Introduction

Andor, also known as Star Wars: Andor, is an American science-fiction action-adventure television series created by Tony Gilroy for the streaming service Disney+. It is the fourth live-action series in the Star Wars franchise, as well as a prequel to both the spin-off film Rogue One (2016) and the original Star Wars film (1977).

The series follows thief-turned-Rebel spy Cassian Andor during the five years that lead to the events of the two above-mentioned films.

The first season of Andor premiered on Disney+ on 21 September 2022, with three episodes, to positive reviews from critics. The rest of the season’s episodes were released weekly through 23 November. A second season is currently being filmed in the UK. It will conclude the series, and lead into the events of Rogue One.

Outline

Cassian is brought to a prison surrounded by water on Narkina 5 where he spends every day working in monotonous heavy industry with hundreds of other prisoners. Vel and Cinta travel to Ferrix to search for him. When Maarva falls ill, Bix attempts to contact Luthen about Cassian’s whereabouts, but Luthen, worried about being exposed to anyone monitoring communications, does not answer. He then leaves Coruscant to meet with Saw Gerrera. Rael attempts to hire Gerrera’s rebel cell to act as air support for a raid on an Imperial power station at Spellhaus organised by Anto Kreegyr, but is turned away. Dedra Meero questions Syril Karn about his experiences on Ferrix, but declines his offer to help with her investigation. She leads a unit to Ferrix herself, where she apprehends Bix.
