AHSOKA does indeed require a lot of hours watching other star wars projects but ANDOR works for both fans and the normals. You don't have to have seen even the OT to follow it and enjoy it.I can understand Disney wanting SW to widen its appeal to more of the so-called 'normies'.
Therefore, it seems strange that they would focus their recent prime D+ shows on characters that the vast majority of the 'normies' wouldn't know or care about (Andor, Ahsoka etc.).
Seems a bit of an odd strategy.
A strategy that doesn't seem to be paying off. According to Neilson, Ahsoka has already dropped out of the Top 10 after only its second week.
Unfortunately, a lot of the audience seems to be hitting that red remote button.
I agree with monkey_roo that SW needs to slowdown and go for the 'quality over quantity' approach.
If that means going back to the two year 'event movie' schedule, then so be it.
Rather that, than seeing SW slowing fade away on a failing streaming service.
The 'enjoyable but forgettable' approach doesn't seem to be cutting it, I'm afraid.
Put the stormtroopers in different costumes and you wouldn't even know it was Star Wars. Kind of the same for ROGUE ONE.
