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 returns to Ferrix for Maarva’s funeral and learns of Bix’s imprisonment. Dedra Meero and the local Imperial garrison prepare to use the funeral to capture Andor for questioning regarding Axis, while Luthen plans – with Vel and Cinta’s assistance – to kill Cassian using the Imperial ambush as cover. The ISB succeed in stopping Kreegyr’s attack but leave no prisoners, angering Meero. Mothma’s 13-year-old daughter Leida is introduced to Davo Sculdun’s 14-year-old son. During the funeral, B2EMO displays a recording of Maarva, who rallies the populace to fight the Empire, creating a riot in the main quarter. During the confusion, Cassian rescues Bix, while Syril Karn saves Meero from being attacked. Meeting with B2EMO, Brasso, and several others in a shipyard, Cassian convinces them to take Bix somewhere safe away from Ferrix. Moved by the rebellion on Ferrix, Luthen returns to his ship where Cassian is waiting. Knowing that Luthen is there to assassinate him, Cassian offers Luthen the choice to either kill him or take him in, to which Luthen smiles.

In a post-credits scene, droids assemble the machinery produced by the Narkina 5 prisoners on the firing dish of the Death Star.
