news culture Star Wars Andor: the scene that should not be missed in the finale of season 1 on Disney +
Now that all the episodes of the first season of Star Wars: Andor are available on Disney+, fans will be able to debate at leisure around this series directly linked to the plot of the film Rogue One. But there is one crucial scene you may have missed…
Star Wars Andor, it’s already over
By adding to the mythical ingredients of space opera a zest of espionage, outstanding protagonists and a complex plot, the spin-off series Star Wars: Andor quickly convinced fans of the saga. In particular those who enjoyed finding the spirit of the first feature films and above all the very special atmosphere of the film RogueOne to which the story of Cassian Andor is directly linked. But, while we knew from the start that the series would go back in time to help us better understand the importance of Andor’s character as a spy destined to steal the Death Star’s plans, the first season took its time before putting together the pieces of the puzzle. The real finale of episode 12 was able to rectify the situation in a scene that should not be missed.
Behind the scenes of the Empire and the beginnings of the rebellion
One of the main interests of the series Star Wars: Andor is to place ourselves from the point of view of the two camps: the Galactic Empire and the beginnings of the Rebel Alliance. By regularly switching the adopted perspectives, the first season thus allowed us to better understand the complexity of the context in which take place these events that will lead to the greatest turning points of the saga. Quickly perceived as the best series attached to the Star Wars galaxy, Andor has benefited from almost unanimous feedback from the press and fans who consider that it does not just offer simple entertainment but considerably deepens the background of the franchise. So is Andor the best Star Wars has done since Rogue One? Everyone will have their own idea on the matter. But it will still have been necessary to wait for the very last seconds to see the shadow of the Death Star looming.
A crucial scene to conclude season 1
It is indeed through a post-credits scene relegated to the end of the twelfth and last episode of season 1 that Star Wars: Andor confirmed a major element: Cassian Andor and the other prisoners of the Empire have worked well (in spite of themselves) to build the Death Star, the very one that will be at the heart of the events of the movie Rogue One . As saying that this bonus scene makes a direct connection to what awaits us in the next seasonespecially since this season 2 will then lead to the events of the film RogueOne. The creator and showrunner of the series, Tony Gilroy, gave some explanation on this subject.
We had the idea of the prison and the construction of this structure quite early. We thought, “Oh, they should be building the Death Star.” And then, you know, you follow the evolution and it’s like, “Oh, you know what? We should show this.” So the visual effects department loved this idea. And they raced to make it happen. – Tony Gilroy (creator and showrunner of the Star Wars series: Andor)
