5 facts to know before watching Star Wars: Andor – The latest Star Wars series 

Andor, which deviates from the standard Disney+ format of six episodes and has the promise to be an amazing addition to the canon, is Star Wars’ upcoming debut into Disney+ original TV, and anticipation for it is growing.

Through press releases and teasers, the series’ admirers have already learned quite a deal about it, and there are numerous things they should be aware of before watching the show.

While prior reading may not be overly necessary for Andor, keeping in mind specific details and tales might better facilitate assumptions and enhance the visual experience.

Here are a few facts to know before watching Andor. 

How the seasons are set 

Twelve episodes will make up each season, double the number of episodes in Marvel Disney+ and Obi-Wan Kenobi series. While season 2 spans four years, moving a year after three episodes, producing four arcs throughout the season with different directors, all of which lead into Rogue One, season 1 will occur over a year between 5 BBY and 4BBY.

Andor forms the basis of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 

Cassian Andor, the show’s title character, is portrayed by Diego Luna.

As an espionage for the Rebel Alliance, the protagonist was first presented in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He undertook a suicide mission on the planet Scarif with a group of rebels, along with the primary character Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), to obtain the blueprints for a top-secret Empire weapon.

The Death Star, which was initially proposed in the first trilogy, ended up being that weapon. Because the character eventually dies in Rogue One, Andor takes place before that movie. It explains the character’s involvement in the revolt and how he encounters his allies.

Mon Mothma is a pivotal character in the Rebel Alliance 

As the President of the Rebel Alliance and the one who spearheads the decisive assault on the Empire, Mon Mothma first made an appearance in “Return of the Jedi” (portrayed by Caroline Blakiston).

After being chosen as the Rebel Alliance’s leader, Mothma is shown in Rogue One attempting to halt the trip to Scarif.

Andor will depict Mothma’s life as a dual agent operating out of Coruscant, the imperial capital, before she rose to become the rebel commander. She is shown as a senator there, attempting to learn the mysteries of the Empire.

The connection between Andor and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 

Rogue One had raised the stakes too high for the ramifications of a result that the majority of people already know feels excruciatingly genuine. Having such a large cast for a single film prohibited any of them from being addressed too much beyond that of Jyn Erso, which was one of the movie’s complaints. Since Andor starts only a few years after Cassian’s sacrifice, it will feature a comparably mature Cassian, although viewers can certainly anticipate learning more about the war-tested Rebel spy’s beginnings through flashback scenes.

Saw Gerrera is also making an appearance in Andor 

Saw Gerrera, another Star Wars relic, is depicted in the Andor movie trailers.

The Onderonian rebel was originally seen in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, when he was engaged in a civil war on his native land to defend his people against Separatists led by Count Dooku, the Sith commander.

Gerrera collaborated with the Republic, a progressive galactic organization that was subsequently perverted by the Sith to create the Empire, during the course of his mission. In order to oppose the Empire’s new reign, Gerrera (played by Forest Whitaker) is a terrorist leader as he begins his live-action debut.

In Rogue One, the Death Star also executed him, but the next “Star Wars” series will demonstrate how his strategies split the rebellion into the violent and benevolent wings.
