We’re a quarter of the way Andor As of its three-episode debut on Disney Plus earlier this week, and by all accounts, the show appears to be firing on all cylinders. The pre-rebellion Star Wars The universe is a fascinating yet terrifying setting and protagonist Cassian Andor has a whole new space to breathe alongside the many new characters we’ve been introduced to.
But it won’t just be new characters flanking either side of Cassian. We’ve been waiting for some cameos from the latest Star Wars property, and among the most prominent of these is Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera, an extremist rebel whose incredibly violent moves against the Empire caused the Rebel Alliance to cut ties with him, according to the events of rogue onewhich Andor is a prequel to.
Gerrera eventually goes on to form his own band of rebels, known as the Partisans, but seeing how Andor is set before the Rebel Alliance existed, the show will likely introduce a side and backstory of Gerrera that we haven’t seen yet.
And it looks like we’ll have to be patient about what Gerrera’s deal is. Andor. When asked what we can expect from Gerrera over the course of the show’s first and second seasons during an interview with The Playlist, series creator Tony Gilroy took pleasure in how the show explores the status of the “sleeping giant.” of the future Rebel Alliance.
Stellan [Skarsgård] is playing a character, Luthen [Rael] that he’s been quietly building a network and being a talent scout and a binder and a solicitor for all these different things. And this is the moment when he is going to make noise. And the show really, particularly in the second season that we’re going to do over the next four years, the other 12 episodes that we’re going to do, it’s really about what happens to… look, this revolution is hundreds of different groups and people. and rebellions everywhere that are brewing and brewing, and they don’t know each other, and they don’t notice each other.
Andor is currently available to stream on Disney Plus, with new episodes releasing every Wednesday until the season finale on November 23.
