From new planets to outdated planets to misplaced Jedi, there was so much to see within the three-part premiere episodes of Andor.
The large three-part premiere of Andor hit Disney+ yesterday and the long run Rebel spy’s story is off to a promising begin! We’ve been promised a present largely with out fan service. And true to his phrase, Tony Gilroy’s has given us a present that appears like will probably be its personal insulated story with its personal characters. But that doesn’t imply there aren’t Andor doesn’t have any enjoyable particulars or Easter eggs.
In the primary episode new character, Timm, asks, “Are we bidding on the Wobani run tomorrow?” It’s a throw-away line meant to interrupt a tense dialog after which be instantly forgotten. But Wobani could sound acquainted to some followers. Wobani housed an Imperial detention middle slash labor camp. The similar detention middle the place Cassian and Okay-2S0 met Jyn Erso for the primary time.
We study all through the course of those episodes that Cassian’s true dwelling planet is Kenari. We don’t know a complete lot about this planet but, however the neighborhood that Cassian (or Kassa, as he was initially known as) belonged to was indigenous and seemingly comprised solely of kids and really younger adults. Apparently, there was some form of mining catastrophe on Kenari and the planet was thought-about poisonous and deserted by the Separatist/Republic mining group. But we’ll get again to this in a second.
But Kenari isn’t what’s written on any of Cassian’s paperwork. Officially, he’s from a spot known as Fest. This planet has proven up just a few instances, each in canon and legends timelines. Currently, it homes a significant Rebel base whereas in legends it held an Imperial base. This a becoming place for Cassian to lie about being from contemplating his upcoming affiliation with the Rebel Alliance.
Plo Koon’s Mask
In these episodes, we meet Luthen Rael, a mysterious purchaser for Cassian’s ill-gotten items, Cassian’s recruiter into the Rebellion, and apparently a collector of form of bummer artifacts. In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it second, we will see what seems like Plo Koon’s masks in Luthen’s workplace. The fan-favorite and criminally underutilized Jedi launched a younger Ahsoka Tano to the Jedi Council again within the animated The Clone Wars. We’re fairly certain we noticed this character die on display in Revenge of the Sith, and if any person is casually holding onto the masks he must breathe, he may be gone for good.

Fighting Since He Was Six
In Rogue One Cassian informed Jyn that he had been “in this fight” since he was six years outdated. And now that we’ve seen a younger Cassian/Kassa, it’s clear that he actually has been preventing his entire life. But who? We see his tribe of youngsters on Kenari tackle an attacking grownup, nevertheless it’s unclear who they’re. Maarva refers to them as Republic officers whereas the uniforms and insignias look extra Separatist to me. So who ran that mining operation? How was it destroyed? And who was the unique enemy Kassa was within the combat in opposition to?
Believe it or not, episode two was the primary on-screen use of the phrase “caf.” Which in fact is espresso in Star Wars converse. Y’know, as a result of espresso has a lot CAFfeine. The phrase has been round since 1996 and was used within the present canon in Jon Jackson Miller’s 2014 novel, A New Dawn. But that is the primary time we see any person drink
espresso caf on display and consult with it by identify. which is wild to me. You’d suppose that individuals with the sleep schedules of any Rebel or Imperial officer alike could be guzzling the stuff 24/7. Or perhaps they speak about their sizzling brown morning potion lower than us Earthlings.
