The original artist is Hugh Fleming, who has an amazing portfolio of art commissioned by Lucasfilm.

Edit: Firstly, I enjoy this art and think it's good.

But Andor isn't Legends, the character and series are Canon. Edit: I just want to avoid confusion.

We have a Cassian and Jyn in Legends named Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors.

I think it's trying to stylize Andor as a legends book

u/CarsonWentzGOAT1 Oct 01 '22

That's not the point. It is just stylized in a Legends way

That's cool. It is cool art.

I apologize for my tone. I'm an old school EU fan and I'm disappointed that I'll only get Diego Luna as a visual reference to Katarn but not an adaptation.

I like all of the images from this series but couldn't get through R1.

This is the first time I realise they actually equivalate each other. Diego Luna would have made an awesome Katarn.

Yeah, the side by sides in image searches are great.

Anyone else think a better title for the show would be REBELLION ?

But we already have Star Wars Rebels

Somebody’s been studying the Drew Struzan style. Pretty amazing.

u/Poupe_Stayne Oct 02 '22

Did anyone else catch Starkillers Sith Armor in the episode!? I was like WTF

u/OutrageousRegular850 Oct 02 '22

To me it loses any possibility of being cool whenever the poster includes headshots of the main cast. It’s so overdone and pointless, and a real shame when it could have looked awesome and beautiful
