series Have Such Low Demand?


    Brandon also shared the graphical representation of the disappointing statistics. The orange line represents ‘The Book of Boba Fett’, and the red and the purple line represents the two seasons of ‘The Mandalorian’. The green and blue lines represent ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ and ‘Andor’. The blue line has been seen since the ‘START’ of the series.

    The series has to combat the overwhelming competition from ‘She Hulk’, ‘House Of Dragons’, and ‘The Rings Of The Power’. The expansion of the ‘Lord Of The Rings’ world had 1.3 million minutes viewed. There is another section of the Star Wars geeks who found the show ‘slow and boring.’ Kratz said about the LucasFilms’ show, “‘Andor ’ is exactly the sort of high quality four quadrant (as opposed to younger skewing) title D+ needs to expand its demo.”
