nobody movie_Andor Trailer Breakdown: The Rebellion Begins

The trailer begins with a character called “Time Grappler” banging on a giant bell on Cassian Andor’s home planet. This is followed by shots of a group of people crouching, slowly looking up, only to be greeted by the terrifying sight of a burning spaceship plunging across the sky.

Then we catch a glimpse of a factory worker dressed all in white and a droid casually rolling around a junkyard (droids! gotta love ’em). Subsequent footage shows the people of the world striving to take up arms, clearly (and rightly) expecting the worst from the arrival of the Galactic Empire’s forces.

Perhaps the big draw here (apart from the prevailing mood of doom and gloom) is the muted, earth-toned color palette of the “Andor” footage. Jonathan Freeman (Game of Thrones) and Adriano Goldman (Sin Nombre) served as cinematographers in the show’s first season, but they clearly channeled the cinematographer from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Greig Fraser’s approach to capture a galaxy far, far away in all its dingy, muddy glory. The handheld camerawork and dingy texture of the “Andor” teaser creates a sense of consistency with the look of the “Star Wars” universe as seen in that film, complementing its plot and themes. At the same time, it contrasts starkly with the brighter lighting and western themes of a show like The Book of Boba Fett.
